This is sort of a continuation of a theme Mark Harris posted on his blog, ammended with comments added by a conservative named Phil... It's how I see the listening process.
Orthodoxy and Revisionist walk to the center of the stage from opposite sides of the room. Both men are wearing boxing gloves and headgear.
Orthodoxy: You aren't Christian!" Swings at Revisionist.
Revisionist: ducking We're listening. Why not?
Orthodoxy: Swings again. You are glorifying sexual immorality! You are allowing people who chose to be homosexuals to be bishops!
Revisionist: gets hit in the mid section. Oof! We hear you, but we disagree. We don't believe it is a choice.
Orthodoxy: hits Revisionist in the nose. But the Bible says it is! You are going against 2000 years of Church teachings!
Revisionist: Ouch. We believe that "love thy neighbor as thyself" trumps that. We feel the Holy Spirit is moving us into a direction of love and understanding. Haven't you read Galatians 5?
Orthodoxy: Swings again. We don't believe you! It is immoral and icky! We're leaving!
Revisionist: ducking again. But we can make accomodations for you! The Anglican Communion is big enough for all of us!
Orthodoxy: kicks Revisionist in the groin. We don't want that! We are the right church! You aren't Christian!
Revisionist: jumps back. Where have we heard that? But we are the right church too! One body, many parts?
Orthodoxy: punches Revisionist in the face again. We're taking the buildings!
Revisionist: suddenly angry, swings at Orthodoxy. That's IT! If you want to go, FINE! But for heaven's sake, leave the buildings!
Orthodoxy: throws himself on the floor, crying. No fair! You aren't being inclusive! Why won't you listen to us?
