  • A presentment against ACNA Bishop Bill Atwood

    A presentment against ACNA Bishop Bill Atwood

    It has come to my attention that a presentment was filed against ACNA Bishop Bill Atwood that to my knowledge has never been publicly announced.

  • Another update on Bishop Todd Atkinson

  • ACNA: Who Will be the Next Archbishop?

    ACNA is about to choose its next Archbishop (Put more precisely, the ACNA College of Bishops is about to choose him). Since ACNA is tiny compared to the Roman Catholic Church, we do not have a plethora of websites like Whispers in the Loggia or papers like this one speculatng on whom the next Archbishop…
