OLD ZOMBIE LIBERAL PRIMATES never die– they just scheme and connive and try to make sure their pomps & works endure. Case in point– The Whole Message Conference: Inclusiveness in the Anglican Church of Canada, 13 – 14 April 2007. Keynote Speech A. “In for the long haul” The Most Reverend Michael Peers, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, 1986-2004. You’ll remember Peers– promoted the ECUSA-fication of the Canadian Church; helped invent and later protected Bp. Michael Ingham; promoted same-sexuality, new liturgies, new hymnbooks, and the like, polarized the Can-Ang church (and nearly bankrupted it with Residential-school lawsuits). He also fought against Lambeth Resolutiuon 1.10, and during the subsequent controversy. A real piece of work. And now, just months ahead of the General Synod comes himself in a whiff of brimstone back onto the public Anglican stage. Read the whole program adn lsit of the usual suspects– it’s taking place at the church of the infamous Canon Garth Bulmer, who single-handedly hijacked General Synod 2004, by cleverly inserting the words “integrity and sanctity” into a motion on same-sex relationships. Here’s what Canadian theologian Edith Humphrey said on that matter(Various)
