October 25 2004 By virtueonline Is it all over for Anglican Communion?..orthodox rectors losses up

Two cases in point proved that this week in the Episcopal Church. The Anglo-Catholic priest Fr. Daren Williams at Christ Church, Williamsport, PA whose parish wanted to be a part of Forward in Faith, (a story I reported on last month) was forced to resign by his bishop William Creighton. In one quick pronouncement, the bishop declared Christ Church was "in a pastoral emergency" and took the church away. He's gone.

October 18 2004 By virtueonline LONDON: Windsor Report to be unveiled...reaction...ECUSA must repent or else...

Those in charge of the event at the Anglican Communion News Service are in overload. Their job is not to be envied. It is tough all the way round, regardless of where you stand.

From 2002 -2003, the Episcopal Church lost an estimated 30,221 members, equivalent to the size of the Diocese of Colorado. In that same year, the ECUSA declined 21,640 in average Sunday attendance. That would be like losing all the worshipping Episcopalians in the dioceses of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. This information was released at a meeting of the diocesan administrators meeting recently in New York.

September 21 2004 By virtueonline Will Apb suspend ECUSA and Griswold or just 60 bishops?...ECUSA news...more

Another perspective has it that the report might actually recommend suspension of the 60 bishops who consecrated Robinson rather than the entire church, so if that is the case Lambeth would be right to point that out. They have not done so.

As the document is now in the hands of liberals, there is a very real danger that its contents will be leaked to newspapers like The Guardian who would spin it before orthodox believers could see it. Virtuosity is pulling out all the stops to get it for its readers.

September 07 2004 By virtueonline Denial over for fudge Lambeth Commission report...ECUSA news...

The plain facts are that the Lambeth/Eames Commission report will not be an Anglican fudge. The report is going to have teeth; it will be disastrous for the Anglican Communion's pansexualists; there will be some kind of "formal suspension" of The Episcopal Church, following which there will be a radical restructuring of the Anglican Communion that could see the dissolution of the Anglican Communion Office in London because of its ultra-liberal pro-Western stance.
