Comments: What the Windsor Report said -- an overview

I've had my reservations about the Episcopal Church in the USA as well as certain segments of Mother Church of England for at least 40 years in regard to its 19th Century Latudinarianism. Those who constitute the Leadership of the Episcopal Church USA and their followers,with some obvious exceptions of course, should leave the Anglican Communion and become Unitarian/Universalists. Their ideology is in perfect harmony with their belief system. If they truly have any moral and theological integrity,they should leave as soon as possible. The Unitarian Church is looking for persons such as these to provide the liturgical fullness and ideas to augment their diversity.

Mr. McClain,

As a mainstream Episcopalian who supports and agrees with the leadership of my church I wish to grant you the benefit of the doubt and suggest that perhap you don't realize what a tired, offensive, slur your invitation to the Unitarian Church is.

Let me make this very plain. We Episcopalians have a trinitarian theology. We value the sacraments and the Historic Episcopate. We can say the Creed without crossing our fingers. We are catholic Christians. Your suggestion otherwise is unkind and wrong.

The Anglican Communion is somewhat like the British Commonwealth. The Queen is the respected head but member states are independent, Australians do not tell Canadians what to do.
Nigerians should be busy tiding up their own back yard where AIDS is rampart among their heterosexual congregations. Marital fidelity among their flock should be their concern, not whether the far away ECUSA had consecrated one gay Bishop. John Heaney

Too much is being made of our failure to agree. It is not necessary to agree on issues. What is REQUIRED of us is to love one another.

John Heaney's comment is intolerant and I take issue with him. Nigeria has a remarkable record of ministry to souls and is a rapidly growing Anglican province. His outragous simplistic comment only serves to demonstrate ignorance of the vital ministry in the cure of souls. The Anglican Communion is part of the one Holy catholic Apostolic Church. When one part of the body of Christ(ECUSA)falls into apostacy it causes grief to the rest of the body. Our Nigerian brethren are involved in the Great Commission to Muslim brothers and should be praised rather than denigrated. It is a matter of faith and salvation to life eternal Mr. Heaney.
Take a look at the epistles of Saint Paul and the General Epistle of James and you will get the true picture of what this is all about.
