"That authority lies with our General Convention": Now, who didn't see that coming?

Okay, Jim Naughton is not an "official" spokesman for ECUSA, but doesn't this sound just like what we will be hearing soon "officially"?

From The Lead at the Episcopal Cafe:

Live, breaking: a pastoral forum

. . . I've talked to several Episcopal Church leaders who favor the full inclusion of GLBT people in the Anglican Communion. None find the proposal acceptable. One said "the train is coming" and it means to run us over. Another said that the report is unlikely to bear fruit, and that the bishops must speak against it in the indaba groups.

It's worth pointing out, as always, that the bishops of the Episcopal Church do not have the authority to assent on the Church's behalf, to this proposal--not that that is likely. That authority lies with our General Convention. . .

Read it all.
