Why Are They Still Here? Why are they still Bishops?


Well folks, the "All Africa Bishops Conference" is now over and we are once again, the main target of their venom. We being the Episcopal Church in the United States. To this "All-African Bishops" we add folks like Robert Duncan and Martyn Minns and John Guernsey and a handful of other interlopers. Interlopers being those who are currently crossing provincial boundaries to actively break up and destroy the Episcopal Church in the United States of America.


This action, cross boundaries work is illegal. Many of these "bishops" and "priests' have been inhibited/defrocked. So, why is it Bishop Schori does not have a contingent sitting on ABC Williams door step insisting that the ABC take some form of affirmative action to eliminate this activity? Why is it we do not have a contingent from our Church travelling the world stopping at each province and working the primate until these folks are abandoned just as they abandoned the Episcopal Church in the United States? What are we waiting for? Why can't we get this done? What is keeping us from reducing these wrong-headed fools to a footnote in religious history?


Just asking?

The only way, IMV, to respond to the likes of Robert Duncan is ignore them and go about the work of being the church. I don't want to fall into the trap that many of them seem to have fallen into, i.e., defining ourselves as "not them."

Daniel,
Well, there is more to it than that. He/they continue to flit around the globe like they are somebody and we, the Episcopal Church, needs to "flit around the globe" and convince everyone these people are defrocked, inhibited and should not be practicing Anglican clergy and we should make/convince the powers that be that to recognize these trashing people is wrongheaded and just plain wrong! That does not fall into the "they are not us" category.
