I’m an Episcopalian. I grew up Southern Baptist, and still love that Faith Tradition. But I also very much love the Liturgy, and find the Prayer Book a wonderful comfort. That’s part of why this story by Dr. Mullen (Dr Mullen is the rector of St. Michael’s, Cornhill, in the City of London and chaplain to the London Stock Exchange) so deeply disturbing. The current Archbishop of Canterbury is an evangelical, and relatively conservative. It’s apparent this new nominee will further divide the Anglican Communion.

For those who aren’t privy to this family fight, a little explanation.
The Episcopal Church is primarily a very Liberal denomination. Many bishops and rectors jettisoned The Faith long ago, and embraced a fuzzy form of Christianity that leaves Christ out.

The denomination’s most famous representative is John Shelby Spong. The link will take you to a critique of his theology from Probe. He is, in this writer’s opinion, a heretic. .

There is in the Episcopal Church a guerilla war. Conservative Evangelicals are working hard to bring about change. We have looked to the Archbishop of Canterbury for some inspiration, or at least knowledge that attack will not come from that quarter. That may change, if Dr. Mullen is correct. I fear he is.

John Podheretz has it just about right. His analysis of the two political parties makes a lot of sense.Let’s hope he isn’t right about the conclusion of what he calls “the melodrama.”

Take a look at this. I wish this mother had spoken out sooner, like before the father used his daughter to push his own atheist agenda to remove God from the Pledge. Ties in well wtith the story below it on the ACLU agenda.

Here’s the “more on that later” as promised on the latest Democratic attacks. Again, from the Wall Street Journal.

Easier reading than yesterday’s peice by Byron York, but covers the same ground.

Oh, this is a good one from Peggy Noonan. Gotta tell ya, I’ve been feeling a little down of late. I think alot of folks have as they watch their stocks tank, hear new attacks on Mr Bush (more on that later) and see the New Economy melt right back into the Old Economy. It seems like the energy and patriotism we found after 9/11 just kinda melted along with the stock market.

This article makes a difference, and puts a little needed perspective back where it should be. Thngs are different, yet the same in a good way. Pat Tillman’s enlistment makes me realize that.
