UPDATE: Stuff (NZ media site) offers an article on reactions to a Catholic video being endorsed here by the local hierarchy. Observe the pressure points: Catholics want to teach (perhaps a little more publicly than everyday pastoral encounters) what Catholic teaching prescribes; the gay community at large and Catholic gays protest at the unreasonableness of the teaching and the potential, circulation of the video has, for making a difficult experience (relative to the majority straight world) more painful. One point about our Anglican fudge, despite the critics and mockers from around the world, is that it gives expression to two strong but opposing convictions held within our own community. One observation to make about those critics and mockers who think we should hold out for teaching more or less in tune with Catholic teaching is that it does extremely little to foster communication and relationship with one whole community in our society. Is it 'gospel' living to be a church which can converse with all other sectors of society except one?
ORIGINAL: Around the Anglican world, not all Anglicans are happy with us folks Down Under. Why, even some of the folks Down Under are not happy.

ADDED: Some interesting comments emerging on Taonga.
ADDED: For someone so keen to expose 'Apostles of Hate' there are some words in this post which do not invoke the description 'Blogger of Love'. Put this post together with comments on Taonga (to date) and you see why we are a church of Two Integrities!
Not forgetting our blogging bishops Kelvin Wright and Jim White (actually, no comments there at the time of linking ... perhaps you could comment, but Jim's comment is worth reading).
Last but not least ('cos it is NZ's number one religious blog and regularly 6th/7th-ish most popular of all our blogs), Bosco Peters.
