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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 4 to 10 October 2010

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters express 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.

The evil be ever mingled with the good

I am reminded of the Articles of Religion, specifically number XXVI, which treats of the unworthiness of the Ministers, "which hindereth not the effect of the Sacraments."

And I do think that we need to be reminded of this, once in awhile.

Just who exactly is mad, here?

In your editorial of October 3, you said in a footnote "Perhaps someday there will be a madwoman who believes that she is a bishop, but so far no such person has come to our attention." Hasn't Mrs Katharine Schori come to your attention?

(Fictitious signature elided)

(Editor: Anglicans Online does not normally publish anonymous letters, but we figured that this one might make somebody giggle. The name and address given on the letter was obviously fictitious anyhow.)

Horizontal rule
Earlier letters

We launched our 'Letters to AO' section on 11 May 2003. All published letters are in our archives.
