The Lead describes ++Schori arriving in Australia and being treated as an 'equal' Primate by ++Aspinall, with the note 'whatever the sentiments of Archbishop of Sydney are on the matter'. The dig here is at Canterbury. Has Canterbury ever not treated ++Schori as an equal as a Primate? Read the item carefully: the Primate of Australia says she is welcome in his Diocese, Brisbane. He cannot say (a) she is welcome in Australia (because, as The Lead notes, she is not welcome as Primate in Sydney) and (b) she is welcome in Australia with the minor exception of Sydney, because Sydney is not a minor exception, being about half the Australian church. I suspect that there may be a (c), that she is not welcome in some other dioceses of the church. It does not appear that she is going anywhere than to the Brisbane Diocese, otherwise one would presume that a report in the Melbourne Anglican media would know of that. There is more chance of having a semblance of knowledge of our church by visiting Auckland and Christchurch than there is of knowing the Australian church by visiting just two of its dioceses, let alone one diocese.
Thinking Anglicans lines up a report on Anglicans objecting to the Covenant. The arguments proffered are simply outrageous about grabs for power by homophobic crazies. Then it mentions that Mexico has ADOPTED THE COVENANT. Mexico!! That is interesting. A neighbour on the doorstep of TEC has seen the light, ignored crazy arguments, and acted sensibly!
