April 05 2006 By virtueonline Kanuga: Penny drops for bishops..GC2006..Akinola in America..Ohio, Florida, more

It was another week in which the limits of our unity within the Anglican Communion were severely tested.

Reports coming out of the recent House of Bishops meeting in Kanuga indicating an about face or climb-down from the Episcopal Church's current positions on pansexuality were wildly exaggerated, but "extreme caution" and "repentance" are in the probable wording of the recommendations from the Special Commission.

March 29 2006 By virtueonline Williams weighs options if more gay bishops...Albany elects orthodox bishop...

They will discuss the implications for the Church of England and how the 'Instruments of Unity' should respond to whatever happens in ECUSA this summer.

March 23 2006 By virtueonline Delusion must end about ECUSA...No bishop for Tennessee...Bennison faces end...

And then, and only then, will the Archbishop of Canterbury act. Maybe.

The only question now is how long will the delusion continue? How much longer do we "listen", that now much over used over abused word that is designed to do nothing more than delay and stall. How much longer will the deception continue behind fine words and trust funds used to manipulate with an endless supply of checks?

March 16 2006 By virtueonline Civil War in Diocese of Pennsylvania...SC ruling favors AMIA...DEPO in Ohio...

They MUST declare that ECUSA and the Diocese of New Westminster, and anybody else who so thoroughly violates our common understanding of theology, anthropology, ethics and being "in communion", has made the decision to "walk apart."

Dr. Williams does NOT want to do this. His answer to one orthodox Episcopal bishop to his very direct and insistent question, on the very day he became Archbishop, was: "I want to remain in communion with those who want to remain in communion with me."

March 08 2006 By virtueonline Williams: Rupture coming in the Communion...New Province?..Last GC for orthodox?

The statement by Dr. Williams this past week was the clearest warning yet - but the question is, is the Episcopal Church's House of Bishops listening?

March 01 2006 By virtueonline Griswold with Gays in Paris...Chane rips Akinola...Integrity Plans revealed...

The actions and words of bishops like Charles E. Bennison of Pennsylvania and John Chane Bishop of Washington give ample evidence that they will stop at nothing to hold onto power even as they destroy the kernel, that is, orthodox remnants within their own dioceses and blast global south archbishops who won't roll over to their agenda.

February 21 2006 By virtueonline ACN announces "7th Convocation"...Rowan "The Caterpillar Man", More on Robinson

The Episcopal Church may have thought it was getting an openly gay bishop, but what the church didn't know was that it was also getting a closeted alcoholic.

One insightful person wrote that Robinson has no intention of doing the right thing. The bishop indicated he plans to return to work after his 28-day recovery period is over.

February 15 2006 By virtueonline ECUSA dioceses in financial free fall...Robinson Admits being Alcoholic...more

Consider the following:

The DIOCESE OF PENNSYLVANIA has a shortfall of between $500,000 and $950,000, and the diocese can barely raise $300,000 from its parishes. Officials will dip into unrestricted net assets again to keep the diocese afloat. And the standing committee wants Bishop Bennison's head on a platter for his unrestrained spending habits (not his theological utterances), which may have depleted the UNA from $4 million to zero. They will need an audit to know for sure.

February 09 2006 By virtueonline More priests, parishes flee...ARCIC dead over women bishops...Parsley, Bennison

It was another week in which priests and parishes fled the Episcopal Church. From Florida to Virginia to San Diego, orthodox priests announced that they had had enough of ECUSA's apostasies and were leaving.

February 04 2006 By virtueonline Presiding Bishop Slate...Bennison's Humiliation...Diocesan News...more

The only question is how will the Episcopal Church's remnant respond? There are rumors of wholesale departures of priests and parishes after GC2006, the like of which we have never seen before. VirtueOnline believes these rumors to be substantially true, but we have been asked not to reveal details at this time.
