I wanted to take a few minutes out of the work week to apologize to anyone rightfully offended by my unnecessarily sharp words against “Anglicanism” earlier in the thread (the post was deleted). My strained attempt at sardonic wit was carelessly applied with far too broad of brush (i.e. implicating Anglicans in general) and I apologize for that. My words were really only against the quickly dwindling heretical/liberal portions of the Anglican Church. The vast majority of the Anglican Churches throughout the world (and I certainly count the Continuum as an often shining example in this number) are, despite inevitable issues, seeking to walk faithfully with Christ–and are frequently doing a very good job of it. Besides, the theology in the classic Anglican Prayer Books isn’t half-bad either (I would argue that it basically is–as far as fallible documents go-- spot-on)*.

On the other hand, as to what I think of the the dwindling higher critical/liberal factions in the Anglican Church (and in the other major Christian bodies throughout the world)–well, you already know what I think
