RE: [HoB/D] Akinola and the Kairos Connection Part 1



First they came for homosexuals at Lambeth 98; but few spoke up in the
Church of England, certainly not the Archbishop of Canterbury, who led the
charge.

Next they came for Jeffrey John, a gay man appointed as bishop suffragan;
but few spoke up in the Church of England, and his close friend the
Archbishop of Canterbury pressured Geoffrey John to turn down the
appointment.

Next they came for The Anglican Church in Canada because they blessed
lesbians and gays in committed relationships, and few in the Church of
England spoke up, certainly not the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Next they came for Episcopal Church in the USA because it consented to the
consecration a gay man elected as bishop; but few in the Synod of the Church
of England spoke up, and certainly not the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Next they came for the Anglican Consultative Council.  Although primates
have no jurisdiction at the ACC, they pressured to  restructure the ACC and
to assure that the primates will control it into perpetuity.  That passed
narrowly, and only because the North Americans had been forced to give up
vote and voice.  Yet the Church of England did not speak up to oppose it,
and certainly not the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Now it appears they have come for the Church of England and for the
Archbishop of Canterbury, and no one else with standing in the Communion is
left who will speak for the Church of England and the Archbishop of
Canterbury.
