AFRICAN ANGLICANS WIDEN RIFT WITH WEST

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 07, 2004

... So reads a headline in the current Tablet. The reference, of course, is to the refusal of many leaders of Anglican churches in Africa to accept gay marriage and gay bishops. What's interesting is the rebuke implicit in the Tablet's take. The Brits and Americans have embraced doctrines that no Anglican bishop held (or imagined holding) even fifty years ago. The Africans are simply standing pat. So, which party is widening the rift?

Wrong again.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Old joke: Man and wife, driving home from their 40th anniversary dinner. She's leaning against the passenger side door and says, "Harry, when we were first married we never sat this far apart. We always snuggled together when we were in the car." From the steering wheel, Harry replies, "I ain't moved."

    It's very much like the insistence on the part of the "mainstream" press in this country, which insists that since Bush won, he has to "reach out" to the Democrats---in other words, do more of what they want. Hey, folks: Bush WON. Just as the African Anglicans are the ones who are FAITHFUL to Christianity.
