The redoubtable Father Z has a brilliant suggestion for dissident Catholics liberals:
Since you seem to want to be Anglicans, leave that closet and ask Archbishop Rowan Williams for your own Ordinariate.?
The symmetry of the proposal is striking. Pope Benedict has devised ordinariates for those people who want to maintain an Anglican identity while clinging firmly to the apostolic tradition. The Church of England could open similar opportunities for those who want to claim a Catholic identity while tossing the apostolic tradition out the window.
Let's get this deal done. Do we need to sweeten the terms? We could toss in the LA cathedral and the bas-relief of St. Remby in Milwaukee.
