Andrew at Shrine of the Holy Whapping reports more about what the leader of the Traditional Anglican Communion recently said.
We have no doctrinal differences with Rome which would keep us from being in full communion with each other. The climate is brewing for the Traditional Anglican Communion to be the 27th ecclesial group accepted into communion with Rome and the first church touched by the Reformation to do so.
How can this be true? Especially after the progressive prophet Gene Robinson recently said:
Bishop Robinson said: "We are seeing so many Roman Catholics joining the church.
"Pope Ratzinger may be the best thing that ever happened to the Episcopal Church."
Well to give him his due maybe he was being prophetic like the High Priest Kaifa when he said, “it is better that one man die and the whole people
do not perish.” They both had no idea that the actual truth of the their words had nothing to do with what they meant.
Truly Pope Benedict may be the best thing that ever happened to the Episcopal Church if his papacy provides an example for more to cross the Tiber. Though Gene Robinson is doing his part to remind those swimmers that when they see Bishop Robinson on the bank of the river that turning back is not an option. Then-Cardinal Ratzinger in his book "Introduction to Christianity" when talking about the Monarchians and Modalists that there arguments helped to lead to a correct conception of God and said in this case even "error was fruitful." Here’s to hoping the errors of Gene Robinson and others will be fruitful, especially in regards to Church unity.
