The Associated Press is overplaying the hell out of this story, as I was afraid they might. No mention of the fact that the Akinolites have pulled this maneuver before, or that this time only half as many Primates joined in their refusal to gather at God’s Table.
If they are wise, and we are lucky, this article will be improved by updates.
UPDATE: The most recent version includes a critical voice (mine, as it happens) but still overplays the significance of this event.
Also, please read Jan Nunley’s item on the very curious interpretation the Aki-lytes have applied to the Scriptures cited in their statement.
