Bishop Yellow Belly Finds a Friend

Some time last summer, the No Anglican Covenant Coalition posed a challenge to the supporters of the AC to produce some kind of credible argument for why the Anglican churches should sign this document. No one volunteered. Perhaps because those who want the Anglican Covenant believed that there was no more reason to debate about it.

Well, since then, there has been a growing discontent over the AC. And just last weekend, there were votes by at least four synods in England NOT to sign. In fact, the number of "NO" dioceses has far surpassed the ones who have voted "YES". And that's when the videos emerged with members of the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Unity, Faith and Order touting the need for the Covenant. There is even one American in the group.

The videos do very little to address the concerns that have been raised about the Covenant and what it seems to do in terms of creating a new central Anglican authority... which would be a first in the 500+ years of Anlican history. But it did provide an opportunity to bring back the stalwart Covenant defender, Bishop Yellow Belly!
