The Bishop of Alabama

The Rt. Rev. Henry Parsley has written to this diocese. He says in part: “It became clear to the bishops gathered at Camp Allen that the proposal of the Primates to establish a Pastoral Council, including appointed bishops from outside our church, to provide oversight within the Episcopal Church is not compatible with our polity. This pastoral scheme outlined in the Communiqué is not workable within our Constitution and Canons, and it was important for us to say this forthrightly.”

Bishop Parsely attended the second of the “Camp Allen” meetings, but he doesn’t sound here like a man interested in alternative oversight. If he ever was.
