Read it for yourself before you get scared

Global South Anglican - Fourth Trumpet from the Fourth Anglican Global South to South Encounter

Economic development, empowerment of women and young people, support for lay people as Christ's primary witnesses in the world, facing up to persecution... these and other important issues are laid out, and all The Episcopal News Service headline can shriek is, "Those people are attacking us!"

Actually, Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is really holding herself in on this story. Her "news" items a year or so back used to drip with insinuation and spin. I'm surprised she isn't bringing up "other" facts or trying to find some Brazilian pastor to say "these people do not speak for us," and then find someone else to drop the words "homophobia," "hatred," "fear of equality" etc. etc.
