Puritans doing what they do best!
I've read the HoB's report, and the Joint Standing Committee's report, and, while not overjoyed by the decisions made, I figure it could have been much worse. However, I have read some of the responses to both documents over at Titus 1:9 (All the Self-righteous Donatism with Much Less of the Spittle-flecked Rants One Will Find At Standing-Tough-On-Our-Little-Stone-Bridges-With-Our-Guns-Half-Cocked) and have been astonished at how angry the Regulars there are about all this. Were they promised a be-heading and a Burning-at-the-stake? They are very angry, very disappointed, and, although they don't say it, feel betrayed. I don't think they had very realistic expectations about this meeting. I can't take Standing-Tough-On-Our-Little-Stone-Bridges-With-Our-Guns-Half-Cocked or it's fellow blog You Won't Believe What Those People Do In Bed!!!! and haven't visited them, as simply driving in Central America has lifted my blood pressure to new, exciting heights, so I have no idea what the response at those two sites are, but, in my experience, things there are usually much nastier than Kendall's place.
Our brothers and sisters at "those places," fellow Christians all, really want our sorry-liberal-bottoms tossed into Outer Darkness, where there is Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth. They also appear to believe that the Entire World Wide Anglican Communion agrees with them. So, once again, unreasonable expectations will bring them even more disappointment and they will react with even more anger and mouth-foaming diatribes.
I've decided that I'm simply going to keep praying for them; I find it to be a humbling exercise, and it is really stretching me spiritually. I'm still a bit mean and nasty about them, as this post proves, and I pray that God will open my heart to be more understanding. But I will do all I can to avoid visiting their sites anymore.
More Puritans having even More Fun!
