GC ’06 Fallout: First Mitre Explosion

The mitre of Virginia Bishop Peter Lee is the first to explode over boundary crossings. He is in a huff over the Church of Nigeria’s election of Rev. Martyn Minns as bishop:

The election of the Rev. Martyn Minns as a Bishop of the Church of Nigeria with oversight of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America is an affront to the traditional, orthodox understanding of Anglican Provincial Autonomy.

It amuses me to see a man who publicly pronounced schism worse than heresy prate about what’s orthodox when his sacred diocesan boundaries are crossed.

More amusement to come I’m sure.
