A sermon, preached by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori at Christ Church Cathedral in New Orleans forcing people to reflect on the continuing witness in the Episcopal Church to its so called "antiracism" agenda, stirred anger among a number of clergy and laity, creating, they say, further racial division.
"Our experience confirms that Episcopalian antiracism is just the systemization of racial spoils. It's the same old money grubbing race card. It's Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton's game, but with the borrowed dignity of Anglican nuance and finesse. It's TEC's institutionalization of the social justice work done by Officers of Diversity and Inclusion in our anti-white universities, businesses, and governments," they wrote in an e-mail to VOL.
