It is so convoluted and confusing that one doubts that even the mystic Sufi Rumi could make sense of it if they all met on a plain in NJ’s Meadowlands. Furthermore one seriously doubts the Holy Ghost had much to do with the compromise either. After all the Spirit of Truth will never compromise on sexual sin, that at least is one truth that is absolute.Read more
The letter, which Griswold received on the eve of the Camp Allen meeting of the House of Bishops was described by a Lambeth Palace source as “too hot to leak”.
The strongly worded message to Griswold has yet to be read to the House of Bishops, but it is thought that Griswold will drop a paragraph or two during the HOB meeting.

The ECUSA's current problems are a direct result of previous problems not only unresolved, but continuing and growing and getting worse by the day. A quick fix is no longer possible.
And the worse they become the more "gracious" and "conversation[al]" our Presiding Bishop becomes in his words as he walks his way through the jungle swamp hoping that the crocodiles gathering around him have already feasted on a Primate or two, and therefore have no interest in him.Read more

The dollar dry-up is another sign of the continued decline in parish giving to both the local diocese and national church.Read more
It is absolutely ironic that they call themselves the Via Media, in Latin, the Middle Way, because in truth they are as far from being the 'middle way', as a drunk driver telling a cop that he was driving down the middle of the road, because he was frightened that if drove on either side of the road he might just drive off the black top and hit a tree.Read more
The CAPA bishops intend to take up the serious matters of faith and morals that confront the Communion. The ACNS statement completely omitted the stated agenda items from the CAPA statement. The topics to be discussed at the conference will include HIV/AIDS, political instability, technological stagnation, poverty and ecclesiastical issues and the current state of the worldwide Anglican Communion.Read more
Griswold says he is concerned about the advisability of a constitutional amendment being put forth for discussion at this time. "Questions of sexuality are far from settled, and a constitutional amendment which was perceived as settling this matter might make it more difficult to engage in civil discourse around this topic."Read more
