"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Are Orthodox Anglicans Donatists?

You often hear people on the theological left use the term "Donatist" to describe orthodox Anglicans who oppose recent innovations in the Episcopal church. Father John Heidt, canon theolgian of the diocese of Fort Worth, has posted a short essay on his blog that treats this topic. (He co-authored this essay with his son, who is also a priest.) I commend it for your thoughtful consideration.
