The Telegraph cast pot shots at those working for inclusion in the Episcopal Church. Their convention will be a "test of how far the liberal leadership has pulled back from its radical agenda"
I'm curious, what makes the inclusion of gay and lesbians radical? In the context of this piece, it's clearly a bad thing. And gay marriages are in quotation marks, as if they were less real.
And if ECUSA keeps pushing "ahead with its liberal policies, Williams may have little choice but to refuse to invite its leaders to the 2008 Lambeth Conference", making it sound as if this whole crises is by ECUSA and not those on the right who are pushing for their expulsion.
Another piece of bias is an otherwise fine piece by Andrew Sullivan who contrasts the religious right with Christians who privately try to live out their faith without trying to gain political control. Who are these Christians..well, legit ones of course.
They would be evangelicals, catholics, good solid orthodox folks. Mainline or liberal protestants are not included in this list, presumably because he was trying to convince the reader that indeed legitimate Christians (not us) are unhappy with the religious right.
Just some examples of the way in which mainline and liberal protestants are generally treated or prevented from being heard in the media. Given this fact, I'm impressed that the United Church of Christ is addressing this with their site accessible airwaves.
