KJS on Emissions

From Here...

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori of the American Episcopal church has responded to the Global Anglican Future Conference with a statement which included the following,
Much of the Anglican world must be lamenting the latest emission from GAFCON.

Her choice of the word, "emission" is interesting. It was obviously carefully chosen, because it is not the obvious word to use. She has gone out of her way to use that particular term. It is obviously meant to give a derisive tone to her statement, and to indicate her revulsion toward those who would hold to a more traditional Christianity than the one she and others of a similar mindset embrace.

Hills of the North has an excellent analysis of her response Here...

The liberal North American church does indeed retain an attitude of colonial superiority toward people of "lesser" races and cultures, doesn't it?

Take Care
