Bishop Duncan invited the bishops of the so-called Anglican catholic Church to attend the launch of ACNA. he replied in part… “In summary, then, we see in the ACNA the fundamental alterations in traditional Anglican faith, worship, order, and practice that led to the formation of our own Continuing Church in 1978. We would be glad to establish conversations with your ecclesial body in hopes that you may, having freed yourselves of the Episcopal Church, continue further on the same path by decisively breaking from a corrupt Anglican Communion and by returning to the central tradition of Christendom in all… Read more »

Mr. Duncan isn’t a liberal RIW he quite simply wants his own kingdom. He’ll do or say anything and use anyone or anything to get the title “your grace.” He openly licensed a gay, partnered priest in the diocese of Pittsburgh and even recommended to a gay deacon seeking ordination to apply to another diocese since Duncan felt he was called to serve in the priesthood.

Not only were orphans abused, the Vatican itself has blood money as a proportion of the Irish governments annual payments to support each orphan was skimmed to the vatican. In the meantime, literally thousands of incidents of abuse (including sexual) occurred within hundreds of institutions for decades. One example I… Read more »

“having freed yourselves of the Episcopal Church” My, my, such language. “Freed yourselves”. Really now. A bit much, but I suppose having to get along with people who disagree with you is a bit of an “oppressive burden”, at least for you, and when they won’t put up with your tantrums, I guess separating yourself from them CAN feel like “freedom”. Can we expect a rousing chorus of “By the Rising of the Moon”, or is that suspiciously Wiccan to you? “a corrupt Anglican Communion” Oh, come on now, Your Grace. This is over the top even for you! It… Read more »
