TEC Executive Council Task force releases report on Anglican Covenant

An Executive Council task force has released a report it received from the Standing Commission on Constitution and Canons outlining the changes that would be needed if the General Convention decides to sign onto the Anglican Covenant.

“The SCCC is of the view that adoption of the current draft Anglican Covenant has the potential to change the constitutional and canonical framework of [the Episcopal Church], particularly with respect to the autonomy of our Church, and the constitutional authority of our General Convention, bishops and dioceses,” says the report.

In a statement June 24, the D023 (Anglican Covenant) task force wrote that it has released the report now because of “legitimate concerns raised about issues of transparency around a decision as important for our Church as the Anglican Covenant.”

    It sounds as though those opposed to the Covenant are finally realizing what it is about – fellowship requires self-control and, where it’s lacking, discipline. Imagine such a novel idea!

    Yeah, nice, isn’t it?

    The irony is in the last two paragraphs of the quotes. All those types of changes they are wringing their hands over have been snuck through with little hindrance in the past decade, and without much transparency.
