Alice in Wonderland - or is that The Episcopal Church?

Excellent analysis by Kendall Harmon at early indications that TEC will attemp the Old "it depends on what the meaning of is is" trick and insist that same sex blessings does not mean same sex blessings. Read it all here.

Also, check out this discussion over at Stand Firm on 815's announcement that they will not suspend their lawsuits against the Virginia Churches, despite what the Anglican Primates Communique requests TEC to do to show faith.

Between the Diocese of Virginia's Protocol for Departing Churches and now the Anglican Primates Communique, how do we know when TEC makes an agreement it really is an agreement? When do we say "when?"

King of Hearts: What do you know about this unfortunate affair?
March Hare: Nothing.
Queen of Hearts: Nothing whatever?
March Hare: Nothing whatever!
Queen of Hearts: [shouts] That's very important! Jury, write that down!

Alice: `Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
Cheshire Cat:`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,'
Alice:`I don't much care where--'
Cheshire Cat:`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,'
Alice:`--so long as I get somewhere,'
Cheshire Cat:`Oh, you're sure to do that, if you only walk long enough.'

That! is the quote I was remembering and looking for and gave up to meet the boat heading for the land of Nod. And by all means the "you know nothing" part was not intended to point toward you, Kev. Thanks for the leading.

No worries, no offense taken. In my more Calvinistic moment I love a few lines latter:

`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

Slightly off my own rocker,
