Carnival of the Anglican Crisis

SHUT UP, HE EXPLAINED— +Hutchison criticizes ++Rowan for being insufficiently liberal decisive, suggests cancelling Lambeth. Comments here; and over here. Off with the cuddly-grampy mask, is it Andy? After Dromontine (2005), HM King +Andy came home breathing fire and Anglican separatism. He presumed to speak on behalf of the entire Canadian Church, word has it, without consulting outside his inner circle of cronies.. certainly not with the House of Bishops. Here he goes again. He, for his part, has allied with Queen Katie. One might think it strange that this is all on the eve of a primatial election: that is, he’s setting fires and possibly burning bridges for the next Canadian Primate to deal with right off the bat. It could also be that he’s using this opportunity to muscle the Canadian Church in one direction, forestalling others– just as the planned coup d’eglise gay marriage motion at general Synod 2007 is intended to close down debate forever in the Canadian Church (it will be, of course, written into National and Diocesan Canon Laws across much of the country, with new deacons, priests, and bishops expected to sign on) … (Various)

WHERE WE ARE: “..the use of the the state to force “homosexual marriage” upon us obviously has nothing to do with promoting marriage but destroying its very foundation — including, of course, its linguistic foundation. “Marriage” is a word that actually means something, both literally and spiritually, which is to say, a sacred union between a Man and a Woman. Therefore, anyone with a remnant of common sense — anyone not already infected by leftism — knows without thinking about it that homosexuals cannot marry for the same reason that a baseball player cannot kick a field goal. A classical liberal would affirm that homosexuals are free to invent most any form of human arrangement they wish, but they cannot marry without forever destroying both the literal word and the very real — but “invisible” — spiritual state it signifies.” … (

WHY HARDCORE LIBS hate the WebElves and our fellow mock-bloggers: “Eliminating humor is essential to the totalitarian system. In His novel The Joke, Kundera has a Communist sympathizer saying, “No great movement designed to change the world can bear to be laughed at or belittled. Mockery is a rust that corrodes all it touches.” A sense of humor would allow people to see the irony in the internal contradictions and turn laughingly away from it. The modern Progressive, leftist and liberal movements lack any real humor. What passes for humor in those precincts is actually more accurately classified as ridicule and mockery. While driving the other day I saw an excellent example, bumper stickers that read, “So Many Right-Wing Christians So Few Lions”. This is not humor. It is, rather, a kind of puerile, jejune attempt to wrap a hate message in a clever phrase and hurl it through the windshield of any car that had the misfortune to be driving behind. This is the very sort of message that the owner of that car would, no doubt, condemn utterly if it were aimed at any of the liberally approved minorities. How would he respond to- “So Many Black People, So Few Lynch Mobs”? I can’t see how one is any worse than the other. Political correctness, tone deaf “humor” and the conceit of “true belief”, are turning the mainstream left into a confederacy of Agélastes….” … (
