Comments: Lambeth vigil - 15 October

It is truly grievous that the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church USA should be adopting the issue of homosexuality as the new litmus test of 'orthodoxy'. Jesus' harsh words about hypocrisy should be making our ears burn, for as Bishop-elect Robinson remarked in an interview shortly before the Minneapolis convention, "The real 'H' word hovering here is Honesty."
Check out Matthew 23:23- We are neglecting far 'weightier matters' as we tear ourselves apart over this and simultaneously swallow the camels of economic injustice and our abuse of creation, to name only two.
