Ruth Gledhill seems to think the “deposition” of Bishop Duncan is backfiring. In wry language, she opines that PB Schori’s act has created a martyr and has given that much more impetus to a new North American province for the orthodox.
It has crossed my mind recently that Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is secretly one of the "orthodox". That can surely be the only reason that she has created a martyr who is now being venerated by evangelicals worldwide, and who is poised to become the sanctified leader of an orthodox movement that is demanding, and might well get, its own province.
It is amazing how evil does backfire.
Gledhill’s Times story on support for +Duncan and pressure to create a new province may be found here.
+Rowan remains silent on all this though he is certainly busy pushing the Millennium Development Goals, of course.
Frankly, I think Our Lady could appear to His Grace and demand a new orthodox North American province, and he would neither create nor recognize one.
He is too much in another lady’s pocket.
