"We shall see who blinks first!"

Once upon a time when the progressives thought they would take over the Anglican Communion and destroy the last vestiges of "fundamentalism" in the communion, Rowan Williams, the then Archbishop of Canterbury, and the enabler of "progressives" told the then Archbishop of Nigeria, Peter Akinola, "We shall see who blinks first!" Since that day, it is clear that neither Akinola nor his colleagues have blinked. Indeed, through the formation of GAFCON (Global Anglican Future Conference) and union with biblically faithful Anglicans in the Global North, they are pressing their cause with an eye toward the next decennial assembly of bishops at Lambeth.
Today GAFCON "owns" 80% of the Anglican Communion and William's prognostication is dead on arrival.
William's successor, Justin Welby, has proven to be weak, wobbly and meta referential both as leader of the Communion and in the spread of the gospel.
Instead of supporting orthodox Anglicans who make up GAFCON (and who could have been his spear carriers), he has derided them as little more than a "ginger group". He has made his bed with the progressives especially and, including Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, permanently alienating orthodox (evangelical and Anglo-Catholics) and dissing orthodox Anglicans who make up the Anglican Church in North America. Is it any wonder that ACNA Archbishop Foley Beach returned the favor, calling most of Western Anglicanism "neo-pagan?"
