Yep, no sign of Katharine Jefferts Schori in New York this past week. Apparently she fled to the other side of the country. But have no fear, Benedict was here and he had a few things to say about the “splintering” of Christian churches over “so-called prophetic actions that are based on a hermeneutic not always consonant with the datum of Scripture and Tradition.”
Now who do we think he’s talking about here?
Such “so-called prophetic actions” cause Christian communities to “give up the attempt to act as a unified body, choosing instead to function according to the idea of ‘local options,'” Benedict said, and as such lose their connections to Christians in other times and places.
No wonder Schori skipped town.
