Comments: ENS reports on CANA

So what, exactly, is the nature of the "Affiliation" which the CANA website indicates the Archbishop of Canterbury to have with it, on its website? See the link at

Is this one more instance of people taking off-the-cuff comments from the Archbishop as official approbation?

"In April 2002, [+Akinola] met with the American bishops at Camp Allen in Texas for further conversations concerning his plan for the chaplaincy."

While I'm not easily given to superstition, may I add that the above precedent does nothing to assuage my *deep misgivings* about the coming meeting (again w/ foreign bishops!) at Camp Allen? ;-/

So - what will the ABC have to say after the 20th, when it looks like for sure Martyn will get his pointy hat and purple shirt? Let me guess.

"Whilst recent events in Nigeria are not precisely in the spirit of Windsor, I am assured that nothing untoward will occur. Should Bishop Minns be scolded by the Bishop of Virginia, I shall send some Bishops from The Old Country to counsel with him. Meanwhilst, I will rebury my head and mitre in the nice quiet sand..."

This is blog reporting at its best.
The story “breaks” here on TA and Simon is covering all the angles.
Comment is difficult because we are watching the news unfold before us.

Well done TA – good research Simon.

Yes - a rather belated thank you from me, also, as I am a recent reader. I tell friends that this is the place to find that latest and most comprehensive news about news Anglican.
