The Schismatic Archbishop, the Secular Press and the Hope of Sydney

Archbishop Glenn Davies of Sydney seems to have upset a few people – The Sydney Morning Herald along with much of the media are concerned that he is being a bit extreme in his statements.   Judge for yourselves – this is what he said.

“My own view is that if people wish to change the doctrine of our Church, they should start a new church or join a church more aligned to their views – but do not ruin the Anglican Church by abandoning the plain teaching of Scripture.” “Please leave us. We have far too much work to do in evangelising Australia to be distracted by the constant pressure to change our doctrine in order to satisfy the lusts and pleasures of the world.”

Media Intolerance

The SMH today had an article, an editorial and several letters having a go at Davies.   The tactics are always the same.  Firstly you get a friendly liberal clergyman to state how the conservative view is ‘divisive’ and ‘unloving’.  It’s even better if they indulge in a little character assassination as well.   Then you portray the one side as being ‘unloving’ and judge them for their judgementalism.  Finally, you dogmatically insist that only your view is the tolerant one and worthy of support in modern society and back this up with a series of accusatory and mocking letters.   All this is done by the SMH, without a trace of self-awareness.

Let’s just take two examples.
