In light of yesterday's decision by the U.S. House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church to permit the ordination those in active same-sex relationships, is schism within the Anglican Communion inevitable? The Anglican bishop of Durham (England not NC) and Scripture scholar N.T. (Tom) Wright thinks so. He weighs in on Fulcrum. At the center of this debate is Bishop V. Gene Robinson, whose consecration as bishop in 2003 started this firestorm within the Communion. Last year GQ (of all places) ran a good profile of Robinson. Stay tuned. I'm waiting to hear what our British blogger Austen Ivereigh has to say about all this.
