Mouneer Learns Bitter Lesson from Windsor Process

[...] Mouneer was also critical of the presence of TEC's Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori saying that he and others were inhibited from speaking freely. "This was clear from the comments of some other members outside the meetings," he said.

"While the presence of the Presiding Bishop of TEC was important during discussions, her presence, as we decided about resolutions of assessment of the response of TEC, inhibited other members from speaking freely this was clear from the comments of some other members outside the meetings."

While Mouneer was extremely critical of the ecclesiastical politics going on within the inner sanctums of the Anglican Communion, the Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Peter F. Jensen, took a more aggressive posture and ripped the Episcopal Church saying repentance has not happened in The Episcopal Church and he was withdrawing his bishops from attending the Lambeth Conference.

"The decision of our Bishops not to attend the Lambeth Conference in 2008 is the culmination of ten years of thought, prayer and action. We have played our part in challenging false teaching and practice, always hoping that those who have flouted the strong position taken by the last Lambeth Conference would turn back in repentance. As part of this, we have developed strong fellowship links with the many Anglican Christians all over the world who feel as we do that the crisis over human sexuality is of momentous significance, and who are determined not to accept unbiblical teaching and sinful practice."
