'Lambeth Palace are investigating the way the leader of The Episcopal Church was treated in Britain this week after Anglicans in the US have complained that she was forced to carry, rather than wear her mitre, at Southwark Cathedral,' we report. 'The Most Rev Katharine Jefferts Schori has described as “nonsense” and “bizarre” the edict from the Archbishop of Canterbury that forced her to hold her episcopal hat when she preached and presided at Holy Communion this week.'Hmm. So Lambeth Palace are investigating the Archbishop of Canterbury? Is that like Buckingham Palace investigating King George III?
Stirring the pot further our Ruth writes,
Apparently the question of the ACO budget is one of the issues on the agenda [of the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church] this week...Ellipse in the original.
As The Lead was first to report, the Secretary General of the ACO is meeting with The Episcopal Church. We now told by the Executive Officer to the Secretary General that, "The Secretary General has been invited to the meeting and he has accepted the invitation."
It is said Tallulah Bankhead told a male Episcopal priest at an Anglo-Catholic church in New York, "Darling, I love your gown but your purse is on fire."
