under the (wrong) influence

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 25, 2003

Richard Major of The Tablet gives a very lucid account of the woes of the Anglican Church.

The world's 79 million Anglicans are held together by the principle of intercommunion between 38 provinces, each of which has its own autonomous primate. The Archbishop of Canterbury presides over the Anglican Communion as its primus inter pares but no more. The ultimate sanction against a wayward province is for other provinces to declare it "out of communion", or more subtly, "in a state of impaired communion".

Well put. The Massachusetts Catholic bishops might learn from the Massachusetts highway patrol next time the senior senator is pulled over in a state of impaired communion
