Reading Sydney Anglican bigotry and hypocrisy is like committing an act of self harm... or like standing in the middle of a highway and being run over by a semi trailer!
|And I dared to criticise ...I could have been killed instead of being continually winged ...but I do like BIG FISH because they are nice and juicy! |
Mrs Slocombe...what about this quote ...
one person was absent from his usual chair that night: Phil Jensen. He had spent Sunday at St Andrew's Cathedral handing out print copies of another blog claiming, with no evidence, that Davies was biblically dodgy.
It didn't work, and a furious Jensen spent Tuesday afternoon reeling from the loss of the clergy vote and talking to supporters about whether he should turn up to synod at all. He was spied by only one or two people. He has now deleted the two essays he wrote deriding Davies, inserting one containing fulsome praise instead"....Now jolt my memory Mr Humphries...because I was sure a photo of an Ould was removed from The Anglican Church League website...just prior to legal threats being issued to someone else for posting that exact same photo...They sure are shifty little critters ... some Sydney Anglicans!
Did someone say the word Ould...because I heard somewhere on The Australian Church record site ...that Peter Jensen made one of those Oulds what he is today.
Yeah ...kind of the same sentiments I have for Phillip Jensen! And just incase Phillip Jensen's essay goes missing...it's published in the blog below.
OMG it is so hard to choose...but I think this has got to be my favourite question...
If you had been in archbishop Jensen's shoes with the same freedoms and responsibilities, would you have created GAFCON, or gone to Lambeth, or gone to Lambeth or gone to GAFCON if somebody else created it, or gone to both GAFCON and Lambeth as some evangelicals did?
...And Rick Smith's answer..."I don't know"... What's he mean he doesn't ****ing know?...Doesn't the man have an opinion?...Probably didn't understand the question, which was written with the intent to out Glenn Davies... I mean rumour has it that Glenn Davies wasn't in favour of the Lambeth boycott...but he was the person who was used at synod to sure up the vote so the Sydney Diocese would support the Lambeth boycott...and attend GAFCON...such ambiguity is the nature of the Sydney Anglican psyche!
Well hello... I'm the editor of The Australia Church Record ...and you can see all our questions ...right here in the August issue...but here's a few snippets to wet your appetite...
Q. I understand that you grew up in the Sydney Diocese, when it came time for your theological training, why did you choose to go to Moore College?
A. Rick's answer... Only because I wanted to be an Anglican minister in Sydney and I was told I had to.
NB. According to the Bible Society...Glenn Davies attended the Presbyterian-aligned Westminster Theological Seminary...and not Moore College.
Q. Sydney is known for its conservative evangelical Protestant stance.
What are the early signs of an evangelical going liberal
What are the early signs of a Protestant turning Catholic?
Well...I was going to say compassion...but my complementarian parents told me the right answer is ...when they start to growing a tail and horns...because they've begun to reject the bigotry and discrimination of power broking nutters ... like those who have constructed this Quiz!
Q. Sydney has repeatedly rejected the ordination of women.
This has arisen from the complementarian view of men and women.
How would explain that position simply?
