The Liberal Primate of Brazil Orlando S. De Oliveira responding to the sentence of Superior Ecclesiastical Court in a special meeting of the House of Bishops decide to put down the Evangelical Bishop Robinson Cavalcanti of the Anglican Diocese of Recife, Brazil. Bishop Cavalcanti already communicated to the Liberal Primate and Court that he is going to right appeal in 30 days. Today a joint meeting of the Standing Committee, Archdeacons and Secretariat is going to be held to issue a response. The tendency is to ignore the Liberal Primate Decree and to make another appeal to the Instruments of Unity of the Anglican Communion and to continue recognize the authority of the Bishop Cavalcanti.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-7 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar and newheart.

It's only the compassionate thing to do with someone so terribly confused as to think that there might be something wrong with the liberal agenda. :-(
