American Anglican Council and packet lies.

The Rev. Canon Phil Ashey of  the American Anglican Council works hard to make everyone aware just how horrible The Episcopal Church is and how they ought to run from it as fast as possible.  In the AAC "International Update" dated April 23rd (an email post) he swings into a report on his participation in the GAFCON executive committee meeting by dropping the following pack of lies:

"Among the things we often hear from leaders in the Anglican Communion - from the Archbishop of Canterbury, to the Anglican Communion office, to the Anglican Consultative Council - is that our Anglican Communion is one of "autonomous provinces with mutual accountability." The autonomy of provinces like the ones in North America is quite evident, as they reject the truth of the Bible - including rejection of the heart of the Good News, that Jesus Christ is Lord of all people and all lives, including our sexuality, marriage and leadership in the church. In rejecting this Biblical and Anglican Communion teaching through the consecration of partnered gay and lesbian bishops, same sex blessings, and even promoting such heresies as the claim that Jesus Christ died without rising from the dead, they have promoted false gospels in utter and reckless disregard for the rest of the Anglican Communion."

The core item is, " The autonomy of provinces like the ones in North America is quite evident, as they reject the truth of the Bible - including rejection of the heart of the Good News, that Jesus Christ is Lord of all people and all lives, including our sexuality, marriage and leadership in the church."

Now this is not a charge that some of the leadership, or that some individuals, reject the truth of the Bible, but rather that the Province does. 

This is rot, pure and simple. Enough said.

The rest goes quickly in the trash.

  1. Mr Ashey must serve some purpose beyond self-publicity, but what?

    This is such a blatant defamation of TEC that it is hard to not accuse Mr. Ashey of deliberate falsehood - one of the real sins of the schismatic community. "By their fruits...".

  3. The man needs to be called out on lies like this.

    From the articles of his I have read in the past, he usually plays fast and loose with the facts but I have never read such a pack of obvious lies as his latest hatchet piece.

    I think this must be the lowest the AAC can ever hope to sink.
