“TRADITIONALISTS in the Church of England are preparing for a possible breakaway over women bishops by taking legal advice on whether they could claim property worth more than £1 billion.”

Anyone wanna guess whether these (so-called) “traditionalists” in the CofE are comparing notes w/ American (so-called) “traditionalists” in TEC? (Following a translated-into-Brit-legalese copy of the “Chapman Memo” for example?)

What option do we have now with the rest of the church voting itself to apostasy ? I can only hope that Synod actually think of younger more traditionally minded people such as myself when they remember their duty to provide some form of structure for us.

Surely it is not that the traditionalists are wanting to grap property. They are merely trying to keep the poperty that is already theirs and that apostates are determined to wrench from them

Edward, I’m reminded of the old lawyer’s advice:

“When the facts are on your side, argue the facts.
When the law is on your side, argue the law.
When neither are on your side, POUND THE TABLE.”

In an ecclesial situation, is the equivalent of *pounding the table* to charge “apostasy”???

Someone (?GL Prestige?) once summed up Cyril and Nestorius’ little set-to in C5 as ‘Anathema and counter-anathema.’ Plus ça change….
