If ++Rowan could talk, what would he say? Volume 2

++Rowan's Pentecost letter to the Anglican Communion is more of the same equivocating double-talk, dressed up in the language of church discipline. He continues to draw a moral equivalence between the unlawful and unbiblical practices of the two former North American provinces and the emergency relief efforts ("border crossings") of orthodox Global South provinces. You can read the letter and its executive summary here, if you like. I will not waste space on this site by reprinting it or commenting on it. It is not worth the effort.

The question remains: If ++Rowan could talk, what would he say?

UPDATE: John Richardson offers what has to be the best summary of the beleaguered Archbishop's missive.
