Inside LEAC

As y'all may know, I work part-time as editor of The Witness, a magazine with a couple of my favorite taglines: "An Anglican voice since 1917" (it started as a print journal way back then, and has been in continuous operation in print, online, or both since) and "a feisty and opinionated journal." I've posted an article there that those of you who follow Anglican news may find particularly interesting.

Remember that anonymous survey sent out a few weeks ago to every member of the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church asking them how, if they had it to do over, they'd vote in an EXTRA-SUPER-SECRET ballot on consent to +Gene Robinson's consecration? And how everyone was puzzling about how retired Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey ended up writing a letter endorsing it? I went to an organizational meeting of the group responsible for the survey -- a group calling itself "Lay Episcopalians for the Anglican Communion" -- and found out some interesting things.

The article is called "Inside LEAC." Please do check it out.

Actually, I did read it, linked to it by Thinking Anglicans. I liked it, and it basically confirmed what I thought, except Brother Ince was clearly more polite in public than I had expected.

You and others might be interested in this blog posting: http://magicstatistics.com/2006/03/31/ecusa-survey-results-released/. The author is a statistician and an Episcopalian, and he's been commenting on the survey, especially about poor method and probably useless results - unless your intended use is to have some numbers to sound important.

LEAC's survey very well may be statistically invalid - but do folks really think that the majority of Episcopalians would rather have homosexual bishops than be in the Anglican Communion? This really isn't about homosexuality a all, its about the hijacking of a denomination. I think that the vast majority of Episcopalians feel that the leadership of ECUSA has taken a step that places the very foundation of our communion in peril and should reverse course - if they even know this is going on at all.
