I hope that you understand that the remarks of one person are just that in interviews, his/her ideas.  I was not privy to the actual wording of that resolution nor of any of the debate.  But it's always the "wowser" quotes that end up in the papers.  Wierd things and people in debate and distress make more "news"  :-\

Oh, and I understand that completely.  But I'm still going to react to the wowser comment in the hopes that it will let folks who think like that know that there are some of us who think they're whacko!
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

There are plenty of Anglicans who have done the same.
