Remember all that talk about unity and “reconciliation” we used to hear from Episcopal libchurchers? At least as far as Presiding “Bishop” Schori is concerned, it was utter bull crap.
She (and many/most other libchurchers) does not consider orthodox Christians worthy of reconciliation and fellowship but worthy of exile or worse. A lovely example of that is her opinion of Bishop Mark Lawrence:
I tell you that story because it’s indicative of attitudes we’ve seen here and in many other places. Somebody decides he knows the law, and oversteps whatever authority he may have to dictate the fate of others who may in fact be obeying the law, and often a law for which this local tyrant is not the judge. It’s not too far from that kind of attitude to citizens’ militias deciding to patrol their towns or the Mexican border for unwelcome visitors. It’s not terribly far from the state of mind evidenced in school shootings, or in those who want to arm school children, or the terrorism that takes oil workers hostage.
To put “tyrant” or “school shootings” or “terrorism” even in the same sentence with Bishop Mark Lawrence boggles the mind and displays a delusional hatred of the orthodox.
Face it. When it comes to those in control, if you are a robust orthodox Anglican Christian, The Episcopal Church doesn’t welcome you any more.
The Episcopal Church hates you.
