More "Tolerance" From Left-Wing Anglicans

In America, left-wing Episcopalians are hard at work planning on how to eject from the Church those who disagree with them.

Sounds like the same sort of people are in charge in Canada. Apparently, religous tolerance doesn't extend to Canadian Anglicans (Episcopalians) who want to discuss important issues from a more orthodox point of view -- and so a left-wing bishop has banned a new Anglican newspaper offering a more conservative view on issues of interest to the Church.

One is forced to wonder if the bishop would behave so intolerantly and disrespectfully toward those advocating, say, a radical form of Islam. And the cynical among us might point out that this left-wing bishop himself declines to be bound in some instances by the dictates of Holy Scripture, yet he expects his parishoners to be bound by his dictates. Anyone detect a whiff of spiritual arrogance there?

Apparently, the more orthodox Anglican newspaper that the bishop has tried to ban is receiving overwhelming support. It expected about 600 subscribers, but has instead gotten 5,000.

Is this what the left-wing bishop finds so threatening?
