A Christian, Anglican, Lawyer, Father and Prison Minister, On Church and Life
This is all sort of like a British bobby with no gun. “Stop! Or I’ll say ‘stop’ again!”
Reminds me of an old toothless dog we had. He would defend his home against strangers, even when that meant only a wheezing bark, and with sufficient provocation, biting them on the leg and giving them a good gumming.
This proposal offers nothing new. It is a warmed-over repeat — with even fewer teeth — than the utterly ineffectual and unimplemented “Pastoral Council” proposal of 2007.
More HERE, where the document is analyzed:
I have watched the bait and switch technique of the Episcoleft since they gutted the Book of Common Prayer after promising to just clean up the archaic expressions, leaving us a very common book of prayer indeed.
In the cascades of bad faith and dissembling issuing from the revisionists since then the process is the same: Promise one thing, do another. I will not enumerate the dreary history of their lies. We all know them by heart by now.
This latest attempt is just ridiculous. The “reforms” they propose have absolutely no chance of success, having no credible enforcement, and rely on the good will and approval of TEC HOBD. Now there’s a group you can really trust.
Nothing new here, just a new wrapper. It is a dud!
Sadly, for so many, this looks more and more like an open door to the gradual reception of TEC’s agenda. Really, why can’t this Conference and this Communion simply say NO! This is just more process that allows the different spiritual reality that is TEC to continue to deceive and slither as it attempts to replace the light with the dark. This is beginning to feel like just so much “merde”. Nuts.
As a now famous individual said, “Good thing we don’t have to go through Lambeth to get to Jesus.” Now I’m sorry I waited for this bomb shell to be released! I could have been out improving my gold score.
Moratorium = we’ll do it later
Is this another invitation for yet another “conversation”? If so the Anglican Communion should remember what happened to the Oysters who accepted the invitation for a walk and a talk with the Walrus and the Carpenter:
“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”
The Oysters found the “conversation” terminal. They came to “the table” as the main course.
How about if this report is “Rowan, you dropped the ball badly on the DES Communique. Luckily our team recovered. Now – here’s the ball again, and this time DON’T DROP IT!!!”
the far right and the far left are going to vote together on this – “NO” just like they did at GC06 when it came to voting on Windsor Complient resolutions. It will be the squeaky middle that gets it through albiet with no teeth. Where is the beef?
Very good publish. I just now stumbled upon your blog site as well as desired to point out that I’ve truly beloved looking a person’s website blogposts. In any event I’ll be registering to a person’s feed that i’m expecting you’re writing all over again immediately!
