Texas Anglicans start judging the currents of the Tiber, prepare to swim accross to Rome!

(Journey In a Broken World; c.f. Catholic Culture; Dallas News)

Article by Marc Aupiais

A Conservative, and traditionalist- "Episcopal"(Anglican) diocese in Texas is preparing to allow large groups within to in a structured manner- enter the Catholic church.

Ironically this is with their Bishop's approval, and more so is that some think this odd, and are quoted as though this weren't an obvious denial, or transfer of their stated faith.

A notation by inter-religious institute "First Things", recently stated that many conservative Protestants feel they have more in common with Conservative Catholics than with their own religion, so perhaps they believe the most Anglican thing to be is Catholic at a stage when the Anglicans further alter what they once believed true.

Just under a century ago- the Anglicans ("Lambeth Conference") were apparently the first church to permit contraception.

Anglicans have always stated they are "Reformed Catholics", but mostly this is said as though they had found better pastures- this particular church group is one vote away from a sort of incorporation into Mother Church, we wish them good luck and God speed in this!
