The Network Bishops' statement:
...It is our intention not only to point to the inadequacies of the General Convention’s responses, but to declare to our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the Communion that we continue as The Episcopal Church in this country...who desire to be fully a constituent member of the Anglican Communion...Translation: "See, we told you we were the real Anglicans. Now give them the boot so we can take over." As I said, this was the game plan all along.
...We will take counsel together to fulfill our service on behalf of faithful Anglicans...we seek the support of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Primates and Bishops of the Anglican Communion...
I wonder how many months ago this statement was written?
