Dublin primates meeting marks an ‘end to the communion as we know it’

The Reverend George Conger offers “Dublin primates meeting marks an ‘end to the communion as we know it’: The Church of England Newspaper, Feb 4, 2011“.

Even if you are not Anglican, please read.  It serves as a direct warning against ‘an ecclesiology where “we are all friendly and we do good works, but we need not share commonly recognized forms of belief and practice,”’ Folks, that’s pluralism, relativism, and what I call “selective hyperculturalism”.

To be where “we need not share commonly recognized forms of belief and practice” is to be nowhere, man*.

* (from The Beatles’ 1965 album Rubber Soul,  Nowhere Man)

He’s a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.

Doesn’t have a point of view,
Knows not where he’s going to,
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
