The Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMiA), a clear intruder agent from another Province, has written a statement concerning the Primate's Meeting. It is unclear if they have read the same document that any of us can download from the Anglican Communion website.
After generally commending the call that the Episcopal Church mind its manners and reform its ways, the AMiA statement begins to wander:
"We believe it should always be remembered that while much of the focus of this recent primates' meeting has revolved around The Episcopal Church's violations of the 1998 Lambeth Resolution I.10 concerning human sexuality, those violations have, in fact, been only a painful symptom of the much greater crisis of faith and leadership that presently exists within TEC and the many questions that TEC has raised in recent years regarding the authority of the Scriptures as our "standard and ultimate rule of faith." [Lambeth Conference of 1888 – Resolution 11] "
Then, in a wonderful example of textual hubris, the AMiA writes this:
"Given the continued crisis in Anglicanism, especially in the U.S., we are thankful that the primates unequivocally rejected The Episcopal Church's request to end all interventions in North America until there is deep and genuine change in The Episcopal Church. [See Communiqué, paragraphs 32 and 34.] This decision provides much needed protection for those who can no longer accept the spiritual authority of TEC."
Paragraphs 32 and 34, along with 31, 33, and 34 are descriptive of various positions and concerns and do not represent the view of the whole Primate's meeting at all.
And then AMiA wanders into an alternative universe. Their statement says,
"We are grateful that the primates see the Anglican Mission as a part of the larger family while recognizing our mission and ministry as a missionary movement of the Province of Rwanda."
No citation is give for this, because no citation is there.
The ONLY citation regarding AMiA is this "Although there are peculiar difficulties associated with AMiA and CANA, the Pastoral Council should negotiate with them and the Primates currently ministering to them to find a place for them within these provisions. we believe that with goodwil this may be possible." That particular paragraph of the "Key Recommendations of the Primates" is a sign of just how tired and foolish the Primates could be. In any event, the "particular difficulties associated with AMiA" is hardly a supportive statement regarding AMiA. Indeed those difficulties include but are not limited to the establishment of alternative churches in the Province that is the Episcopal Church.
And then there is the clincher. Here at least AMiA is clear. It is having none of it - the it being "he Pastoral Council should negotiate with them and the Primates currently ministering to them to find a place for them within these provisions." AMiA says,
"Given our canonical standing within the Province of Rwanda, the Anglican Mission is in no way expected to be placed under the oversight or authority of either the proposed Pastoral Council or a Primatial Vicar."
AMiA did not even make it into the record with its full name.
Can they read?
