Seems Archbishop Hepworth is winning on the public relations front

The new TAC tribunal convicted Archbishop Hepworth in absentia, without anyone representing him, and have published a statement that does not even list the charges Hepworth faced.

Fr. Smuts has the statement.  Seems the new TAC is not winning the battle for public opinion on this one, though perhaps some new TACkers will suddenly develop multiple email aliases to make it seem this tribunal acted in a just and merciful manner.

You can go over to Fr. Smuts’ site to read all about it.

I wish the new TAC would cut their losses and move on.   What pound of flesh do they wish to extract from Archbishop Hepworth?   He is pushing 70, with no pension save for what the Australian government offers seniors.  Will they now go after his house so he is thrown out onto the street?   If the new TAC thinks this is a way to evangelize and grow new members, I hope they rethink the optics of their campaign.

The archbishop remains in my prayers as do others who are experiencing the brunt of his debacle.

    Deborah,

    From your link:

    The following sanction was imposed:

    1. THAT JOHN ANTHONY HEPWORTH, ARCHBISHOP, be, with immediate effect, permanently expelled from the COLLEGE OF BISHOPS OF THE TRADITIONAL ANGLICAN COMMUNION.

    2. THAT all licences for any EPISCOPAL or PRIESTLY function within any affiliated church of the TRADITIONAL ANGLICAN COMMUNION, be with immediate effect withdrawn.

    This is laughable. Archbishop Hepworth is not, and never has been, a member of the body that emerged from the mutiny led by Bishop Marsh and Archbishop Prakesh that purports to be the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC).

    I rather hope that they continue to undermine their own credibility.

    Norm.
