[Anglican Mainstream] 11 Feb 2009--The breaking news in the global Anglican world is the release of the Alexandria Primates’ Communiqué. While there are things positive to note and things negative to ponder, one might wonder if all the footnotes that are an integral part of the document were available to the primates, and if they were, how such agreement could be found. The Rev. Phil Ashey, J.D., the AAC’s Chief Operating Officer and Chaplain, has written a careful analysis of the Communiqué, and this is included as an article below.
Homosexual activist Colin Coward of Changing Attitude in the UK has made several comments about the Primates’ Meeting from his vantage point on the outside of the security line, noting at the beginning that the usual AAC/Anglican Mainstream team of Minns, Anderson and Sugden were missing from the lineup. It is always nice to be noticed and missed even by those on the other side of salvific issues. In his blog, Mr. Coward goes on to make the wild assertion that ". . . We [those who are homosexual] are also inside the Primates Meeting. There are Primates who are gay, but understandably conceal their sexuality. . . " Such a remark must be challenged. Who specifically is he saying is homosexual?
