anthills–Episcopalians & the Anglican Communion

-L.CREW VOWS TO CAUSE STRAIN ON ANGLICAN COMMUNION

As long as I appear to be going after Newark, here is the quote of the day from the last paragraph of Louie Crew’s post-General Convention blog post:

“Indeed, my ‘manner of life presents a challenge to the wider church,’ and I pledge to Jesus to do all I can to bring such ‘further strains on communion.’”

No comment is necessary, except to mention to newcomers that Louie is the founder of Integrity (the premier gay advocacy group in the Episcopal Church), a member of the Executive Council of the church, and Co-chair of the Nominating Committee for a bishop for the diocese of Newark.

Further background will let everyone see the aim of Crew’s words. The committee nominated a partnered gay man for bishop a day after the Archbishop of Canterbury wrote that such actions had to have serious consequences (see NEWARK STICKS FINGER IN ARCHBISHOP’S EYE).

The nomination comes less than a week after the General Convention passed, under brutal pressure from the Presiding Bishop, a call to exercise “restraint” in approving bishops whose “manner of life” would cause additional “strain” on the Anglican Communion.
