End of Anglo-Catholic Movement

~from CWN

The "Catholic movement" among Anglicans has come to an end, a former Episcopalian bishop has told an Episcopalian news service.

Former Bishop Clarence Pope, who recently announced his return to the Roman Catholic Church, told the newsletter The Living Church that "political correctness" had triumphed over tradition within the Anglican communion.

"Without the stable center provided by the Holy See of Peter," Bishop Pope told The Living Church, "the Catholic movement within the church will ultimately die away." Even today, he said that Anglo-Catholic impulses were not producing more than "lots of 'catholic' vestments" in Episcopal circles.
