Lambeth sees AMIE less as friend than foe
Lambeth Palace has issued this statement about AMiE, which suggests the powers that be are distinctly pissed off. I am a little concerned that a teensy part of me is thinking "serves you right"; in spite of the glacial tone of the piece there is still an implicit pleading and pandering in the comments about how the good intentions to work within the existing structures are "welcome". The Church of England has gone down the path of appeasing those who have never had any intention of compromise. Lambeth does not seem to have learnt the lesson that if you will tiptoe cautiously around pandering to the bullies, you shouldn't be surprised when they reward you by turning up in your back yard brandishing a crowbar.
