The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

You have to read this, and not because it’s about a Buddhist: VirtueOnline

…For too long the silent majority, those dedicated Episcopalians who faithfully attend Mass on Sundays and sometimes Wednesdays, has taken it on the chin. First, there was the ordination of female priests, then came female bishops. The “first mitered Mama”– as she referred to herself in an early television news interview -– recently celebrated her twentieth year wearing the pointed hat.

Now there is a female presiding bishop, whom feminists praise for breaking through the stained glass ceiling, while she is out to dismantle the very church which raised her to such a lofty position – one diocese, one church, one bishop, one priest, and one parishioner at a time. No one is safe from her tentacled reach.

And of course, let us not forget Gene Robinson who became a “June bride” last year and helped to rend the very fabric of worldwide unity in the Anglican Communion, the bond which was holding nearly 80 million Anglican Christians together in brotherly love, respect, harmony and fellowship.

Yeah. Even the staid Episcopalians have their lunatic fringe, it seems. Just look at all that “brotherly love, respect and fellowship.” This must be the Anglican version of Opus Dei.

  1. Gads…as a long-time Episcopalian, one time staffer, I’m just stunned by these folks. Of course, most of them have minimal experience with the outside world. They’re really a sad lot. An angry, vocal, annoying sad lot. Of course, they’d really love me. Someone who was brought back to the Christian faith by Thomas Merton. In the end, I refuse to let them define my faith. Light will penetrate even their self-inflicted stony souls.

    Amazing, isn’t it?
