Of archbishops and stolen property

The T*blet of 17 September has an editorial about one Revd Nolbert Kunonga who has declared himself the Anglican "archbishop" of Harare and who has seized church property including the cathedral. The link is here. Caveat lector - reading The T*blet places one in spiritual danger.

I'm not sure I see the problem. Surely the good reverend is simply following a 450 year old Anglican tradition by seizing Church property and by awarding himself an ecclesial title?

I would have thought The T*blet would have approved. After all, that magazine is Anglican in all but name any way...

Stick it to them! Some of the material I've seen from The Tablet is decidedly anti-Catholic. I hesitate to say heretical, schismatic - only cos I'm not a theologian. Is it too much to ask for a CATHOLIC Church, a CATHOLIC media, a CATHOLIC hierarchy, a CATHOLIC Mass/Liturgy and CATHOLIC fixtures and fittings?

As someone (Bernard Cribbens' character?) once complained to Basil Fawlty "it's not as if I asked for an elephant's ear on a bun!"
