ACNA'09: FROM MY EAR TO YOURS....
By David W. Virtue in Bedford, Texas

Rumors abound that Ft. Worth Bishop Jack Leo Iker's long term goal is to take his diocese to Rome. Not true. Numerous sources have told VOL that he is deeply committed to the new North American Anglican Province and he will work with his fellow bishops over the thorny issue of women's ordination.

A number of his Ft. Worth priests were recently seen at the Anglican Use conference in Houston. He has told them that if they want to go to Rome, they can do so, but they can't take their property with them.

One doesn't know where to start, does one?

To live in Rome or just to visit?

I thought the ACNA constitution & canons passed just this week specified clearly that parish property belongs to the parish. Is Iker already preparing to violate the C&Cs of his new "church"?

[Word thingy is "allaw" ;-)]

The ¨make them up as you go¨ rules are so confusing...what´s Jack Leo doing hanging out with the nest of Evo´s at Bedford anyway?

Certainly, Southern Conealone isn´t very ¨Catholic¨ and then there are all those emotiondriven CANA/Anglican Mission in America folks to dodge as they froth to and fro.

Honest, I´m trying to follow the bouncing balls!

Well, well, well. Should I laugh, or just sit here and think, "shut my mouth!" What the heck. I'll laugh.

Of course, the idea that the local RC diocese will let any Anglican church stay in place - with no changes except the sign out front - THAT is pretty funny, too.

The hypocrisy of the Rev. Iker boggles the mind, doesn't it? It amazes me that lightning (with the Lord's help) hasn't struck him down already.

Once you understand that Iker really believes that the bishop is the sole and absolute authority of the diocese and that he *is* the church Catholic there, then it all becomes clear. It all belongs to him and he can do whatever he wants.

Sick, very sick.
