Of course, the idea is to make DOK membership and communion with the Anglican Communion the exclusive right of Episcopalians, forcing conservatives who have ties to either organization as part of their spirituality to stay put in the Episcopal Church, despite the Episcopal Church’s wholesale repudiation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in favor of a secular/cosmic-humanist/marxist combo worldview in the church, where you can believe whatever you want so long as you don’t buck the hierarchy and don’t buck the liberal evolutionary trend.
I hope that every member of the Daughters of the King who has perhaps held onto an idea that, come what may in the Episcopal Church, the commitment of this organization to Christ is unflappable, and who could not imagine that anyone in the Episcopal Church would declare war on such a benevolent and spiritually uplifting organization as this. Think again. The first female Presiding Bishop, rather than supporting this organization, is declaring war on it.
Of course, this is not surprising to me. It is an organization that acknowledges the Kingship (read male leadership) of the actual person of Jesus Christ, not some etherial non-sexual Christ. This is incompatible with the Episcopal Church of today.
Although it is not surprising to me at this point, if someone had told me this would happen before GC2006, I could scarcely have believed it.
