Bishops: USA

Pierre Whalon wrote another essay at AO on Thought, Love, and Bishops. This discusses at length some of the theological issues arising from the New Hampshire consecration. Recommended reading and not susceptible to short quotes here.

It has drawn comment from conservatives, see here, and also here.

Meanwhile John Heidt, who was once in Cheltenham but is now in Fort Worth, wrote this open letter to the American bishops, which analyses the reasons for conservatives among them not participating fully in the ECUSA House of Bishops meetings. It also is recommended reading.

Again conservative comment can be found here.

Notice the latest buzz word, whim:
“And they want this ministry guaranteed rather than
dependent upon the whim of individual diocesan bishops,. . .”
(7th paragraph, 4th sentence)

Irony lamp on:
Remind me never to depend on the whim of a bishop.
Irony lamp off.

Paraphrasing Blanche DuBois: “I have always relied on the whims of bishops.”
