Basically..... their African "dupes" have served their purpose and now with episcopal succession and " valid" Anglican orders, they can reconstruct an "orthodox" church to their designs.Sadly orthodox seems to mean anti-gay.

How much did the Rwandan bishops receive? That would be interesting to find out. I think the establishment of AMIA did not come cheap. However , who would dare accuse them of simony?

How on earth will all these different schismatic ex-Anglican factions in North america ever find consensus among themselves? They all seem to have different agendas - apart from their disaffection from their former constituent Churches.

If we think that Archbishop Rowan Williams has problems with trying to reconcile the Anglican Communion Provinces; this will seem small beer to what 'Archbishop' Robert Duncan will be seen to have taken on when the various GAFCON-sponsored conservative cliques assemble under his banner in North America. Maybe the ordination of women will provide the first hurdle? And then there will be the problem of who is leading whom.

I wonder if they'll think up their own Covenant?

ABC badly needs an enforcer.

Malcolm Tucker may be fictional, but Alastair Campbell might be up for it...
