Heresy and Schism

One of the tactics of revisionists in the TEC and ghe Anglican Communion is to argue that schism is worse than heresy because schism tears the body of Christ.

Uh, excuse me, but heresy is a schismatic act. The heretic who embraces a view that is separate from the whole is schismatic. One who espouses an idiosyncratic view and teaches/practices it as a public and authorized view/practice of the church is not being catholic. To undermine catholicity is rent asunder the boy of Christ.

Can we please keep things straight!!

Holy King Solomon, Batman! Still, it's good to know *somebody* out there still acknowledges that Jesus was male. :)~
