My Boyfriend's Back

He went away and you hung around
And bothered me, every night
And when I wouldn't go out with you
You said things that weren't very nice
My boyfriend's back and you're gonna be in trouble
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
You see him comin' better cut out on the double
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
You been spreading lies that I was untrue
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
So look out now cause he's comin' after you

Well, apparently it took Mr. Iker all of about 30 seconds to decide that, hey, Mr. Akinola and Mr. Venables and Mr. Orombi will protect me so I am once again going on/to be offensive.

In Mr. Iker's own version of My boyfriend is back and there is gonna be trouble he states:
So let the “professionally mediated conversation” begin at the earliest opportunity. But let there also be a halt to the litigation and law suits against all parties at the same time. How can we expect to resolve the impasse we are in when TEC still seeks to use the civil courts to eliminate all opposition?

And this,
As this scheme proceeds, so must the work of the Common Cause Partnership in forming the Anglican Church in North America at its constitutional assembly in June 2009 in Bedford, Texas. The Pastoral Council and the ACNA must cooperate together in finding a way to establish “a provisional holding arrangement” for the new Province as the formal recognition process unfolds.

Well, isn't that special?  We, ACNA will continue to do what we want and you, TEC, will cease doing what you do and we will then have a professionally mediated conversation of reconciliation.  Jack, we may have fallen off the truck, we just didn't fall off last night.  I hope that we do not do stupid, at least I have never seen TEC do stupid and now is not a good time to start.  

And then, Mr. Iker tells us it is not HIS fault that everyone is leaving.  Certainly he is not "proselytizing" but if all those others want to leave he certainly is going to accept them.  Jack what did you and your friends in Pittsburgh and San Joaquin do if not take a bunch of people with you?  And by the way, TEC has never said you could not go -- just leave the property where you found it, in the hands of the TEC diocese (BTW, saying your Episcopal is a little like saying that Big Pete has got clothes on, that dog don't hunt neither).  

The best way to begin the reconciliation process is to give back the property you have taken with you.  You want the lawsuits to end, give back the land and the buildings that you never owned in the first place.  When all is said and done, don't think for one instant that any of those guys in the Global south are going to stand up for you and ACNA.  Wait till they are threatened and see how quickly they melt.  I tell you what, let's wait until the last dance and see who is there to take you home?  Don't be surprised if you end up walking.
