The Pontificator goes on to discuss the Orthodox and Protestant (Anglican) reactions to the document:
If Anglicanism is truly guided by the patristic interpretation of Scripture, as Bishop Andrewes long ago claimed, then we must advance the ecclesial principle with the same meaning and intent as the Church Fathers. But in fact we do not and never have. Anglicans do not claim to be the Catholic Church in an exclusive salvific sense. We are a part of the catholic Church; we are not the catholic Church. On this point Anglicans have long enjoyed consensus. . . .
As Stephen Sykes notes, Anglicans cannot and do not claim that their bishops are the true centers of unity in the Church because Anglicans cannot and do not profess that they are the Church in an exclusive sense: “Since the Anglican church has never claimed that in it alone is there to be found the fulness of the church, it follows that the theological interpretation of its episcopate is necessarily the interpretation of a partial and broken symbol of the continuity of faith.”
In light of which, The Pontificator concludes:
As one commentator on his blog asked the Pontificator: "Why call oneself an Anglican blogger and then denounce Anglicanism left and right?" -- to which he responded, "Why not?"
Here is a father who courageously told his own son this past April, " “There is no future for you and your future family in the Episcopal Church,” urging him to explore and read and pray. Nobody but God knows the inner movements of the soul and the promptings of the Spirit, but whenever I read Pontifications -- probably the finest Anglican blog on the 'net -- I get the sense that it is only a matter of time before he follows his son in "crossing the Tiber." Keep him in your prayers.
