The C of E: of course the Catholic world is unanimous
First Fr Jeffrey Steel writes:
Not too long ago I was asked by a Roman Catholic priest from Australia who was an Anglican convert if I believed the Church of England was a Protestant denomination with catholics in it or a Catholic denomination with Protestants in it. I believe I may have my answer now to that question.
The answer to Walter Cardinal Kasper’s recent question.
Such a decision signifies a breaking away from the apostolic tradition maintained by all of the Churches since the first millennium.
— Rome via Cardinal Kasper on Vatican Radio
This decision is of course painful in the inter-Christian dialogue, as it is further alienating the Anglican community from the Apostolic tradition.

The decision was predictable because the tendency of total liberalization unfortunately dominates in many Christian churches, including the Anglican community.
— Fr Igor Vyzhanov, secretary of the Department for External Church Relations of the Russian Orthodox Church

Update: A lively conversation with Derek and friends.
