Philippines just say no to the Anglican Covenant

 For those of you who are sufficiently dull to be interested in the Anglican Communion in the face of panic on the streets of the UK, it appears that the Philippine Council of Bishops has just voted against the Anglican Covenant, describing it as "un-Anglican" in creating a Standing Committe as a Supreme Court against the principle of the autonomous nature of each Anglican Province.

Bishop Malecdan said, “We recognised that Anglicans have many disagreements as a Communion but we still can be agreeable to one another. We can still move towards reconciliation as sisters and brothers as a gift of God to us by persistently talking about our differences."

Amen to that!
