Comments: General Synod: Saturday morning roundup

For what it's worth, the Church Society report states "There were a number of questions about Wycliffe Hall theological college and Elaine Storkey took another swipe at the college under the guise of a question. Philip Giddings, in response gave a positive plug for the college noting a remark that it was “full of students” and had “united staff”."

"United staff"?

"The Times has learnt."

Oh Ruth, we Yanks have "learnt" the hard way, that when someone says "have learnt" (or its cognates *g*), they are SPINNING, wildly (See re George W. Bush and "The 16 Words" of his 2003 State of the Union Speech)

I don't doubt, that the usual Sky-is-Falling (w/ Icky Girl Cooties) crowd is trying to STOP the consecration of God's bishops-made-female. But the contention that these squeaky wheels are a significant percentage of "church faithful" {snort} is a line I ain't buying.

Lord have mercy!

Yes, "The Times has learnt"....AKA "someone with an axe to grind has said something to a reporter..."
