The Daft Covenant

Malcom French over at Simple Massing Priest recalls Aesop's fable about the frogs who desire a king for all of those who so yearn for an Anglican Covenant. He illustrates it with the above. It's going on my sidebar with a link.

A tip of the Anglo -Catholic biretta to Mimi.

I see no point to the Anglican Covenant except to punish the North American Churches for acting on their consciences. The proposed "Daft Covenant' (TM Tobias Haller+) will be the most radical and divisive thing to happen to Anglicanism since Oliver Cromwell first rode into London.

I once heard an Irish Catholic priest remark that in the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the Church always plays the role of the Older Brother.
