they said....

Okay, okay. People are saying, "Huh? What'd they say?" Even life-long speakers of Anglikaans need this translated, judging from my email box. As a public service therefore, stepping nobly into the breech:

They said,

(a) we all feel much better now. (b) the bible study was really cool. (c) we have an official position on this gay stuff and it ISN'T what you guys did. (d) we had better study some more (e) you can't just launch off and do this stuff and leave the rest of us swallowing your sand (f) naughty, naughty bishops who cross diocesan lines. no matter what. ecclesiastical boundaries trump sacraments, commandments and moral theology every time. (g) some of youse guys need to allow yer orthodox to have visiting bishops who believe in the resurrection and don't believe in sodomy, like we said at lambeth 1998 in that resolution you've been ignoring ever since. (h) in time honored anglican fashion we want a committee to study this. it needs to report on what canterbury can do about this stuff next time somebody decides to consecrate an aardvark or a potted plant to the episcopate. it has a year to tell us what fudge/dodge/evasion it comes up with (h) hey, about this gay bishop. this is a club-breaker. yer gonna lose yer cocktail-cart privileges in some places if you do it (g) and a lot of us aren't gonna think he's really a bishop (h) and if you consecrate him, THEN we REALLY, REALLY, TWOOOLEY will be at a crisis point. then. when you do that. yup. you thought it was bad when gay marriages were tolerated and ecusa wouldn't say jesus is lord, but just you wait...
