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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 20 December 2010 to 2 January 2011

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.

Missing the back story?

I am a little concerned about your 'headline' in the news section, 'Ballarat bishop a sore loser'. This seems to have been made without any reference to reality or truth.

It is true to say that the Courier managed to totally 'misinterpret' the Bishop's final service, but that was to be expected. I would expect you to at least check to see if what you are repeating is honest before you do so; to claim that that is what the Courier said is not adequate. I would not expect you to understand what has been going on in this tiny diocese, or the relationship between the local paper and the church.

To make make your 'headline' be as it was is unworthy, unless you believe that what is printed in papers must be true. You have hurt the reputation of someone, without trying to find the truth, and that I find more than sad.
