[Regarding a report in THE LIVING CHURCH that three bishops are reporting
Canon Mark Harris and the Rev. Susan Russell for releasing correspondence
circulated by the bishops and their colleagues.]

PRIVATE correspondence with bishops?  Then why were they circulating it to
clergy and/or lay folk?  It was not a bishop who leaked this material.

If the correspondence were private among bishops, no one else would ever
have seen it.   Instead, some over-zealous member of their group sent it to
encourage other schismatics, and was so fervent that the person did not even
carefully check the email addresses of the persons to whom it was sent.

They were not concerned to keep the correspondence private among the
bishops, but are concerned that the rest of us now know their plots.

Nor are are the three complainants generous in not pushing for a trial. They
know that they would lose in a trial;  besides, smearing costs less and
provides a smoke screen  to distract attention from their own malice and

This reminds me of the "hot tub chat" Bishop Jack Iker had with Archbishop
George Carey.  He was so excited that he sent a report broadly, more broadly
than he intended.  See https://andromeda.rutgers.edu/~lcrew/2ikerabc.html.

Beware:  what is connived in secret shall be made known from the house tops.
