Today, the Director of Communications for the AMiA, the Reverend Cynthia Brust, saw fit to put together a press release expressing outrage over yesterday’s Anglican TV episode that mentioned the internal turmoil of the organization. As organizations in this situation usually do, the statement questions the motives of the reporters and the sources of their information. It sort of reminds you of Herman Cain, attacking Rick Perry and the media for his problems.
Unfortunately for Reverend Brust, three clergy from AMiA churches who were at the meetings in question issued an article that seems to validate everything Anglican TV reported. So now rather than throwing around phrases like “unnamed sources that can only be considered as propagating unfounded rumors”, theAM will have to deal with what is actually going on, rather than who said what to whom and why did they say it?
Knuckleheads like me are left to wonder what prompted this faux outrage from Pawley’s Island? Could it be that they didn’t want any of their plans leaked until the concrete was poured and the new structure was a fait accompli?
Rev. Brust says that “Anglican Mission leadership has been considering a proposal centering on formalizing a missionary society, discussing this proposal widely in an ordered and sequential way.” If this is the case, then the folks at Pawley’s shouldn’t be unhappy with the “proposal” being discussed a bit more widely, although not in perhaps as orderly a fashion as they had hoped for.
