It will, of course, not be pretty for reasons completely unrelated to the current unpleasantness. However, I’m sure the current unpleasantness will make things all the worse.
I really haven’t felt much like blogging about the Anglican Crisis (TM) lately. Litigation continues apace, with the Attorney General of Viriginia siding with CANA and filing a brief under his duty to argue the constitutionality of all Virginia statutes. My advice? Contact you local legislator and get Virginia’s division statute passed in your state – if it is Constitutional, it effectively prohibits the judiciary from using the hierarchical church theory in a church property dispute involving a church split involving more than one parish vs. the rest of the church, like the current unpleasantness.
Bishop Schofield has now been inhibited. I find this insignificant inasmuch as he has left the building, so to speak.

The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) in Jerusalem this summer will surely be significant, and I should have some news soon on some possible attendees.
