I don't know why any of us should bother to try to figure out what is going on. It seems Wikipedia has the answer. Thanks to Susan Russell and a friend for this:
From the Anglican Communion Network page on Wikipedia:
"After the ECUSA's 2006 General Convention, some Bishops, both within the Church and from the Anglican Communion, suggested that the Anglican Communion Network should be recognized by the Archbishop of Canterbury and by the Anglican Consultative Council as the orthodox expression of Anglicanism within the United States. Although liberals continue to argue that ECUSA remains true to the historic faith of the See of Canterbury, the ACM is expected to replace ECUSA after the next Lambeth conference in 2008, following on from full recognition by the Global South Primates conference in 2006."
Well, damn! And I thought it wasn't a done deal!
All of this would be funny, except that it isn't.
