Anglicans Gagged?

WOW. Lots has been happening this past weekended so we're skipping the pub this Sunday and talking about the Anglican church instead... We’ll be back with our $atterley $aga Pub Tests shortly. But first...

We’ve been told of extraordinary Anglican Church actions to SILENCE talk about North $toneville.

Yesterday we, respectfully and peacefully, handed out 300 flyers at the Anglican Annual Synod in Mt Claremont (attached to this post). Most knew about their Church’s dangerous and destructive North $toneville firetrap plan for 4,000+ people. Many were angry about the environmental and bushfire threats. And some offered to distribute flyers inside (legends!)

Today, we were told the Church CENSURED those distributing our flyers at Synod. AND, we were told today’s SCHEDULED session for Lay questions was CANCELLED, effectively gagging North $toneville discussion! (surely that's breaking their own rules?)

We’re writing to WA Archbishop Goldsworthy to clarify and ask • Are you gagging your congregation about North Stoneville? • Are you silencing your congregation’s concerns? • What are you afraid they might say?

In the wise words of the Anglican’s World leader, Archbishop of Canterbury: “I think we have to be open to hearing things we really dislike...” (UK’s ‘Church Times’, March 31)

And MASSIVE shout-out to our generous supporters for donating much needed campaign funds! Our community is outstanding!
