Two 9/26/07 headlines:
“US Anglicans Reject Gay Bishops” [BBC news in London]
“Episcopal Bishops Reject Anglican Orders” [New York Times — orders here does not refer to ordination, but rather to the “order” to reject gay Bishops]
Two headlines from respected news organizations on the same statement but with an absolutely different understanding of what the HoB said. Pause for a moment in reverent, holy awe. After more than four centuries of work, behold the perfect manifestation of Anglican fudge. We shall not see this again in our lifetime.
The other interesting quote comes from Newsweek magazine: “a shift to the middle so slight and nuanced it’s almost imperceptible.”
–The Rev. Nathaniel Pierce lives in Trappe, Maryland
What was it I was hoping for above all in New Orleans? Clarity and not obfuscation. We got the latter and not the former, alas–KSH.
