For a Brit, and especially for a scholarly Brit, this is very strong, caustic language indeed. And it's fully deserved.

One of the ironies in all this is that just the day before, in warning the ABoC not to recognize the new upstart ACNA, the PB had said, "Schism is not a Christian act."

Isn't that priceless? Coming from a woman who is leading TEC straight into schism, without any qualms or hesitation.

I'm so glad to be out of TEC now.

Ahem, no one outside the church thinks that Tom Wright is a scholar. He's what passes for an intellectual in these impoverished times in the church. The same can be said for Rowan Williams. Much of Williams' reputation for intellect is based on people coming away from his talks, shaking their heads and saying 'all above me, I'm afraid. He's very clever.' My own experience of intellectuals is that they are able to explain things in ways which non-specialists can understand. They elucidate. Williams obfuscates. He masks his limitations behind a smokescreen of incomprehensiblity.
