En interessanten Artikel iwwert de Versuch vun der kathoulescher Kierch fir die anglikanesch lo definitiv z’iwwerhuelen resp. ze ersetzen:
So the Roman Catholic Church is in a corner: its attempts to sell a desperately outdated product by concealing it in sumptuous packaging, with a garland of threats thrown in for good measure, are no longer paying sufficient dividends. The only tactic remaining to it is acquisition. If it cannot keep its own customers, it must poach its competitors’. And this gives the Church an edge on some of its competitors where recruitment is concerned: after all, where else can someone who thinks it is acceptable to discriminate on the grounds of gender or sexuality be not only tolerated but actively welcomed?
And so the Vatican’s acquisitive gaze has fallen on a competitor which is facing an even more dramatic decline, a church riven by internal conflict that threatens to tear it in two. The Anglican Church no longer has a clear sense of its corporate mission: it has a desperately disillusioned customer base, struggling to maintain a sense of identity whilst doing battle with deep divisions on two issues about which the Roman Catholic Church is unshakably united: the ordination of women, and the ordination of practicing homosexuals. Whilst Anglicans desperately try to find a bridge over this unbridgeable gap, the Roman Catholic Church has spotted the perfect business opportunity. What corporate baron would not leap at the chance to further weaken an ailing competitor by poaching its staff and customers? The response of Vatican Enterprises, Inc. was only to be expected.
Beim Blair huet et jo schon geklappt. Mee kee Wonner! Die anglikanesch Kierch ass jo en effet nëmmen nach en Häufchen Elend. Sie mengt et zwar gutt, ass fir d’Inclusioun vun de Fraen an den Homosexueller an der Hierarchie, ass relativ tolerant, etc mee dat ass net grad déi Zort Kierch, mat där konservativ, religéis Läit wëllen associéiert sinn! Déi iwwerliewt die nächst 50 Joër net.
