say you're sorry

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 22, 2008

Fact: the last Lambeth Conference proclaimed that active homosexuality cannot be reconciled with Christian morality.

Fact: the Episcopal Church in the US has accepted the ordination of a bishop who is an active homosexual.

So why have the Episcopalian bishops of the US been welcomed this year to the Lambeth Conference, to participate in a meeting whose results they clearly feel free to ignore?

The Archbishop of Canterbury has answered that question.

"Corporately the (American) House of Bishops asked for forgiveness last year," said Dr Williams, "and 50% of the provinces (individual autonomous national Anglican Churches) or a bit more said that's probably all right."

Yes, the Americans said they were sorry. But sorry for what? Sorry that they had done something wrong, or sorry that other Anglicans couldn't recognize the rightness of what they had done?

(Hint: Gene Robinson is still recognized as an Episcopalian bishop.)

    Louis XIV's arrogance in saying "L'Etat, c'est moi" pales into insignificane to McBrien's not so implicit assertion that "Magesterium, c'est moi".

    I'm sorry you feel that way.

    Repentance without a firm purpose of amendment and of righting the wrong committed is worthless.

    It's one thing to reject the Petrine Authority; it's quite another reject logic.

    What a relief! I was beginning to fear Anglicans were beginning to lose their moral center....oh, wait...it's over here.....oh...it moved again......
