let's pretend

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 09, 2005

The Church of England's Clean Sheets Pastoral Provision -- unimprovably distilled by CaNN in the phrase "You may swim, provided you don't get wet" -- is running into some flak south of the Channel. In a Church Times article phlegmatically titled, "Akinola's Demand to 'Suspend' C of E Viewed with Caution," some African bishops are quoted as unimpressed:

The Primate of Central Africa, Dr Bernard Malango, reportedly told the journalists that he intended to write to the Archbishop of Canterbury to criticise the pastoral statement, and said: "If Rowan has approved this, it is very unfortunate. It makes me sick. They have to explain what they mean by being married and having no sex. This is the final nail in the coffin of the entire Anglican Communion."

Methinks the issue requires further study.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
