out of the frying pan...
By Diogenes (articles ) | May 12, 2006
Seems you just can't win these days if you're a conservative Anglican. Just as you heave that first sigh of relief, upon learning that the next bishop of the California diocese will not be an avowed homosexual, you take a look around, and notice a different problem:
The crisis came not in the much touted election in San Francisco, where the three partnered gay and lesbian priests lost to the suffragan Bishop of Alabama in the election for Bishop of California, but in the diocese of Northern California which elected a twice divorced and thrice married priest to be its next bishop.

Become Catholic, and then watch how 2000 years of tradition desintegrate in only 40.

There is a cure for heterosexual behavior: it's called celebacy ala Origen.

As I keep saying, celibacy is the problem... Huh? He what...? Three times...? Um, never mind.

Well, well well. We don't make bishops of them (yet), but we have plenty of married priests and nuns in the U.S.and some of them divorced. Once the camel's nose gets under the tent... The anglicans may have just gotten into the tent before we did. Better pray, fast, do penance, and spend some time in Eucharistic Adoration.

The Anglican Church is a sad example of what happens when you break communion with Rome. They have lost their way. It should also be view as a warning to those tempted by heterodoxy, "feel-good" religion. Simply put, the Anglican church has lost relevance in much of the world, particularly the UK. I heard somewhere that a disproportionate number of Catholic converts in recent years are former Anglicans, even including Anglican clergy. All are welcome to the fullness of truth.
