The Telegraph Poll.... the list gets closer to the end...

The Telegraph has been listing, ten at a time, the top 50 Anglican influential folk. Posted today, # 21 to 11. Next the top ten! (What's the prize for #1? Who is #2?)

Here is the list today:

11. Tom Wright - Bishop of Durham
12. Drexel Gomez - Archbishop of West Indies
13. Kenneth Kearon - secetary-general of Anglican Consultative Council
14. Gregory Cameron - Deputy secretary-general of Anglican Consultative Council.
15. Lord Carey - former Archbishop of Canterbury
16. Martyn Minns - missionary leader of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America
17. Philip Aspinall - Primate of Australia
18. Bonnie Anderson - Chair, the Episcopal Church House of Deputies
19. Marc Andrus - Bishop of California
20. Jenny Te Paa - Maori, New Zealand

The Telegraph got some of this screwed up. Given the titles given to each of these folk, Martyn Minns is Bishop as well as "missinary leader." (I don't like it but he is.) Bonnie Anderson is President of the House of Deputies and Jenny Te Paa is Dean.

Here is the ongoing rate card from the past days:

21 Michael Ingham - Bishop of New Westminster
22. Nicky Gumbel . - founder of Alpha course, vicar of HTB
23 Giles Fraser - vicar of Putney

Running tabs: M 31, F 9; US 10, Canada 2, UK 17, other 10; Bps 14. KbyMP (known by Mark of Preludium) 21. Knowing how hard it is to count some.... I put Ephraim in Canada and Marily McCord Adams in England.. that is where they both work.

  1. So, are we pretty sure that ++ABC, ++ABY and ++USA are in the top ten, along with a few GAFCON characters?

    Maybe even +New Hampshire?


OK... Comments, gripes, etc welcomed, but with some cautions and one rule:
Cautions: Calling people fools, idiots, etc, will be reason to bounce your comment. Keeping in mind that in the struggles it is difficult enough to try to respect opponents, we should at least try.
