Panel of Reference Worse Than a Sham

Long time readers of this blog know I can be just a little pessimistic and cynical on occasion. But even I underestimated what a sham the Panel of Reference has turned out to be.

Heck, some Canadian petitioners to the Panel have even found their situation to be made worse for their efforts.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has a lot to answer for in this matter. First, he took his sweet time in appointing the panel. Then he appointed --Peter Carnley to chair it. Talk about putting the fox in charge of the henhouse! And the Panel went further downhill from there.

This sham Panel is clearly a perversion and subversion of the Primates’ intent in calling for this panel “as a matter of urgency.” I wonder how ++Rowan can look them in the eye.
