I was over at Titusonenine catching up on all the convention news when this selection from a Chicago Tribune article caught my eye:

“Many leaders said the weeklong convention did not allow enough time to ponder the [Windsor] report.”

This illustrates one of the greatest practical problems of the Episcopal Church. The Lambeth Commission on Communion issued the Windsor Report in October of 2004–that’s almost two years ago for the less calendrically astute among us. When it was issued it was not simply published and put on a dusty shelf somewhere, but disseminated via PDF format through multiple internet sites… anyone who says that haven’t had time to “ponder” it is completely inept and shouldn’t be at the General Convention to start with–if they’re a Bishop they should be removed from their post and replaced. This is complete silliness.
