    I don’t suppose that this new journal will publish opposing views……liberal vs conservative……will they? If they do, it will be a distinct improvement. Will they give conservatives short shrift, or will they permit their views to be aired?

    I have no idea of how the new rag will be any better than the old one, especially since it has the same editor. Many in Episcopal “Church” leadership think everything is a matter of marketing, when the real problem is that they have lots of style, but no substance.

    I’m not holding my breath for the first issue.

    But its not the “same” editorship — and that’s what make this exciting. This will be a truly independent news source. Jerry Hames and the editorial board will not be under the control of the presiding bishop or her staff. And I know Jerry and I believe he will be fair.

    Give the Journal a few issues to hit its stride. I think the church will be better for having a new, fresh voice. I’m looking forward to it.

    Is it significant that this has been reported by TLC but not by ENS?
