The House of Bishops report: the Anglo-Catholic tradition – Bishop of Chichester

My Christian identity lies in the Anglo-Catholic tradition which continues to sustain and challenge me. From its outset in the 19th century there was widespread suspicion about this subversive movement. Its theological expression in ritualism was regarded as un-Anglican, unlawful and unhealthy. Today’s terminology surrounding gender and sexual orientation might not have been used then, but the issues were clearly recognised, feared and denounced.

    Does Bishop Warner believe that Article 9 is true – that we are all born with a nature that is inclined to evil and we all face God’s wrath and condemnation from birth onwards?
