Read it all.
I will be greatly interested in reading Barry Beisner’s thoughts on this matter, especially since he and Tom Breidenthal (who also voted no) are have the deepest grounded in historical Anglican thought, the best-read, and most thoughful of all the TEC bishops.
1. A Senior Priest,
I hope they come up with something more than Prayer Book violations. It seems like if most of the criticism is based on this then he could be put up again and promise not to mess with the BCP. (Of course this kind of BCP tinkering will go on at GenCon09). There is nothing that he has said or done that could not be spun, repented of, or reeducated and then TEC leadership put him up, endorse him and say it was just a misunderstanding. What will we do if he gets the consents the second time around and there will be a second time around? We will sigh and say, “Aint if awful”.
Read Tom Breidenthal’s analysis of Genpo’s deficient theology of atonement, etc.
A twice divorced, thrice married “bishop” probably should simply abstain otherwise you have that log and mote thing.
