"Seven conservative Anglican archbishops refused to take communion with the head of the U.S. branch of the church on Friday, in protest at her pro-gay stance in a row pushing the Church toward schism.It is hard for me to imagine Jesus taking this action.
'This deliberate action is a poignant reminder of the brokenness of the Anglican Communion,' said a statement posted on the Web site of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, led by Archbishop Peter Akinola.
'We are unable to take the Holy Table with the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church because to do so would be a violation of the traditional Anglican teaching,' it said."
But then again, I find myself frustrated with the entire way the Bible is read, misread, used as weapon, etc. by all sides. There are times when the Bible appears as a Rorschach test for whoever reads it.
