Key Global South Primates Meeting with Archbishop of Canterbury

I find intriguing the news that, at their initiative, the Primates of the Southern Cone, Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda are meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury today. These are the key primates behind Anglican interventions in North America. Inquiring Anglicans would like to know their intent in asking for a meeting with ++Rowan Williams as well as to be a fly on the wall during their time together.

Some speculation: Perhaps, they wish to commend a new North American province as the best way to provide for orthodox North American Anglicans and to bring interventions, aka “boundary crossing”, to an end.

In any case, just that this meeting is happening and so quickly after the birth of the Anglican Church in North America is interesting indeed.

It's fun to speculate how Mrs. Schori and her lackeys would react to having the "boundary crossing" issue taken away. My guess is they will, presto-change-o, liken it to the Civil War. They will make pious references to Abraham Lincoln and the preservation of the Union, along with sneering comparisons of the ACNA to the Rebel South.

Remember, Mark, you read it here first!
