From the pulpit today Mary Cat, and Charlie from the aisle tried a little brainwashing. All designed to make it appear that the ECUSA has it right while the rest of the world has it all wrong. Through self discipline you too can immunize yourself against brainwashing. Here is my take on the impending battle for your soul. First, I predict the African Bishops will be tarred and feathered as homophobic thick heads because of their Schori snub. Listening to our clergy I thought, "Uh oh, now we are starting to hear the talking points to be used against the current worldview that the ECUSA has turned into an apostate sect." When the African Bishops refused to share communion with Ms. Schori, they lost any moral high ground they may have held. (see link in this title). By demonstrating such unchristian behavior, they strengthened her position. Of course she will never be able to take the moral high ground as long as she remains intransigent herself. It looks like two rudderless ships trying to ram each other. I think I will watch the fray from my little island, with the Good Book, BCP, Hymnal, blog, a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread and thou. It seems this lowly pewster is left without worldly leadership at present.
