It was a good essay/speech. I totally agree that we must return to the scriptures, and the traditional Book of Common Prayer as our ultimate authority. Although, I find it hard to believe that he supports the ordination of female priests---which is quite at odds with numerous scriptures. The BCP is nearly 500 years old, and reflects 1,500 years of previous doctrine & teaching in light of a necessary reliance on the scriptures themselves. I persoanlly agree we should remain true to the BCP. I am always troubled by the disturbing trend in the Continuum of many priests placing various Missals & formularies ahead of the BCP in importance.
