    You know she’s desperate to rid herself of the taint of “anathema” when you’ve got people news releasing tea with Primates of Provinces!

    Note how carefully this is phrased too. We are informed that KJS “has accepted the invitations of Primates of Anglican Communion provinces in Asia to visit, address diocesan gatherings, celebrate Eucharist and preach during February and early March.”

    But . . . but . . . [i]where[/i] precisely will she be addressing “diocesan gatherings,” and [i]where[/i] precisely will she “celebrate Eucharist and preach”?

    Ah . . . perhaps that is answered by the list of four Anglican Communion provinces in the third paragraph: the Philippines, Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong.

    But no . . . because we are told that what she will be doing in [i]those[/i] four provinces [i]specifically[/i] is “visit and meet with the Anglican Primates” there.

    Now — it may be that our Presiding Bishop will “address diocesan gatherings, celebrate Eucharist and preach” in all four of those Anglican Communion provinces and if so, that’s an achievement . . . for her.

    But we don’t know that from this news release.


    We know that she is having tea with the Primates of four Anglican Communion Provinces. And we know that she will “address diocesan gatherings, celebrate Eucharist and preach” . . . somewhere or other . . .

    But the most important thing we know is that Katharine Jefferts Schori needs to announce publicly that she is invited to go to some Anglican Communion provinces.

    Well, it appears that she’s merely visiting the provinces that are friendly to her, so at least her heresy will be contained within their borders.

    [blockquote]Day of Shining Star to Be Commemorated in Foreign Countries

    Pyongyang, February 6 (KCNA) — Events to mark the 70th birth anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il (the Day of the Shining Star) were held in different countries.

    They included a meeting and film show in Pakistan on Jan. 28 and a lecture in Benin on Jan. 30.

    The chairman of the Pakistan Association for Self-Reliance Studies and other speakers highly praised the exploits performed by Kim Jong Il for the noble cause of ensuring the prosperity of the country and wellbeing of the people and peace and security of the world, adding that it is quite natural for progressive humankind and Juche idea followers to commemorate his birth anniversary.

    He would be always alive in the hearts of the Korean people and global progressive humankind forever and his exploits in the international working class movement and global independence would shine forever, they noted, and continued:
    The chairman and secretary general of the Benin National Committee for the Study of General Kim Jong Il’s Works said Kim Jong Il pursued original Songun politics, putting forward the Korean People’s Army as a mainstay of the defense capability for self-defence and a main force for building a thriving nation. He was, indeed, a peerlessly illustrious commander of Songun.

    Socialism has won victory after victory in the DPRK and the invincibility of the Juche idea has been strikingly demonstrated worldwide despite the U.S.-led imperialist allied forces’ persistent moves to stifle the DPRK for several decades thanks to the treasured sword of Songun provided by him.

    The revolutionary cause of Juche is sure to triumph as long as the dear respected Kim Jong Un follows the Songun politics, they concluded.[/blockquote]

    I remember her great tour Down Under in 2010. She was invited to preach at ONE rather obscure parish in Brisbane.

    There are five metropolitan Archbishops in Australia and none of them asked her to speak at their cathedrals or any major event. The Primate (++Aspinall) in his mercy gave her one small gig and then bundled her on her way. She’s just an embarrassment.
