A Group Without Portfolio


Dr. Ian R.K. Paisley

Even after the defeat of the international meeting of Anglican and Catholic bishops in Canada it has been decided to set up yet a another working group to foster Anglican-Catholic relations.

In the ‘Church of England’ newspaper of 9th February it was reported that a new high-level working group to bring Anglicans and Catholics together has been announced by the two churches. The group was established as a direct result of the international meeting of Anglican and Catholic Bishops in Mississauga, Canada, last May which was chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury (George Carey) and Cardinal Edward Cassidy, President of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.

This was a meeting that held no shame in announcing the proposal of the bringing of the Protestant church under the Bishop of Rome – THE POPE. The Free Presbyterian Church, and others, protested and issued statements in Canada.

The report further states that after a week of prayer worship and discussion the bishops concluded that Anglicans and Catholics share a degree of common faith ‘such that greater co-operation and mission is possible than is currently the case’. The working group is expected to hold its first meeting later in the year under the chairmanship of Bishop David Beetge, Anglican bishop of the Highveld, South Africa and Archbishop John Bathersby, Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane Australia.

Note that not all bishops have decided this, it is but a sector of bishops whose aim is to push and promote their personal beliefs, or should that be desires.

Such advocates could simply leave the church if they wanted to be under the Pope. As these people are allowed to continue and advertise these activities unchallenged it gives the impression that it is condoned and the more such ideas are indulged the worse and more extreme it can only become.

With apologies to Cole Porter:

In olden days a glimpse of mocking
Was looked on as something shocking
Now Rome knows
Anything Goes!
