Two Plus Two Is Five: The New Orthodoxy of The Episcopal Church


[Virtue Online] 27 Mar 2007--The Presiding Bishop and her colleagues in the House of Bishops emerged from Camp Allen this past week with their doctrinal portfolio complete. I don't mean they came away with an exposition of every Christian doctrine; but they did come away with a hermeneutical core.

Essentially it's this: two plus two equals five.

Schori demonstrated, with her dazzling combination of political adroitness and deliberate misinformation, the parody that is the Episcopal Church. In her homily she gave expositions of two classic doctrines that were just plain wrong, and emerged with a winning case for her new hermeneutic. Her episcopal colleagues rallied around the deception, most of whom knew better.
