CANADA GOES FOR FUDGE

From THE MONTREAL GAZETTE:

The Anglican Church of Canada has agreed to disagree when it comes to the fractious debate over gay marriage.

When priests, bishops and laypersons gather Friday for nine days of debate and discussion as part of the church's tri-annual General Synod in Halifax, the approach will be much different than three years ago, Archdeacon Paul Feheley said.

"This synod, we're approaching it not so much from the form of a winner-takes-all resolution," he said. "We're approaching it from a kind of conversational route and hoping by the end of synod, after numerous conversations and meetings . . . that the synod may come up with a statement on where the church is on this matter."

COMMENT: Well, if any country can live comfortably with two complete opposites sitting side by side, it's Canada. I mean they are a bisexual country - or is that bilingual? Same thing really - it's all to do with tongues.

  1. I don’t need to be a Canadian Anglican myself (although I am) to predict just how well this is going to turn out.

  2. ACoC is a great group of people. They will talk about the stupid covenant because Dr. Williams in his current dementia thinks it exists. Then they will appoint a bunch of eminent people to study and push it off into future.

    FWIW

  3. One of many favorite lines from “Malcolm in the Middle”:

    Lois (to the mother, played by Betty White, of the newly discovered second family her father had in Canada): “You must hate me!”

    Betty: “Oh, I don’t hate, dear. I’m Canadian.”

  4. I mean they are a bisexual country – or is that bilingual?

    I thought they were just ambidextrous. Or was that amphibious?
