An analysis which I heard from my delegation, which

seems accurate to me, is that normally the moderates

in the middle vote with the left wing progressives

against the right wing orthodox. In this resolution,

however, the ends were played against the middle.

Neither the progressive left wing nor the orthodox

right wanted fudge: both have called for clarity one

way or the other. It was the moderates who wanted to

apologize without apologizing, to have their cake and

a chance, if the cards were skillfully played, to eat

it too. But they lost.

Despite the fact that I wanted the Episcopal Church to comply with Windsor and remain in the Anglican Communion, I’m thankful that people are at least seeking honesty–honesty in being wrong is better than lying about what one will or will not do in order to pacify others.
