Anlgican Schism.

Recently, the threat of schism in the Anglican Communion over the ordination of homosexual priests has not been prominent in the the news. Both sides seem to have been marking time. However, as the Daily Telegraph's religion correspondent write in today's edition, things are likely to come to a head later this month, when the Archbishop of Canterbury meets with orthodox bishops to discuss the next step.

The orthodox website, VirtueOnline, sees a split as inevitable and forecasts that it will come at the meeting of Anglican Primates in Tanzania, next February, when orthodox US Episcopalian dioceses will be given their own bishops.
