I wonder if the bishops have concluded "Anglo-Catholic" is oxymoronic: that you can be one or the other but not both without making fatal compromises.

Will our Anglo-Catholic bishops cause the flow to become a torrent?

I know, it's impossible, just the product of a fervid imagination. Still . . .
