The Bloviated Blogger from the Midwest, given half the chance would set back ecumenical dialog fifty years! The post below shows us all how living a semi-eremetical life without the actual calling to do so becomes so very detrimental to ones emotional and psychological state. Please! Move in to a rectory, make some friends, do some actual parochial ministry. Heaven knows we're extremely short handed. Place him under a good old fashioned pastor, and let him work out his salvation in service to the Church. (maybe preaching at the weekly FOLK MASS!)
Or perhaps Bishop Dick Lennon of Cleveland can use him as a pastor in one of the churches he wants to close.
After a month of Mister Zzzzzzzzzzz,
I'll bet my purple pipping those pews empty
My comments are in blue.
England is clearly a misogynistic waging a war on women. This must be true because the official state church of England has rejected women bishops. Snarky, angry baiting statement made in hope of boosting his donations from the anti-ecumenist fringe SSPX sympathizers who read his rag.

General Synod Rejects Draft Legislation on Women Bishops
And drawing nigh he said: Wilt thou destroy the just with the wicked? 24 If there be fifty just men in the city, shall they perish withal? and wilt thou not spare that place for the sake of the fifty just, if they be therein? 25 Far be it from thee to do this thing, and to slay the just with the wicked, and for the just to be in like case as the wicked, this is not beseeming thee: thou who judgest all the earth, wilt not make this judgment. 26 And the Lord said to him: If I And in Sodom fifty just within the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake. 27 And Abraham answered, and said: Seeing I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord, whereas I am dust and ashes. 28 What if there be Ave less than fifty just persons? wilt thou for five and forty destroy the whole city? And he said: I will not destroy it, if I find five and forty. 29 And again he said to him: But if forty be found there, what wilt thou do? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of forty. 30 Lord, saith he, be not angry, I beseech thee, if I speak: What if thirty shall be found there? He answered: I will not do it, if I And thirty there. 31 Seeing, saith he, I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found there? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. 32 I beseech thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more: What if tell should be found there ? And he said: I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. 33 And the Lord departed, after he had left speaking to Abraham: and Abraham returned to his place.20 November 2012The General Synod of the Church of England has voted to reject the draft legislation to allow women to become bishops. [A move that would have made them them even more of a laughingstock for real Churches, with actual Apostolic Succession and valid Orders.] Is it really necessary to denigrate an entire faith body, though certainly imperfect, which certainly counts many honorable, charitable and intelligent individuals within its ranks? There are many in the Church of England that preach the Gospel seeking to win souls. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you.
Under the requirements of the Synod the legislation required a two-thirds majority in each of the three voting houses for final draft approval. Whilst more than two thirds voted for the legislation in both the House of Bishops (44-03) and the House of Clergy (148-45), the vote in favour of the legislation in the House of Laity was less than two-thirds (132-74). The vote in the House of Laity fell short of approval by six votes. [Would this have needed to go to the Queen for approval, as head of the Church of England?] Does it matter? Glory be to God! The measure FAILED! Obviously God has not withdrawn His grace fully from the the C of E.
They should in that emergency session immediately pass the provisions of Romanorum coetibus.
In total 324 members of the General Synod voted to approve the legislation and 122 voted to reject it.
The consequence of the “no” vote of terminating any further consideration of the draft legislation means that it will not be possible to introduce draft legislation in the same terms until a new General Synod comes into being in 2015, unless [Ooops! A loop-hole!] the ‘Group of Six‘ (the Archbishops, the Prolocutors [Would that be prolocútors or prolócutors?] and the Chair and Vice Chair of the House of Laity) give permission and report to the Synod why they have done so.
Speaking after the vote the Rt Revd Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, said: “A clear majority of the General Synod today voted in favour of the legislation to consecrate women as Bishops. But the bar of approval is set very high in this Synod. [Unbelievable.] I'm sure its not as high as the bar set for ordination in the Suburbicarian Diocese of Velletri-Segni, but I digress..... Two-thirds of each house has to approve the legislation for it to pass. This ensures the majority is overwhelming. The majority in the house of laity was not quite enough. This leaves us with a problem. 42 out of 44 dioceses approved the legislation and more than three quarters of members of diocesan synods voted in favour. There will be many who wonder why the General Synod expressed its mind so differently. [In every war there is the "fog of war".] In every blog there is a FOG of blog-- like a mist of feces taurus to confuse and disorient readers.
“The House of Bishops recognises that the Church of England has expressed its mind that women should be consecrated as bishops. There is now an urgent task to find a fresh way forward to which so many of those who were opposed have pledged themselves.” ["It's not our fault! We tried! We really did!"] A cry the Bishop of Velletri-Segni hears often from this blogger.
The House of Bishops of the Church of England will meet at 08.30am on Wednesday morning in emergency session [Ooooo!] to consider the consequences of the vote.
Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity. More snide snark to close out the tirade of this self important ignoramus.
IMAGINE! A man too obnoxious to fit in within the walls of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei-- talk about a low bar to limbo under there friends! IMAGINE if he worked in the Pontifical Commission for Promoting Christian Unity! Good heavens! The Vatican City would be at war! Free speech is guaranteed to US citizens, not to do-nothing internet presbyters incardinated, but not living in the Suburbicarian Diocese of Velletri-Segni. Will someone write to this guys bishop and shut him up! Or at least restrict his topics to cooking and obscure rubrics of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
