Here is a note from an infrequent but known contributor to this blog in reference to provisions for the Province of the Southern Cone to "receive" a foreign diocese. Thomas is well versed in matters concerning the PSC, having been a member of the clergy there.
"As I pointed out so many times--
1. There is no canonical nor constitutional provision for the Province of the Southern Cone to receive, accept, or "host" a "foreign" diocese. (Check the C&C translated and available on line courtesy of the Diocese of Fort Worth).
2. The Executive Council of the Province of the Southern Cone has voted to receive the bishop and clergy into their midst "for pastoral reasons"... NOT the institution of the Diocese, as even in the Southern Cone they realize they can't do it.
(Note: A constitutional amendment needs to be approved by the Provincial Synod [I believe it requires 3/4 majority], then be submitted to the ACC for review, and then be approved by each one of the Dioceses. If one of the Dioceses does not approve the amendment, it fails.)
So, whatever the brothers and sisters that decided to remove themselves out the Diocese of Pittsburgh may say, the Southern Cone has not, and cannot receive "a Diocese." Claiming otherwise is either disingenuous or a flat lie. So much so for the "100% Proof Biblical purity" with which they pretend to shroud themselves.
And they, as well as the Presiding Bishop of the Southern Cone, should be called to task on the issue.
But then they don't really need it do they? No one is staying in that Province anyway, a province whose actions are bound to the increasingly absurd stance of its Primate. The whole thing is simply a way station on trip to bountiful... the land of the truly "orthodox" North American Province recognized by Provinces that care not a fig about relationships with those awful people to the North, including the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The thing is, these Primates do not represent the full Global South or for that matter the "orthodox" Anglicans.
The whole mess is a house of cards.
Still, as Lionel Deimel says, "I cannot say what will become of Robert Duncan’s dreams of glory. If they are realized, however, the Anglican Communion will, in essence, be destroyed."
