Well, well, well, well ... at long last RW speaks at some length fairly clearly in public, about critical thinking and critical scholarship, what sounds like 'global' community across our differences (instead of that lovely 'restraint' which is held hostage to our differences which has been his mainstay so recently for so long, and gasp, empathy.

Okay then.

Wish he'd put this foot forward early on, say, in nourishing the considerations that eventually became the Windsor Report? In explaining the reports and gatherings that followed the WR?

Really, really, hard to figure, is this RW. If now these are the mix of virtue that will see us all through, together - what happened to the sorts of traditionalism that indeed have already foreclosed those vexing and difficult sexuality and modern life issues? Those closed-settled-unable to be further questioned beliefs and traditions as church life and cultural idols among other idols to whom we are supposed to be so dutifully bowing down as orthodox Anglicans?

What happened to the lockstep conformity which has the existence of Anglican differences subordinated to the most extremely conservative or traditional among us?

What happened to real empathy taking a number and waiting in that very, very long line, to be someday called to the heavenly windows where physical safety, equal citizenship, and human thriving in togetherness are so often said to be recognized and validated?

Which RW is the real deal?

This present one who lays out a customary Anglican big tent vision? Or the other one who is in such a rush to keep any mentions of change hushed up and demonized?

Rowan thy middle name is Janus?
