Random Monday Night Thoughts I Posted Over At StandFirm

I got on such a roll that the initial context just didn’t matter:

Moreover, would anyone really be surprised if TEC sued Fort Worth when they leave? Of course they will, as they will sue San Joaquin and Quincy? I mean, we’ve already heard this from David Booth Beers, Katharine Jefferts Shori, from the Executive Council, and GC2006 if you attended any Constitution and Canons Committee meetings. Heck, I couldn’t even get that committee to add the requirement of a trial for abandonment of communion where a denial of the same is filed by the respondent priest. Think about that, for a second; let that sink in. These folks aren’t all of a sudden resorting to Russian negotiation. That’s been the policy from day one. The sad part is, they have a really difficult time actually making good on threats – the first two fastballs always seem to get buy them. Don’t know why, but considering the “plan” that 815 had in place for the HOB meeting was non-existent, and that they actually based their response on the Windsor Bishops resolution after watering it down to the point where you couldn’t taste the water of life anymore, hey, they just aren’t that organized, and shame on us for still losing. It’s like we conservatives are like LSU was last Saturday against Tulane in the first quarter. What gives? They all have clay feet. We are just way too dumb to realize it.

I guess I needed to rant.

    >>They all have clay feet.

    Indeed they do. But it is not a matter of being dumb, but of being unwilling to act. It may be laziness/tradition, worry about the rector’s pension, the church mortgage, a pet lay ministry, or any number of other things. There is simply no excuse for not asking yourself each and every day what you have done to oppose TEC’s new religion, and those who promulgate it. Not just thought about, or prayed about, or blogged about, but DONE! And don’t even think about saying you have more important issues as an excuse! You may well have them, but unless you are personally staving off World War IV, or about to discover a cure for AIDS, you ALSO have time for this if it really matters to you.

    I would think about it, probably for more than a second, if I knew what the hell it meant! scuse language

    Brad, this is confirmation of my optimism for the outcome of the current mess. Yes, 815 is in the hands of brutal, amoral totalitarian thugs. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the regime is Mussoliniesque in its fumbling incompetence, so we’ll unquestionably win in the end and have some laughs at their expense along the way.
