Mark Thompson... if the cap fits then wear it!

Mark Thompson refutes a quote made in a new book to be released about Sydney Anglicans! Sydney Anglicans, always ultra-conservative in terms of liturgy, theology and personal morality, have increasingly modelled themselves on sixteenth century English Puritanism. Over the past few decades, they have added radical congregationalism to the mix ... they have become prominent in the leadership of the global movement that is threatening worldwide Anglican unity. Mark implies the book is about congregationalism, and I thought the book would be about the immoral strategies used by senior Calvinists to maintain power and control within the Diocese, by aligning itself with third world countries that promote misogyny and homophobia. Mark doesn't want to identify the author or promote the book but 'good on' Muriel Porter for having the guts to write Sydney Anglicans and the Threat to World Anglicanism. The Sydney Experiment.
