Vaguely kind of related: the NCR on the perils of cultural androgyny.

:shock: wow.  That's gotta be a classic - gotta send that to Dr Dawg for his amusement.  It's so rightwing wrong, as well as fallacious and illogically argued but as an examplar of ideological turgidity, it's perfect.

The Vatican thirst for power divides Christianity and damages Catholicism

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree ... ism-church

excerpt:

But Pope Benedict is set upon restoring the Roman imperium. He makes no concessions to the Anglican communion. On the contrary, he wants to preserve the medieval, centralistic Roman system for all ages – even if this makes impossible the reconciliation of the Christian churches in fundamental questions.

excerpt:

Just as we have seen over many centuries – in the east-west schism of the 11th century, in the 16th century Reformation and in the First Vatican Council of the 19th century – the Roman thirst for power divides Christianity and damages its own church. It is a tragedy.

I'm noticing that my favorite ultra-traditionalist schismatics have NOTHING to say on the apostolic constitution.  Veeeery interesting.  Even if they eventually say something, why have they been stunned into silence for so long?

Consider Pope Maledict's allies.

Last Episcopal Holdout Ordains Female Priest
 
excerpt:
 
The other dioceses -- San Joaquin, Calif., and Fort Worth, Texas -- had also refused to ordain women, but conservatives in those dioceses, and the bishops who led them, have seceded from the Episcopal Church in the last three years. Remaining Episcopalians in those dioceses have since ordained women.

I was in Virginia in the 2000's several times, and one time I made a visit to VTS (Virginia Theological Seminary). A gorgeous structure. Today their chapel burned to the ground.
 
Virginia Theological Seminary Press Release
 
This afternoon, at 3:55 p.m., the Virginia Theological Seminary community became aware that the historic 129 year old Immanuel Chapel was on fire.
 
9‐1‐1 was immediately called, buildings were evacuated and the emergency services responded quickly and efficiently. It is clear that significant damage has occurred, including the loss of the stained glass windows and iconic words “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.”
 
“At this stage, the cause of the fire is unclear. The VTS Community is saddened and devastated by this catastrophe,” said the Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary, said, “The buildings nearby are intact and safe. The ministry and mission of VTS continue, even as the community grieves.”
 
Founded in 1823, Virginia Theological Seminary is the largest of the 11 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church. The school prepares men and women for service in the Church worldwide, both as ordained and lay ministers, and offers a number of professional degree programs and diplomas. Currently, the Seminary represents more than 40 different dioceses and nine different countries, for service in the Church.
