If you’re in need of yet another reason to finally and forever abandon Anglicanism, Ed Salmon, the dean of Nashotah House, a formerly “orthodox” Episcopal seminary, just provided you with an outstanding one:

Bishop [Jack] Iker has resigned as a trustee on the Nashotah House Board, where he has served for the past 21 years. This action was taken in protest of the Dean’s invitation to the Presiding Bishop of TEC to be a guest preacher in the seminary’s chapel.  Citing the lawsuits initiated by her against this Diocese, Bishop Iker notified the Board that he “could not be associated with an institution that honors her.” Similarly, Bishop [William] Wantland has sent notification that he “will not take part in any functions at Nashotah” nor continue “to give financial support to the House as long as the present administration remains.”  He is an honorary member of the Board (without vote) and a life member of the Alumni Association.

So far, there doesn’t seem to be any explanation on Nashotah’s web site for this bizarre invitation.  Which leads one to ask what the hell Ed Salmon was thinking.  Did Mrs. Schori make noises about seizing his pension or something?
