GAFCON Leaders Confirm There Will Be No Split

Archbishop Nzimbi of Kenya, who is heading up the GAFCON communiqué committee, and Archbishop Orombi of Uganda have both confirmed that GAFCON is not seeking to split from the Anglican Communion.

An interesting element in this direction is the leadership of the Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen. He has a rather divisive image and is a polarizing figure. (Just mention his name at The Ship of Fools, for example.) And I have several issues with him as well. Yet Ruth Gledhill notes that he is a key influence behind GAFCON not splitting from the Anglican Communion.

It seems those eeevil “schismatics” aren’t so schismatic after all.
