Statement from the No Anglican Covenant Coalition on the Primates Meeting

We're baaaack! And not because we were chomping at the bit for an opportunity to sound the alarm bells about the ill-fated Anglican Covenant. But the meeting that ended last week in England in which the Primates have--what is it now?--"strongly suggested," "desired," "petitioned?"--that the Episcopal Church be scolded for our inclusivity requires us to release the following statement from our expert leaders about this attempt to enact the Covenant by fiat. You can read it HERE

On this Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, let me just say that we in the Episcopal Church are going to continue standing for freedom, for justice, and for the love of Jesus Christ which is a love for ALL people. And in the words of the civil rights song:

Ain't gonna let nobody turn me around, turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let nobody turn me around
Keep on walkin' 
Keep on walkin'
Walkin' to the freedom land.
