The political arm of the Sydney Anglican Diocese, known as the Anglican Church League, held it's AGM... It's underlying purpose...to make sure that elitism and bigotry remains strong within the diocese...and that it continues to align itself with right wing Baptist mentality...because it sure isn't Anglican!

Anglican Church League AGM President, Gav Poole writes ...

March this year, the ACL hosted its own conference, ‘Is there a future for confessional Anglicanism?’ (a closed question with an obvious answer). I believe it was significant in restating that gospel confession is not just Christian but a rich part of our Anglican heritage. The gospel is the foundation of our denomination and a challenge for all Anglicans is to ensure that we are not moved from our foundations

HMMMMMM  Do you remember....

This year the ACL was the proud sponsor of the FCA Australian launch. There was a theological side to the conference (known as bigotry...ie how to keep the gays and feminists out of the church...here and world wide...and not to mention...how to excommunicate ex-cons... ) and a practical side ( political strategizing...because everyone knows Christ can't tolerate inclusiveness). 




HMMMMMMM do you remember the 1st GAFCON convention...
 
  • The membership taskforce continues to promote and recruit membership applicants. They have proved that the ol’ ACL can get with the technical times. A new state of the art database has been commissioned, which will be jointly managed by the members themselves, ensuring accurate and up-to-date information. (God loves technology more than people ...and let's not forget money!)
  • The communications taskforce has communicated the ACL’s activities with you. Their job is to ensure that you are not kept in the dark. (Keep the propaganda raging...Oh and let's not forget the indignance!)
  • The training taskforce ensures that we are not only recommending people for diocesan roles but supporting them. We can look forward to upcoming events. (Let's keep the status quo...new ideas may bring about compassion within the diocese....and let's not forget we need to ex-communicate those who don't repent by ACL standards)
During last year’s triennium elections three of our five contested elections were won, including all candidates for General Synod. At least ten vacancies were filled by new people but were uncontested. Four of these were on Standing Committee. The ACL was involved in all their nominations...(so the ACL can control the diocese )

And don't you love Gav's comments HERE ....
The Anglican Church League president, the Reverend Gav Poole, said that while he disagrees with the ''inevitable'' Church of England decision (to ordain women bishops), he admires its approach, which has made allowances for minorities who do not support the ordination of women.
England's decision came two years after a similar vote failed on grounds that it did not include provisions for those who in good conscience could not accept the leadership of a woman.
Echoing both sides of the ordination divide, any shift in local attitudes was likely to be a long way off, Mr Poole said.
''Sydney is known around the world for its evangelical character and its holding to the authority of the scriptures,'' he said. ''That's a long tradition here in Sydney and something we have always appreciated.''

Dah!....Well all's I can say to Gav is... what a shame Sydney Anglicans don't make allowances for minorities who in good conscience cannot accept bigotry and discrimination...and ...just who...has appreciated the long evangelical character of the Sydney Anglican diocese? Those who have benefited the most...or those who have gained notority from being a minister in the diocese, when in other walks of life they may be seen as attention seeking...or those masterminds who looked after the diocese's financial interests so well, that they took it upon themselves to be  leaders of the world ...or those expert theologians who know more than those who rely on scientific research  ...next Sydney Anglicans will be publishing books on Climate Change..We live in hope...anything  for a buck...I suppose!
