Letters to AO

EVERY WEEK WE PUBLISH a selection of letters we receive in response to something you've read at Anglicans Online. Stop by and have a look at what other AO readers are thinking.

Alas, we cannot publish every letter we receive. And we won't publish letters that are anonymous, hateful, illiterate, or otherwise in our judgment do not benefit the readers of Anglicans Online. We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters. We edit letters to conform with standard AO house style for punctuation, but we do not change, for example, American spelling to conform to Canadian orthography. On occasion we'll gently edit letters that are too verbose in their original form. Email addresses are included when the authors give permission to do so.

If you'd like to respond to a letter whose author does not list an email, you can send your response to Anglicans Online and we'll forward it to the writer.

Letters from 18 to 24 May 2009

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters are the opinions of the writers and not Anglicans Online. We publish letters that we think will be of interest to our readers, whether we agree with them or not. If you'd like to write a letter of your own, click here.

And you even know that we're AO, not AOL

Just to let you know, grace and love does flow through circuits and keyboards. I have been reading AO for 11 years and it does show.

Thank you and God bless you in your work.

Bendiciones a todo

Los anglicanos de habla hispana cada día somos más a nivel mundial, especialmente en América Latina. Pero cuando buscamos cosas de interés en internete, casi todas ellas están en inglés.

La Iglesia Católica Romana estuvo por años usando el latín como lengua sagrada y el anglicanismo sigue utilizando mayoritariamente el inglés. Es cierto que la mayoría de anglicanos en el mundo usan este idioma, pero también es importante que en cada una de las páginas haya una sección en castellano o un traductor incorporado que pueda facilitar su lectura.

Recursos como Anglican Online debería estar al alcance todo los hablantes españoles, así como a los hablantes de otras lenguas.

Por lo demás, me gustaría felicitarles encarecidamente por el trabajos que venís haciendo. Ruego al Señor que les bendiga para podáis continuar. Bendiciones a todo el equipo de Anglican Online.

Caveat emptor

I am writing to inform visitors to this site about a vendor listed on your site. I would caution readers to not patronize the online merchant xxxxxxxxx. This company has numerous complaints filed against it with the Better Business Bureau for a variety of reasons. I personally experienced a lack of delivery of a xxxx. The xxxx was $100 and I never received the order. xxxx assured that it would be delivered in time for the communion, that was 4 weeks ago and I have still not received it. She is now not responding to the Better Business Bureau about my complaint and the compaint is to be closed because of her lack of response.

It's is a shame that someone can take advantage of someone especially over such an item .

(Editor: We will contact the Better Business Bureau ourselves, and if they verify your claim, we'll reprint your letter with the redacted material included and either remove or annotate our listing of this vendor. Thank you for letting us know and thank you for understanding that we don't consider it appropriate to identify the vendor in public until we have doublechecked your claim.)
