Kick ‘Em When They’re Down?

Over on Episcopoid, we found this item. Now, we can’t say if the posting there verges on cheery and gleeful, but it certainly lacks signs of Christly compassion or Christian character towards a fallen brother.

Why? Hell hath no fury like liberalism scorned. Thus, the vocally conservative Fr. Pascoe is “one of them” for rabid ECUSA-loyalist “Rev.” Nunley; not of our tribe. You, know: Good riddance. A-HA! Told ya: they’re all hypocrites! One down, a few thousand to go. And so on. We’ll note there was no such liberal grave-dancing when the current bishop of New Hampshire revealed his battles with alcoholism (and many conservatives called for prayer). Shame, Jan: shame.

The Ballad of Andy & Katie

Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada,
and U.S. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori with a parishioner of
Christ Church Cathedral, in Zanzibar, Tanzania. (Paul Feheley)

HOW LIBERALS SAY IT WENT— “Archbishop Hutchison acknowledged that some Canadian Anglicans are “angry” that he signed the communiqué, but explained that he had taken his lead from U.S. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori. “I told her (Bishop Jefferts Schori), ‘It’s all about you. If you decide not to sign, I won’t sign. I’ll be there with you.’” … (anglicanjournal)

Various & Sundry Matters

MMMmmm.. Pretty Picture!

What do you get when two elves– a word-elf (1998-2007) and a geek-elf (2003-2007)– dream really large? CaNNet. The progessives imagine chicken-dinners, deep buckets of conspiracy gold and shadowy American foundations. At least with CaNN & CaNNet, the reality is more commonplace: shoestringing a server and supporting an astonishingly wide range of websites, to facilitate all sorts of Anglican ministry, bloggers, and other quiet goodness, for the good of the Church, and to the honour of Jesus Christ her Lord. All by donations.
