|¨The fact is we disagree so passionately precisely because all participants in the debate love the Communion.¨|
NOTE: The following is a small segment of a concluding statement taken out of the essay ¨What is not being said about the Covenant?¨ by Paul Bagshaw.
The fact is we disagree so passionately precisely because all participants in the debate love the Communion.
¨....We do not want to see the Communion held to ransom by provinces in one part of the world who disagree with what is happening in another. Those opposed to the Covenant value the Communion we have inherited and do not want to see its 'bonds of affection' replaced by a single, centralising, coercive, excommunicatory Anglican constitution.
To the contrary: we wish to reaffirm the Communion's traditional mutual regard, its rich diversity, its varied traditions, its mutual aid and mutual criticism, its awkward dispersed authority and its uneveness of orders.
For all these reasons we reject the Covenant.¨ please read it all, by Paul Bagshaw, HERE
