It's on.

World Anglicans have given their American brethren, the Episcopal bishops, until Sept 30 to change policy on practicing gays and lesbians in church office. In its current meeting, the Episcopalian bishops have refused. Stay tuned. Story here from NYT.
September 30 is the deadline the Anglican global bishops gave the Episcopal Church to repent of its endorsement of same-sex practice. In advance of that deadline, the Diocese of Pittsburgh has begun a process that could enable it to maintain ties to world-wide Anglicanism even if the Episcopal Church fails to repent. Story here from the American Anglican Council.

American Christianity has always had a certain arrogence toward third-world Christians. Perhaps Pittsburghers will show some humility. See earlier post.
