<<Because they [the AAC] are divisive force in a church which has traditionally been everything but.>>

<Why do you think they are divisive.>

Where do I start? They have alienated the moderates. They have split the conservatives, their natural constituency, into at least two groups, one of which has essentially decided to stay in the church and help in cleaning up the mess (it is among this group that I see some of the strongest reactions to the AAC). Their self-advocacy has confirmed (perhaps unfairly) the view of some that splitting the church was the goal, and Robinson was merely the excuse. They have adopted the Orwellian logic that they are splitting the church in the name of church unity.

<Is Canon Robinson a divisive force?>

Is asking rhetorical questions a useful exercise?
