Statement by Archbishop Peter Jensen
General Secretary of GAFCON/FCA
The agonising dispute in the Anglican Communion is not about Bishop Robinson personally. It is true that his consecration as a Bishop seven years ago was one of the flashpoints for a serious re-alignment of the whole Communion. But many things have happened since then. GAFCON is about the future. It is dedicated to the future of a renewed Anglican Communion centred on the orthodox teaching of the Jerusalem Declaration.Find and read the Jerusalem Declaration because you also find out it is not about the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is not even about sola scriptura. It is about power. Who has it, who wants it, who is willing to pay any price to get it. The group that is "GAFCON/FCA" are the archbishops tired of playing second fiddle to the Episcopal Church in the United States, The Anglican Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of England.

It is also about those who are willing to follow the folks who are willing to dump TEC, COE, ACC -- yes it is about ACNA and Mr. Duncan and whoa - hold on to your hat - it is about the Communion Partners. You want to send a message to GAFCON/FCA that we are not going to sit still for this type of power grubbing play they continue to display? Do not consent to the election of Father Dan Martins. This will tell them we will not willingly add to the prestige and power of those who are willing to kill the Episcopal Church.
