I attend a church in the Sydney Anglican diocese and there's much I disagree with in their theology. But I love my congregation and, to me, that's more important.

If you don't like it, don't read it - this 'slave to the tradition' is a long-standing difference between David and me and the origin of the need to invoke the incompleteness theorem. However, yes, you always have to pop outside your own system to see the flaws inside it, but does this also include using a name change from Rowett to Barker?
