I wonder if at the next gathering ECUSA will have to issue the following apology: "Resolved, the House of _____ concurring, That the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church join the House of Bishops’ March 2005 “Covenant Statement” in expressing “our own deep regret for the pain that others have experienced with respect to our actions at the General Convention of 2003 and we offer our sincerest apology and repentance for having breached the bonds of affection in the Anglican Communion by any failure to consult adequately with our Anglican partners before taking these actions.”

Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring, that the 76th General Convention of The Episcopal Church, mindful of “the repentance, forgiveness, and reconciliation enjoined on us by Christ” (Windsor Report, paragraph 134), express its regret for breaching the proper constraints of the bonds of affection in the events surrounding the General Convention of 2006 and the consequences which followed; offer its sincerest apology to those within our Anglican Communion who are offended by our failure to accord sufficient importance to the impact of our actions on our church and other parts of the Communion -- and the Roman Catholic Church, and the prospects for Christian unity; and ask forgiveness as we seek to live into deeper levels of communion one with another.

Wow ! Wonderful news !

Now the self appointed 'conservatives', 'tradtionalists' and 'orthordox' (I crease up at orthordox! :-) )
really have something to think about !

They really have to decide if being female is worse than being queer ! And if early reactions on Titus etc., are anything to go by, they are happy to out themselves as ss --seriouslysexist. I have even read , more than once, that being female is 'a lifestyle unacceptable to the majority of the AC, 'Global South'(whatever that may be),and 'the orthordox'.

what really gets my funny bone going about 'orthordox' is the use of that word by ACC, Mainstream , so-called ACNetwork. These conglomerates of Zwinglians, Anglo-Papalists, anti-women and por-ordination of women---- the only thing they have in common, and can agree on is being anti-lgbt. A funny , limited faith that (to my mind).

The election of Bishop Schori completely undermines this unholy alliance ( read 'temporary truce')

Before we apologize to Rome, they will have to apologize to us for declaring Anglican orders invalid, and void that declaration. I'm not holding my breath.
