WILL GENERAL SYNOD BUY PORK PIES?

From THE CHURCH TIMES:

A senior cleric of the Anglican Church of Canada has identified inaccuracies in Lorna Ashworth’s BRIEFING PAPER for her private member’s motion, which will come before the General Synod next Wednesday. Similar concerns are coming from the Episcopal Church in the United States. Mrs Ashworth’s motion will urge the Synod to “express the desire that the Church of England be in communion with the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA)."

Canon Alan Perry, a lecturer in ecclesiastical polity and former Prolocutor of the Province of Canada, rebuts allegations on clergy and property in her paper.

The Revd Brian Lewis, a Synod member from Chelmsford diocese, circulated the note to all members on Monday.

I have posted Canon Perry's rebuttal in full at FOOTNOTES.

  1. AC-NA is demonstrating precisely why if CoE has a collective brain it won’t pass the private idiot’s bill. These people have as once was said of Bill Clinton, a difficult relationship with the truth. There is nothing including outright slander they will avoid in pursuit of dominance.

    FWIW

  2. ACNA and its supporters once again demonstrate that — while they call those with whom they disagree scriptural “revisionists” — it is they themselves who have bowdlerized the Bible by excising Exodus 20:16.
