Anglican primates’ meeting abandons the Scottish faithful, by David Ould, Anglican Ink

Primates’ Meeting ends with call to avoid narrow-mindedness and focus on ‘total gospel’, by Madeleine Davies, Church Times [Anglican Mainstream editor’s comment: If the Primates’ statement says that the church needs to abandon biblical theology and ethics in order to focus better on helping the poor, this is in fact a disastrous betrayal of the poor].

Premier reports: “Anglican Communion calls for repentance over divisive ‘missionary’ bishops”, [but curiously does not report the absence of any call for repentance to those Provinces which have introduced the divisive innovation of same sex marriage. Or ask how a church which has been declared outside the Anglican Communion (ACNA) can be guilty of ‘cross-border intervention’ into other Anglican provinces? – Ed.]
