R. J. Snell on the Triumph of Anglican Experience over Faith & Reason

By now the confused state of the Anglican Communion is rather obvious to anyone following our debates about homosexuality. Of course, Anglican confusion is hardly new, and we often joke among ourselves about our ability to muddle through, confident that our three-legged stool of Scripture, Tradition, and Reason will yet again hold up. But things seem different this time; the stool seems not broken so much as discarded and ignored, at least by some.

I’d suggest that a narrow focus on homosexuality is likely to miss the underlying cause of our confusion, something like watching your neighbors . . .
