"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

"Episcopal Majority" Group Meets with PB Schori's Blessing

According to the ENS story on this meeting, in which Bishop Bruno of Los Angeles played a leading part (he is implacably opposed to letting orthodox parishes leave with their property), the members of "Episcopal Majority" are "waging reconciliation."

"We need to wage reconciliation, to constantly work for dialogue and conversation, reaching out and touching others who are different than us," Bishop Jon Bruno of Los Angeles told the gathering during a keynote address frequently interrupted by appreciative applause. Bruno quoted Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, on the eve of her investiture: "At our meeting at Kanuga, Katharine told a story about how whales come to the breeding ground, singing one song, but they go away singing a new and different song because they've listened and heard what each other sang."

Odd, but the tone of the article seems to indicate that they are dedicated to rejecting the proposed Anglican Covenant and thwarting the activities of the Network and other "reasserting" Anglicans, rather than reconciling the orthodox to the national leadership. I am reminded of what was once said of the ancient Romans: "They would create a desert, and call it 'peace'."

I suppose I should be relieved that they intend to eradicate us by "dialoging" and litigating us to extinction, rather than razing our cities and strewing the land with salt. ... At least, I don't think there will be salt!

Fear not. What can the salt do if it has lost its saltiness - as you say?
