Thinking Anglicans

Windsor/Primates – various views

A number of comment items that should really have been posted here earlier.

Last Saturday in the Telegraph the regular Christopher Howse column was titled Wilder shores of Anglicanism.
Several recent articles in GetReligion are of interest, in particular Reporting vs. fear-mongering
and earlier items can be found via the Anglicanism archive page.

Reverting to the earlier report here concerning Henry Orombi, his press conference statement was thought worthy of reproducing in full on the NACDAP site and Peter Toon commented that Ugandan Archbishop commended the Communiqué but apparently had not carefully read it!

From the other end of the spectrum, Mark Harris has a blog on which he wrote about Why the so called crisis in the Anglican Communion is no crisis of mine.

And finally, this report, via Confessing Evangelical of what Private Eye had to say about Schismatic liturgy.

Simon, I’ve been collaborating with the folks on the Stand Firm website to compile a list of responses to the Primates’ Communique. Here’s the link. If you discover responses I’m missing, please let me know.

J.C.,

It’s a deal – as long as your side will move beyond euphemisms too. For starters, I suggest “tohellwithscripture.com”.

I have to admit, being a supporter of the blessing of same sex unions, that I am beginning to get a little tired and frustrated with the accusation being thrown at me that I am ignoring the scriptures when I take this position. At no point have I ignored the scriptures. I have studied them, and prayed and meditated since the early “80’s. I don’t come to the position lightly. I do not ignore the scriptures and I continue to study them daily. The more I study them more convinced I become that we need to move to full inclusion,… Read more »

If I’m gonna speak for “my side”, Greg, then know that I “read, mark, learn and inwardly digest” the Bible EVERY DAY. Now, if you want to send me to hell (um: don’t think that’s in *your* job description, last I checked!), then maybe you’re right: I’ll take the Good Book with me. Like AM Nicklin above, I don’t know why my *differing interpretation* of scripture from yours should get me these insults, that I don’t love God’s Word. I prayerfully read it, and find my sexual orientation affirmed (All my sins, however? Not so much). We have different (subjective)… Read more »
