Exegesis, hermeneutics and your newspaper

The Associated Press is moving a story out of London by Robert Barr headlined: Leader of Anglicans urges coexistence. Contrast that with the Times of London’s: Gay clergy ultimatum set to split Anglicans. Then have a look at Daniel Burke’s story for Religion News Service: Williams lays out two-tier membership for Anglicans.

You can be excused for thinking that reporters one and three were not looking at the same document as number two.

Updated Wednesday morning with the Post, the NY Times and the Guardian.

I’m finding it useful to read the netire stories because even those that run with the most simplistic “split” angle have more nuanced things to say as they go along.

As always, Thinking Anglicans has an excellent round-up.
