Father Ed's Blog: ANGLO CATHOLICISM IN CRISIS?

Father Ed's Blog: ANGLO CATHOLICISM IN CRISIS?

"But duplicitous thinking is the inevitable fruit of compromise. And those remaining Anglican yet seeking to identify as Catholic must swallow it because the official provision for those unable to accept the ordination of women is based on a model that assumes you are sexist not theologically principled. Its purpose (in their eyes) is to help you avoid the ministry of validly ordained women  not allow space for anyone to claim they are not in fact validly ordained.

Hence opponents must  write to their new woman bishop, thereby acknowledging her authority over them at the very outset, to politely request permission to then avoid her ministry… Hardly a Catholic solution to a serious problem. It might work for misogynists but how could it possibly appease a truly Catholic soul?"

  1. Only a few thoughts on Anglo-Catholicism in the official Anglican churches: it's liberal high church, credally orthodox and almost as liturgically conservative as I am, but socially liberal, so the trappings of the church are fun but the self-evident truths of homosexualism and feminism come first. THAT'S what they have a high theology about. Pushed against the wall, they'd say adios, Jesus. As for those who still say they oppose women's ordination, "I should have gone last Tuesday week, had not my partner objected."
