No bishops singled out

Although his take makes it seem otherwise, the real news in George Conger’s story today is that the letter Rowan was supposedly writing to recalcitrants is actually going to ALL attendees. No one is being singled out. And look how many attendees there are:

Approximately 600 of the Communion’s 716 diocesan and 171 suffragan and assistant bishops have stated they would attend Lambeth, and more responses are expected to arrive in the coming weeks, a member of the conference team said.

Of diocesans that’s 84 percent already.

As to what the letter will say, until we see the letter there is no way of knowing that it commits an attendee to accept anything in particular.
