Church of England Synod opens today with the proposed Anglican Covenant on the table. The Minister of Magic, sorry, Archbishop of Canterbury, has this to say about it.
The Covenant text itself represents work done by theologians of similarly diverse views, including several from North America. It does not invent a new orthodoxy or a new system of doctrinal policing or a centralised authority, quite explicitly declaring that it does not seek to override any province's canonical autonomy. After such a number of discussions and revisions, it is dispiriting to see the Covenant still being represented as a tool of exclusion and tyranny."
It is sad to see such a bright fellow reveal himself to be delusional. This blind trust in the covenant designers and promoters reminds me of 1938 and a certain Neville Chamberlain...
My good friends, this is the second time there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Now I recommend you go home, and sleep quietly in your beds.
Ah yes, sleep quietly in your beds Anglicans around the world... (but only with members of the opposite sex)
