May 17 2004 By virtueonline Wandering Shepherds -- Anglicans have had non-Christian bishops for decades

At the meeting, as reported by the Catholic Family & Human Rights
Institute, Paula Ettelbrick, executive director of the IGLHRC, called for
a "showdown with religion." One panel member, Princeton University

May 16 2004 By virtueonline On Bishop Otis Charles' "Marriage" - by Dr. Bill Atwood

It is easy to imagine how a relationship could be so intoxicating that objectivity about it is lost, but there is clear medical evidence that men who engage in same-sex intimacies shorten their lives dramatically.

Now, in 2004, we Anglicans in North America are faced with a crisis of leadership not unlike that of the Church of the colonies. Our parishes today do not have an absence of Episcopal leadership.

May 02 2004 By virtueonline A personal observation on the appointment of Jeffrey John - by David Phillips

The event was a media feeding frenzy. Cameras and reporters were everywhere. One TV network reporter walked up to me and said, “Are you here as a part of the anti-abortion group?” “No,” I said, “I am here as a part of the pro-life group.” She paused for quite a long time and then finally figured out what I was saying.

April 26 2004 By virtueonline CANADA: Wake Up, and Smell the Burning Coffee

`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.' Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll, Chapter 6 Alice's Adventures in Anglican Wonderland continue, with the latest news out of the final Canadian House of Bishops Meeting before General Synod: "Church heads to General Synod without "safety net" as bishops decline to endorse Task Force recommendations."

On the basis of his sermon in Cambridge yesterday, however, Dr Williams produced a false prospectus of Shell-like proportions. Politics fascinates him, understandably, but he seems unaware of the danger of striding, in his idiosyncratic way, into the middle of political controversies.

Thus, we are "entitled" to differ regarding important theological
and ethical matters" such as denying catholic Christology and the doctrine
