Life. Death. And many things in between.
It's that old Luterine heresy at work again.
Uterine, Lutherine, Schmuterine...
Hey! Its the Anglican Church. You can get tired of the German wing of the Old Catholics and leave being tired of the Anglicans to us English. Unless, of course, the bit of Germany you come from is inhabited by Angles, rather than Saxons and Jutes (there were a few of them in Hamburg, weren't there), in which case I guess you are entitled. And Herr Doktor Sedgemore can chip in about Anglican crypto Baptists, about whom he owes me a proper explanation. (Only joking - life really is too short.)
The bit of Germany I come from is inhabited by sturdy hill-climbing and wood-chopping Bavarians. Well, Franconians. And my ancestors ultimately came from Thuringia, where they probably had come under the influence of Junker Jörg's great Reformation (I like to think that they were Jewish, but forced to convert for professional reasons. The name, "Morgenroth", suggests a mildly semitic heritage).But anyway, I think that a bit of the continental Lutheran upheaval would have done Albion good.Is Francis a Baptist? I didn't know. As in Anabaptist?
No, he's not a Baptist. But there was some discussion of crypto Baptists in the Church of England on his blog.It was in the thread that discussed the Seismic/Sizer contretemps.Anabaptists are specifically forbidden from belonging to the CfoE by one of its 39 rules, I think. Francis will know.
Aye, the Anabaptists will all burn in hell! This is the terrible fate that awaits all those who dare challenge divinely-sanctioned state power.
