Read it all.
How can I say that this story does not surprise me in the least.
[blockquote]Rose explained to the delegation how the Episcopal Church’s mission office is structured and how it carries out its work.
One of the struggles, she said, is that the church believes that government is responsible for providing citizens with the basics — access to food, shelter, clothing, jobs — “a safety net,” and is careful not to undertake the work of government.
Since when is government responsible for providing jobs?
Oh yes, the Church should certainly not be in the business of providing food, shelter, or clothing to starving people…how gauche.

So I guess Ms. Rose may not be familiar with Matthew 25:31 etc.
I hope they spent ample time with PB Mao! (sorry, couldn’t resist. 😉 )
(ENS) Chinese delegation visits Episcopal Church Center to learn about charitable work
Then onto Transylvania to fact-find on blood transfusion.
What – not a mention of human rights abuses? Shameful.
Following in the footsteps of our “inclusive” forebears and their kowtowing to Henry VIII, 815 knows exactly how to do the Erastian dance with the Chinese today. It was probably easier and more comfortable than speaking with Republicans! Bringing up those “abuses” would have meant an act of cross-border intervention… a big no-no in the Center’s book.
It is indeed hard to believe what this group of ideologues will stoop to as they pursue their doomed policy.
Commies at 815? But, how do you tell who is who?
Considering the zeal that 815 and SARA share in persecuting Christian churches and congregations whcih want to be free to practice the faith once delivered.; I think this meet up is a match made in heaven. Though perhaps it would have made more sense for SARA to send their team in charge of litigation.
I am also curious just how many brown bag lunches do you suppose could be provided with what 815 spent on litigation against break away congregations? Surely more than the two brown bag lunches a week currently provided by Trinity.
