Oh No! Global South Anglicans See CRITICAL CRISIS

Oh, puhleeze. Enough of the victimhood already! I thought the queers had cornered the market on victimhood, but these boys have surpassed us by a long shot.

Read the Global South Anglicans' long whine. Try to do it without laughing hysterically. Oh, the poor, poor victims!

Note the beginning:

We the undersigned Primates, Archbishops and Bishops and our Episcopal colleagues from all over the Communion are gathered together at the Lambeth Conference 2008 to seek the face of God … " blah-blah-blah …
Well, the fact is, the True Believers of the "Global South" boycotted Lambeth, and the Global South primates threatened severe sanctions on any bishops who might defy the boycott. Credibility, anyone?

I really love their comment about the "current critical crisis in the Communion." They have an ear for alliteration, even if they lack a sense of redundancy or truth. But never mind . . .

And I love that they claim to be "some 200 bishops," but they published this statement without having a single signatory. That's right: Not one single signatory!

And this is precious:
4. We gather at a critical time when the Anglican Communion as a communion of ordered churches is at the probable brink of collapse.
Uhhhh … Am I the only one who noticed that they didn't gather at all …. much less at a "brink of collapse"? They boycotted the Lambeth Conference. Remember? These guys will surely replace Abbot and Costello!

It is rich beyond measure that in point 5 they "urge this Lambeth Conference to give clear endorsement and immediate implementation of the interim proposals of the Windsor Continuation Group proposals" including "the cessation of cross-boundary interventions." Don't these guys have editors?? LOL!

This is a truly precious document. It purports to be the statement of The Global South Anglicans. But an "Editor's Note" at the end says "Signatures are still being gathered at the point of posting and will be released as soon as we are able or if appropriate."

"Able or appropriate"???

Who are these clowns??

I suppose they were desperate to issue their statement before the Lambeth Conference ended ... whether or not anyone had signed it.

Actually, I bet they wrote this before the Lambeth Conference even began. I bet they thought they could get some traction with it, the same way that the Archbishop of Sudan hoped to derail Lambeth with his comments early in the conference. Too bad. They failed.

This is really too ridiculous for words. As some friends are wont to say: You just can't make this stuff up!

Roll on, Global South! With a little more polish, you might be able to make it onto Saturday Night Live.

Or course there are no signatures. Every time Martyn Minns, er, I mean the Global South produces a document with signatures, they end up with a host of people who deny having signed. No signatures is the simplest solution.

Cowardice, thy name is GAFFEPRONE.

Oh the pain, oh the suffering!

Instead of sending antibiotics and such to some of these countries, we should send Vicodin, Lortab, and Tylenol -- given all that pain.

We too, are painfully aware of the absence of one of our colleagues. +Gene. He was even prohibited of attending meetings with his own House of Bishops!

It's one thing to exclude him from the Conference, that's bad enough. But to exclude him from his own Church is unbelievable.

Where's the "Listening Process" in all this? As far as I'm concerned the "Listening Process" means to the Global South as if they were God, and the only listening the Global South need do in return is hear the "Amens, We're So Sorry, We Did So Wrong, We Repent, blah blah blah" of the west.

I'm done with these people. Done. Finished.

LOL, Malcolm! I suspect you are correct.

StLouisJohn, please don't give up yet! Give up on the Anglican Communion? Yeah, I'm increasingly with you. But remember we have many, many fine parishes in this diocese. Please don't give up on us yet, until we hear how Bishop Smith is going to respond to Lambeth.
