Interesting Thoughts From an Interesting Source

Always good to see the Nonjurors getting attention. This time from what I would consider something of an unlikely source.

Why didn't they just become Catholic like they should have?

That is interesting. As one who at one time placed himself "under the authority of some African or Asian prelate" (the AMIA) I read this with great interest for the historical precedent. Thank you.

Well, that, eftsoons, would have involved interacting with and even submitting oneself to such objectionable associates as Irishmen and Italians as well as departing from use of the Book of Common Prayer or associated Anglocentric liturgies. What is more, it would have, in future terms, still involved enduring post Vatican II folk masses and nuns in pantsuits.

Seems a simple enough choice to me.

I find nothing interesting about any of this.
