Is Bishop Mathes playing a dangerous game?

Bishop Mathes of San Diego has put up a letter on his diocesan website that is now being picked up by the blogs that the Archbishop of the Southern Cone (who has received countless parishes and an entire Episcopal Diocese into his province) has allegedly apologized for the “incursions” into Bishop Mathes diocese. While it’s possible they may have had breakfast and it’s possible that Bishop Mathes wrote letters to Gregory Venables, what is absolutely clear is that Archbishop Venables is not apologizing for taking in Episcopal refugees into his province. He may not have the authority to control the flow of mail into South America, but he clearly knows which Episcopalians he takes in for refuge during this crisis and to whom he continues to offer pastoral care – even in San Diego. More later. Stay tuned.

PM UPDATE: Indeed, Archbishop Venables confirms that he apologized for not calling first, not for the “incursions” themselves. The Archbishop has posted at StandFirm here.
