      I remain skeptical. The Patr of Alexandria case is an example of
      someone who has buckled underneath the particular circumstances.
      He's dead -- the Patr of Alexandria has moved on.

      I repeat my question that I posed to Presybter Peter Jackson:

      Is there a meaningful distincition between:

      (a) a church that tolerates someone (even a bishop) that holds such
      ecumenistic beliefs, and

      (b) a church that tolerates to commune with (a).

      Still waiting...
