My apologies everybody. My original commentary on the Synod ACNA vote was completely wrongheaded. Unfortunately the initial reports on the proceedings were posted by US right wing sites and they spun in to look like their side had won. They haven't. Okay, the truth was in the detail but in my excitement at being a prophet of doom before everybody else I didn't read the small print. I unreservedly apologise to my brothers and sisters on General Synod who did in fact show themselves to be eminently sensible and, to be honest, boringly Christian about the motion put before them.
Fortunately for me, Grandmère Mimi was paying attention:
Which, of course, she usually is. But every clock has to be right at least once a day (or twice a day, in Mimi's case, as she's one of those old fashioned clocks that need winding up regularly).
However, I was right about one thing. I am still the most embarrassed person in the world at this moment in time. But it's because of my own stupidity rather than somebody else's.
