I'm an Episcopalian. I grew up Southern Baptist, and still love that Faith Tradition. But I also very much love the Liturgy, and find the Prayer Book a wonderful comfort. That's part of why this story by Dr. Mullen (Dr Mullen is the rector of St. Michael's, Cornhill, in the City of London and chaplain to the London Stock Exchange) so deeply disturbing. The current Archbishop of Canterbury is an evangelical, and relatively conservative. It's apparent this new nominee will further divide the Anglican Communion.

For those who aren't privy to this family fight, a little explanation.
The Episcopal Church is primarily a very Liberal denomination. Many bishops and rectors jettisoned The Faith long ago, and embraced a fuzzy form of Christianity that leaves Christ out.

The denomination's most famous representative is John Shelby Spong. The link will take you to a critique of his theology from Probe. He is, in this writer's opinion, a heretic. .

There is in the Episcopal Church a guerilla war. Conservative Evangelicals are working hard to bring about change. We have looked to the Archbishop of Canterbury for some inspiration, or at least knowledge that attack will not come from that quarter. That may change, if Dr. Mullen is correct. I fear he is.
