Law & Unlaw among Anglicans and Others

Ian H. Henderson writes in First Things:

In the present agonies of the Anglican Communion, and of many other denominations besides, it is almost impossible to avoid labeling each other. Sometimes we assign or adopt labels in a sincere effort to indicate our own or others’ loyalties and identities; sometimes we use labels more aggressively to associate one another with positions we think we can safely attack. Often our labels are confusing. In communities where the liberal tradition has long been deeply embedded, for example, it may well be conservative to be liberal: a bias in favor of change may be a deeply entrenched tradition.
