what price communion?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 02, 2006

Getting a taste of the medicine they've been spoon-feeding others for four decades, liberal Episcopalians spit it out:

"I used to be Communion über alles," said Judy Holding, a student at Yale Divinity School and a chaplain at Greenwich Hospital, "but now I'm asking, at what price Communion?"

Translation: While our side could dictate terms, the watchword was unity. Should we no longer have control, unity may be sacrificed to utility.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    As their present presiding bishop says, "We must never forget that God can surprise us." Well, surprise, surprise folks! The Episcopal Church has called good evil, and evil good; they have ignored the essential teaching handed down from the apostles; they have been like a gang of kids kicking a dog, and now seem surprised that the poor pooch is dying. About all they've got left is a bunch of gray-heads and hippies sitting around, mystified as to what's happened.
