Does this mean that ‘Margaret’ only approves of disciplinary action for those who break the rules of which she approves. I don’t think that I want to play Monopoly with her then.

It’s call Spring Cleaning, Margaret.

Just in time for Easter, TEC is being *resurrected*: this is the Lord’s work, and it is MARVELOUS in our eyes!

I don’t know why the so-called “orthodox” continue to argue that the deposing of JDS, et al., demonstrates that TEC doesn’t really care for “diversity.” It seems clear to me that when a Bishop of one Church becomes a Bishop in another Church, he perforce has abandoned his position in the first. It’s pretty much the same in any field, in fact; when a person quits a job, he can’t continue to claim the position (and the benefits). IOW, it has nothing to do with “diversity” or not; it’s a simple matter of classification (and, now that I think of… Read more »

Here come the lawyers! 815 looking to score some cash…now there’s a shocker.

How very sad. How utterly pathetic.

The con-evos looking to walk away with property that doesn’t belong to them.

How very typical. How utterly commonplace.

Okay–I think I said this before, but we rely on some form of non-anonymity for us to take responsibility for what we say. The NPs of this blog (and I think she’s posting elsewhere on at least one other liberal one, under a new name), on whatever side, should take note.

Just read on Stand Firm how Bishop Schofield is pleased to be in the same category as the theologian James Packer.

Doctor Packer’s whole ministry and writings have been the denial of the following:

1) the absolute necessity and divine origin of episcopacy.
2) Baptismal regeneration
3) the real presence and Eucharistic sacrifice.

He has unequivocally promoted the heresies of Calvin, which he correctly believes are in the 39 articles of religion.

How can an Anglo-Catholic Bishiop support such a theologian?
