Carol Platt Liebau: Not Quite!

Not Quite!

This misleading LA Times story suggests that American Episcopal bishops are united in rejecting the very reasonable requests made of the Episcopal Church of the USA (ECUSA) by the worldwide Anglican communion.

Hardly. Conservative bishops -- who are ignored by the Times in this article -- do not want to reject the requests made by the Communion, thereby precipitating a schism between the American church and the rest of Church worldwide.

What's more, the claims by the liberal bishops (although they're never explicitly identified as such in this piece) that theological diversity is tolerated in the American church has become something of a joke. Either the dissenting, conservative congregations agree to do it the liberal American bishops' way, or else. The stench of political correctness in the ECUSA is overwhelming.

Just as in the UCC, lib Christians pay only token consideration to conservative and/or traditional thinkers and continue on with their unChristian agendas.
