Endanger? If anyone has been endangered it is the hundred of Americans in the Anglican Communion who suffered at the hands of tyrant bishops who have now fled the American Church. If anyone, more, has been endangered in the Communion - what about the hundreds and thousands of ANGLICANS who may perish in Uganda and other parts of the world for being LGBT? It is so nice to belong to a "communion" who has their priorities straight. What we need is a paradigm shift within the entire Communion! The American Church is leading the way - this IS our future. Thanks be to God!
