Thinking it over....


The ACC is on a break (5:45 EDT). The process of dealing with the Anglican Covenant resolution is taking a bit of time. It appears that the afternoon Press Briefing is either on hold or out altogether. People are thinking. Some of them are thinking hard. But, what, dear friends, are they thinking? More later.

  1. Wouldn't thinking be a first for this group at this time and in this place let alone thinking hard. Could you smell rubber burning?

  3. I've been gone a bit... new job. I am not clear on what has happend. Is it that we are no longer ACC or?

    If so, well too bad but on we go.

    Can someone clarify for me, the confuzzled one?

  4. Cany, pardon me if I get any of this mess wrong, but my reading is that something confusing happened at the ACI meeting, and the confusion was led by the ABofC and the Chair themselves. Bottom line -- the RCD of the AC is on hold for a while longer, section IV (the "teeth of punishment" clause) has been sent back to a new committee to rewrite, and the ACI and their minions are apoplectic that the vaunted Covenant has been pretty much defeated by all appearances.

    In other words, more time was bought, the ball was punted, etc., etc., in true Anglican fashion.

    Please forgive me as well for gloating (very unChristian, I know) but I take a small measure of delight at the ACI's statement about this muddle, seeing as how the orthodite's own well-honed tactics of confusing the debate, last minute amendments and resolutions, and demanding a quick vote, which they have previously put to such good effect in passing the Windsor agreement, Lambeth 1.10, BO33, etc., was used AGAINST them and they are fit to be tied, crying "foul!" and "unfair!" to the heavens, with not the slightest awareness of their hypocrisy.

    I sin, I confess, I can't help it! LOL
