Gomez and GAFCON

Laurie Goodstein reports today that Archbishop Drexel Gomez of the West Indies, head of the team drafting the proposed Anglican covenant, was denied a visa to attend the pre-GAFCON strategy session in Jordan. Two questions, why was he denied a visa? and why was a man in his diplomatically sensitive position attending a meeting of schismatic wannabes?

Gomez has refused, to this point, to take part in the upcoming meeting of Anglican provinces of the Americas scheduled for February in Costa Rica, perhaps because he doesn’t like the company. Yet this is the second major Akinolist event in which he has been an enthusiastic participant. How much longer will Archbishop Rowan Williams let a man so obviously devoted to the schismatic faction lead the effort that purports to hold the Communion together?
