"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

Bishop Iker on the "Deposition" of Bishop Duncan Today

In spite of the sham deposition of Bishop Robert Duncan by the TEC House of Bishops, he remains the formidable leader of traditional Episcopalians and loyal Anglicans in North America. Both in his role as Moderator of the Anglican Communion Network and as the lead Bishop in the Common Cause Partnership, Bishop Duncan continues to have the respect of a majority of the Primates and bishops of the entire Anglican Communion, including the Archbishop of Canterbury. In an effort to silence him, this action has only given him greater credibility as the leader of the realignment movement.

The Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker, Bishop of Fort Worth

While long after my earthly expiration date, in a century +Duncan will be remembered as a lesser saint, while +Kate will be remembered as one of the more odious and destructive heretics.

I wonder if Bp. Iker remembers the 10 commandments....and thou shalt not steal. He is welcomed to leave TEC and believe what he may, but please leave our "stuff" behind....

God's sanctuaries are "stuff" that belongs to heretics? I think not.

It is interesting to remember that you are currently an Episcopalian as a member of a church within the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. I would refrain from calling names until your church affiliation changes if I were you. It sounds as if you are calling yourself a heretic (because you are currently an Episcopalian). You have become the thing that you despise. I also find it odd that so many would want to be confirmed into the Episcopal Church from Saint Vincent's when the Bishop came a few weeks ago. After all,according to the prayer book (which is authorized for use in the Episcopal Church and has no other authorized use stated on the cover page), confirmation is about becoming a full adult member of the Episcopal Church, not the Southern Cone or some other province. I would have thought it would have been more appropriate for the Boshop to cease confirmations until after the diocesan convention in November. After all, those confirmations will be duly recorded as confirmations into membership of the Episcopal Church, because they occurred when Saint Vincent's was still a part of it.

You are very wrong. Read the confirmation service. No where in there does it say anything about the Episcopal Church. These folks are confirming their baptismal vows as members of the one holy catholic and apostolic church. Something of which TEC has left far behind.
