Anglo-Catholics prepare for a parting of the ways
Proper Anglo-Catholics — the Forward in Faith crowd, not the Vichyite Affirming “Catholics”.
Andrew Burnham’s right (‘ways that allow us to bring our folk with us’). RC national parishes (part of Pope Benedict’s Catholic revival) are their only future in England.

From Damian Thompson who’s also right but no EWTN Pollyanna:
I can understand why many Anglo-Catholics feel queasy at the thought of joining... The RC representatives at the General Synod tend to side with the liberal Anglicans against the Anglo-Catholics.
The old boomers still running things are really Protestants.

The Pope’s got an Augean stable-cleaning to do to make this potential move work. Thompson thinks he’s got the ACs’ back.
