Schism

Looks like it finally has happened:


Jerusalem -- Just minutes ago, conservative Anglicans announced what they are calling "The Jerusalem Declaration," which states their intention to erect a new "fellowship of confessing Anglicans."

From their statement:

[W]e grieve for the spiritual decline in the most economically developed nations, where the forces of militant secularism and pluralism are eating away the fabric of society and churches are compromised and enfeebled in their witness... Sadly, this crisis has torn the fabric of the Communion in such a way that it cannot simply be patched back together.

All the details here.
