Sectarian? You bet! And proud of it!

“Meanwhile, I seriously doubt that the Episcopal Church will overturn previous statements on issues of sexuality. In fact, as most of you know, I hope we do not turn back at all. We still have a long way to go in appreciating the gifts and talents of every member of Christ’s body; and we still have a long way to go in blessing wholesome and holy relationships. These issues will require time and patience before they are finally settled. I have no problem with The Episcopal Church, within Christendom, being in a minority on some issues. In fact, when one includes Roman Catholicism and the Orthodox, it is very much a minority position in Christendom even to ordain women.”

From “Should the Anglican Communion Concern Us?” by the Rev. Sam Candler, Dean of St Philips Cathedral in Atlanta, March 8

And of course, there is no connection between these two issues. Just repeat after me. Nope, none at all. Nada. Zip. Just can’t be, nosiree . . .
