Draft Anglican Covenant

The Draft Anglican Covenant from the Covenant Design Group is available here in pdf form.

We try to stay on top of things here at the Dance Party.

I invite discussion of the text in the comments.

I wrote some about it in my blog but have to say that I am a dispirited, though not surprised... after all, it's not the first time the institution has kicked us in the gut. I am so, so tired of a bunch of men obsessing over ho-mo-*sex*-u-a-li-ty when it's a guise for their misogyny and fear.

Nonetheless, my congregation isn't going to show me the door and a couple of primates are not going to have the power over me to tell me that I am a lesser child of God. I just grieve for those who don't know that in their hearts.

It's silly and selfdecitful to keep playing "catch" with this crowd of hatemongers...I don't believe we can keep on playing the Primate "game"...unacceptable.

Eileen said...

It's making me plain sad, angry and dispirited! I want to kick someone's shin, and I don't have anyone nearby who is deserving of a kick in the shin. You know?

Aghaveagh said...

You have a typo in your title--it's "Daft," not "Draft."

Aghaveagh said...

Uh, oh, I think I will move slowly and quietly away from Eileen before she kicks me in the shin...unless I deserve it.

Eileen said...

Nah...I'll kick the desk or somethin'. I can't kick the nice blog-people!

Padre Mickey said...

Thanks for pointing out the typo, aghaveagh! And Eileen, any more kicking and you'll be sitting in the car, young lady!!

Just once I would like to meet one of my most "disliked" blog puritan commenters and/or bigoted Primates in "person"...I may be old but I'm not dead yet (even though I might be at the end of the first round...but, I'll take my chances anyway and count on my mouth)...I think I've gone over the top with these creatures that exclude and want to steal our Church property in the name of God.

Leonardo, I really think that if everyone was able to meet in real life, we would find out what we have in common and we would probably like each other. I know that you believe this too because you have said as much. But I wouldn't stand for them saying the nasty stuff they are so happy to post on these blogs.

I met Fr. Ephriam Radner at Epiphany West, and was even at dinner with him one night. Even though we are on opposite poles in these matters, we liked each other and had good conversations.

It's easier to demonize those we don't know. I think that ++Ankinola and his bunch avoided eating with the other Primados because they realized they would have trouble maintaining their self-righteous anger if they had to spend time with everyone and learn that they, too, are good Christians and children of God.

Thanks Padre, but are you certain you're not recovery from the Fr. Ephriam Radner illness he may have inflicted on you? You were pretty sick, pretty fast.I heard many have it in Colorado and there is no known cure...boy, were you lucky to snapback so quickly...just kidding but I'm wondering if that isn't how ++Katharine got overly comfy with this crowd...I honestly believe their is active deception going on and only some real "witness"...honest I do.

I See You!
