Jack the Ripper Quotes



I am not going to engage in an argument about canons etc. It is now a part of church process - and I hope that process recognizes it for what will serve no useful purpose, and has no real basis, and makes recommendation to the PB that it be dropped. We have had great restraint in not filing presentments over canonical violations since my case was dismissed. The ECW and others did not file against those who were in violation of canons. At the GC [1997] in Philadelphia, behind the scenes there was an attempt to pass something that exempted the Bishops of the Dioceses that did not ordain women (attempt made by them) and it did not work. I note particularly that charges against me and against Drew Smith came out of the same right wing matrix that was seeking such exemption for their own point of view. This is really a messy situation and I believe it will get messier now.
