Reactions to ECUSA bishops

Statements have been issued by:
American Anglican Council House of Bishops Approves Inadequate Oversight Plan (this is quite a detailed analysis)
FiFNA FIFNA President declares it unacceptable (no idea why this is not yet on FiFNA website)
Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and Parishes HOB Oversight Plan will take ‘extraordinary new levels of trust’ (this is a bit less negative than the AAC commentary)
The Diocese of Pittsburgh has published this note.

Kendall Harmon has published Key Section of the Saturday Afternoon Version of the Plan which shows that at an earlier stage it looked less complicated.

There are lots of individual opinions floating around, which I have not had time to digest yet.

I wonder when we’ll find out who was there and how they voted, esp. the IRD-AAC-NACDP bishops.

The revisionists, like all liberals, are all about one thing: power. They are hell-bent (literally!) on grabbing and holding power. Those who oppose them are bullied and even outright suppressed.
This plan is nothing more than windows dressing, sent to pander to the media and other gullible accomplices, that these people are “caring” and looking for “reconciliation.” What I see is more fertilizer than is being spread on Iowa cornfields this day.
If the revisionist bishops really want reconciliation, let them allow for the Primates’ call for adequate episcopal oversight where orthodox parishes can have the spiritual and canonical coverage of bishops less prone to abuse of power.
Of course if the revisionists REALLY wanted reconciliation, they would repent of allowing an adulterer to become a bishop, remove him from his position until he likewise repents, and take steps to make sure this never happens again.
And one more thing: the appeal to the canons and constitution of the Church by revisionists is truly laughable, since they essentially tore the thing up at the last General Convention.
