Executive Council meeting will be closed.

Well, well. The ECUSA Executive Council meeting which will decide whether to send representatives to the Anglican Consultative Council will probably be a closed meeting.

(Remember that the Primates have requested that the Episcopal Church withdraw from the ACC.)

Maybe there are legitimate reasons to close this meeting. But I doubt it.

Executive Council meetings are usually open in accordance with ECUSA policies. The timing of closing this one couldn’t be worse. It feeds the rampant (and justified) mistrust in ECUSA and makes a joke (again) of all the talk about openness and inclusiveness we hear over and over again from Griswold and company.

If a closed Executive Council defies the Primates and sends representatives to the ACC, all hell is going to break loose.
