For the past two days, conservative activist the Rev. Chris Sugden, who for some reason has a press credential, even though he was among the organizers of GAFCON, has organized an afternoon press conference to conflict with the Episcopal Church’s regularly-scheduled afternoon press conference. Yesterday he featured Bishop Peter Beckwith of Springfield and today his guest was Bishop Keith Ackerman of Quincy. So the media has heard–at length–from two men who, between them, don’t represent a majority of the Episcopalians in the state of Illinois.
I have to admit that I am surprised that Sugden hasn’t yet rolled out less marginal spokesmen.
