did you notice Lambeth 1.10 has been fully reinforced by the synod and Tanzania - giving it more authority than it had just a few weeks ago?
"Fully reinforced"? It seemed to me to be a rather lackluster level of support in GS. It was sort of a we're-not-yet-ready-to-ditch-it response.

some simple math for you :--
0+0 = 0
ruidh - remember the chairman is the same ABC who was in Tanzania......
Ah, yeah, the chairman: the one who teaches the collective line and refuses to give his personal view (as in his blocking comments to the excitable signs and wonders reporter in Tanzania), and now finds the collective line undergoing some kind of movement underneath back on home turf.
Could be interesting if he ends up having to threaten to exclude himself from the instruments of communion. I look forward to the subtlety of the argument.
Laurence: you think 0+0 is "simple math" but at Cambridge we learned it is actually much more complex than many realise.....
But you are right in a way: TEC got zero from Tanzania - apart from a foreign-appointed bishop to give oversight to faithful Anglicans....
Thanks for the principia mathematic Oxbridge trump card, NP. We are not worthy, we are not worthy.....
You're welcome, Mynster - sometimes one feels liberals think all "conservatives" are stupid so one cannot help making the sort of silly point I made!
Anyway, for those like Laurence who thought my view on Lambeth 1:10 above was maybe a little stupid, I recommend a read of the latest letter from the dear old ABC to his Primate mates....
Because the ABC is not stupid, it seems that (despite his past musings as an academic) he is giving Lambeth 1:10 a lot of authority and also not willing to tolerate delays (eg to 2009) or fudged answers - because he wants to save the AC and sees it is not worth sacrificing it for VGR et al
