The REAL issues facing General Convention
Sure, some people worry about trivial things like mission or whether the Episcopal Church will get kicked out of the Anglican Communion. You’ve got your whiners about justice and health insurance. There are the lobbyists for things like liturgical revisions. Canon people are always spouting on and on about something or other. Yada, yada, yada.
These people have all missed the point. There is really only one key issue that will define the Episcopal Church for the next triennium, and it will be settled in the next 24 hours or so. After that, the rest of General Convention is anticlimactic. We might even save money and cancel the rest of it.
Of course, I am talking about clothes. At the last General Convention (and for many others before that), the Presiding Bishop always paraded around in the purple cassock. Even more impressive, the President of the House of Deputies wore full academic regalia when presiding over the House. But that was Griswold & Werner. A new gang is in town: Jefferts Schori & Anderson. Will they keep up the noble tradition of the church? Or will they sell out to modernity and wear non-Anglican clothes?
Watch this space for a BREAKING NEWS headline when the answer is known. ENS, Stand Firm, and the Episcopal Cafe will not have the courage to cover these truly important stories. That’s why you need to stay tuned to 7WD Live Team Coverage. (Remember, we’re the people who brought you The Truth About The Fence.)
