"FIF/NA hopes that Fr. Moyer’s election and consecration will have no impact on their [i.e. the Primates'] deliberations"

I'm absolutely sure they hope that! Otherwise it might be taken as an utter lack of respect on FIF/NA's part for the structures of the Anglican Communion. Which of course it isn't. Is it?!

"We regret however that those responsible did not see fit to consult the bishops of Forward in Faith around the world before reaching their decision."

The *bishops of Forward in Faith*? What does _that_ mean?

Even assuming it just means the (canonical Anglican) bishops *in* Forward in Faith, it still _presumes_ that these bishops, individually or collectively, could have some kind of beyond-mere-respect-of-orders *authority* outside their individual dioceses.

The creeping _Curia_-ity of so-called "orthodox Anglicans" gets *creepier* by the day . . .
