Too little, too late.

This is part of the submission of ECUSA to the Anglican Consultative Council. The other part is a document freely available in the public domain. All I want to do, at this point, is draw the interested reader’s attention to one thing.

What is the basis of authority on which the case is made?

Take your time, work through the transcription. Ask yourself, what is the basis of authority on which the case is made?

Is it

Scripture?
Reason?
Tradition?
Experience?

Ultimately, what is the basis of authority on which the case is made?

I think once you see it for what it is, you’ll understand why ECUSA, as represented here, isn’t Anglican, let alone Christian.

  1. I had a lot of guesses as to the ultimate basis of ECUSA’s truth: the American zeitgeist, inclusivity (hearing “many voices”), whatever is not in a Biblical proof-text, and finally — a denial that truth can even be known definitively.

    But, this sentence seemed to sum it up best:

    Anglicanism has been about not knowing the mind of God but in maintaining a conversation with one another.

    So, the epistemology of ECUSA is … well … humanism.

    We do not have the “mind of Christ” … instead, we pool our ignorance, until it becomes that one, great, and pluriform ignorance: the mind of ECUSA.

    A side note from this report: Apparently, as a straight male in ECUSA, I’m part of a tiny minority! As a straight male who opposes use of the new prayer book, the new baptismal covenant, WO, and Gene Robinson, all I can say is: Where are my minority rights, granted to me (apparently) by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King (that noted Episcopalian)? /sarcasm
