Anglican Church in American AND union with Rome

This article gives a pretty good summary of the problems that would be involved in the TAC (ACA) being allowed to be unified with Rome. The rumors of pending Personal Prelature status have not borne fruit and possibly for the reasons noted here.

That’s a shame.

Especially in light of the apparent drift of Anglicans in the U.S. towards the Orthodox churches rather than to the Catholic church, it seems that the major sticking point is the respective bishops’ answerability to the Pope rather than any doctrinal or dogmatic rift.

Details of what I have been saying every time this long-standing issue gets raised.

I’m very dubious.
