Comments: 'Disciplining ECUSA'

I doubt very much that the Primates have authority to 'expel' the Episcopal Church of the US from anything. The Anglican Communion id a loose fellowship of autonomous fellowships in communuion with the See of Canterbury. Perhaps the Archbishop of Canterbury could annul that connection. Some of the Primates may decline to meet with some Americans in an official capacity - but they cannot bind all the other primates. But the gathering of primates cannot remove our fellowship with out sisters and brothers in the United States, be it in law or in spirit.
