Devious or Not
My latest piece at the Daily Episcopalian is on display. It starts with the Archbishop of Canterbury's speech on 19 November at the Gregorian Pontifical University and looks at some straight and devious readings of what he has been doing there and with the Covenant intention assumed in that speech and more generally. Then we have the Pope's Finger, which bizarrely might help clear up some of the Anglican mess and get things moving. The context, however, of this Covenant and sacrificing a minority on the back of building a religious bureaucracy has taken a far nastier and cruel turn with the situation in Uganda, and the silence of an otherwise verbose Williams and publicity-seeker Sentamu is bordering on the criminal.
