MONARCHICAL IMPLOSION VERSES DEMOCRATIC IMPOLSION, BUT IN THE MIDST OF ALL THE DEBRIS, WHICH INSTITUTION IS MORE FAITHFUL TO JESUS CHRIST, SCRIPTURE, TRADITION AND SOUND THEOLOGY?

Here is an Anglican religious reporter Giles Fraser that you can compare to the Catholic Robert Mickens one below it. Oddly it is the same recrimination toward the Church of England and its implosion begun by progressive policies put in place by democratic processes, the same democratic processes that traditionalists are using to their advantage to overturn, but of course, with politics, that could all change tomorrow and the non-traditionalists can accelerate the Church of England's implosion creating more debris, but not just of scandal but of the faith itself which is in pieces as it is as it tries to be faithful to relevancy rather than Jesus Christ.




Robert Mickens writes for the Tablet out of London, but it is the National Catholic Reporter's counterpart there, radical and with outdated progressiveness. So this gives you context for his agenda and vision for the Church and what he describes as the monarchical implosion of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church which obviously will be saved by the democratic processes the Church of England has adopted, all the more absurd:


Which debris do you prefer? Faith debris of the Anglican Communion or temporary scandal debris of the Catholic Church at this time? Just wondering!

This is proof that they have no agenda other than the destruction of the Church. "If you don't do 'X', you are bad; if you do 'X' you bad anyway'.

This is when I decide that any discussions or negotiations are simply stalling me from action.

Kick them out.

When, over thirty years ago, the CofE started considering women's ordination, proponents talked about 'prophetic witness' and talked down possible damage to Anglican/Catholic relations by assuming it would only be a matter of time before Rome followed suit. This assumption was blown out of the water when in a letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury Pope John Paul II stated baldly that "the admission of women to the presbyterate represents a break with Tradition which we are not competent to authorize". This was soon followed up by Ordinatio Sacerdotalis (1994).

Rowan Williams, despite being on the 'catholic' wing of the CofE, talked only in terms of social and political trends and said nothing about Christendom as a whole. The cherished Anglican belief that their Church is part of the Catholic Church seems to have been quietly dropped, and adherents seem to have tacitly accepted its status as a mere 'ecclesial community' (Dominus Iesus, 2000).

Why do these women wanting to be priests always look like they need a bath?
