FiFNA to Nashotah House: Rescind Schori invitation or move her to a non-liturgical venue

The orthodox Anglican world continues to voice its displeasure with Nashothah House's invitation to the "Presiding Bishop" of a sub-Christian organization. The latest salvo comes form Forward in Faith North America (FiFNA).
The National Council of FIFNA endorses and affirms the ACNA College of Bishops’ statement issued on Feb 25, 2014, regarding the invitation to Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori to preach at Nashotah House.

In the interest of restoring “the trust that this particular invitation has seriously shaken,” we request that the invitation either be rescinded or that the venue be changed to an academic lecture by Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori in a non-liturgical context, followed by a time for discussion and response.
The proposal to move Madam Oven Mitt to a non-liturgical venue is a reasonable compromise. Let us pray the Nashotah House administration sees it as such and adjusts its schedule accordingly.
