Just one of the many reasons the Anglican Communion is in such disarray, Bishop Eugene Robinson and his "husband."
This week five Anglican bishops resigned their positions with the Church of England and intend to become part of the new structure in the Roman Catholic Church for former Anglicans. One of them says thousands of lay Anglicans will swim the Tiber to Rome. Time will tell.

I feel for traditional Anglicans and Episcopalians who have had their Church hijacked by extreme left wing social engineers in their denomination who prefer a post-Christian Anglican Communion. In doing so they have set in motion the destruction of their institution and have thumbed their noses at the Anglican/Catholic dialogue which for years had striven to bring the two Communions back together again. In the 1970's there was actual hope that this might happen. Positions that the Anglicans have taken beginning with ordination of women to their priesthood and subsequent more radical positions have moved the Church of England further away from Roman Catholicism, more so than at any point since King Henry VIII brought Catholicism in England into open schism.
Pope Benedict has found another way to bring Anglicans back to the full communion of their Church. He is the pope of Christian unity!
