Falling Apart - Christianity Today Magazine

What's "falling apart" is the Protestant Episcopal Church of the USA, which is in essence the Province of America in the Anglican Communion. And why? Thank the current Primate of America, that is to say the Presiding Bishop of the PECUSA, The Right Reverend Ms. Katherine Jefferts Schori. A woman bishop is bad enough--but to bring extra-biblical mysticism into a sermon is simply not becoming an overseer of God's flock. A large number of parishes--and dioceses--have announced their desire to have arch-episcopal oversight from a different primate.

Will the Archbishop of Canterbury finally move to appoint another Primate of America and organize a rival Province? Stay tuned. (Not that it makes all that much difference to this independent Baptist.)
