Anglicans after Kigali: Facing the Inevitable

The call from the “Global South” Anglican primates for a separate chuch for conservatives in the Episcopal Church is not to everyone’s taste, but it is inevitable.

It’s taken a lot of “Anglican Fudge”–to say nothing about institutional loyalty–for conservatives to remain in the Episcopal Church as long as they have. But the time has come to face reality, as we noted last summer in our piece The Communion of One. The Global South primates have done just that. It is not as easy as it looks to an outsider–and will be even more complicated if it’s applied to a state church like the Church of England–but there’s no other way out.

And the liberals? Since they have made church pointless, perhaps they should go out and celebrate the Fall Equinox with their pagan friends.
