Returning, for a moment, to 'business as usual in the Anglican Communion', The Episcopal Church (USA) has continued to act in ways that show its true colours (or should that be colors?) to anyone with 'ears to hear'. Back in February, the Diocese of North Michigan elected as their next Bishop a man who had also received "lay ordination" as a Buddhist.
In England that might still cause a few problems. In the TEC, apparently, it does not - or at least, not enough to make the powers that be in that organization think twice. Just to bring us up to speed, I've copied here various links provided by the Stand Firm website.
The sheer lack of real excitement about this over here is surely a sign that the frog of our own sensitivity to destructive heresy has long since been boiled, served up with garlic and washed down (probably with a nice Chianti).
As predicted, there were many more blog posts on the Buddhist bishop election this past week.
