    ( – Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) was applauded at a congressional hearing Wednesday, after he objected to Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner pleading the Fifth Amendment and refusing to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. After invoking her right to avoid self-incrimination, Lerner, the head of the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was dismissed from the hearing, which is examining the agency’s inappropriate targeting of conservative groups. After giving a brief opening statement -- in which she said she did nothing wrong -- then refusing to answer any questions, Lerner was dismissed by Committee Chairman...

    FEMINIZATION OF CHURCH OF ENGLAND REVEALS WASTELAND - The Episcopal Church parallels decline News Analysis By David W. Virtue LONDON, UK-A traditionalist Church of England priest says that the imposition of women bishops will confirm and finalize a long-standing drift from Catholic teaching and place all hope of corporate reunion finally beyond reach. The Rev Robbie Low, a member of Cost of Conscience, a traditionalist organization with Forward in Faith, writes in the June of issue of New Directions that "reunion will continue piecemeal as faithful Christians move away from the Anglican Church into the historic Communions." More worrying, writes...

    Forward in Faith International responds to the ECUSA House of Bishops 29 March 2004 "I could not possibly be more proud of our bishops, who with great care and deliberation sought to articulate our shared ministry of reconciliation in ways that are generous toward those who feel themselves in some sense alienated from our common life," Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold said, commending the House of Bishops’ paper ‘Caring for all the Churches’. The paper itself lays equal stress on a doctrine of reconciliation and on the role of bishop as a focus of unity. It needs to be asked, therefore,...

    Michael Green comes to the rescue of US network Number: 5702 Date: Jan 29, A dramatic, late-night intervention by Michael Green saved the proposed alliance of traditionalist Anglicans in America from collapse. Canon Green, who was Archbishop George Carey’s Evangelism Advisor, rallied 14 bishops and over 100 lay and clerical delegates and observers behind a charter that will keep the group within Anglicanism. The result meant the formal establishment of the Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and Parishes (NACDP) at its organising convocation in Texas on Jan 19-20. The NACDP “will operate within the constitution of the Episcopal Church and...

    FORWARD IN FAITH LEADER CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE INTERVENTION By David W. Virtue ORLANDO, FL-The President of Forward in Faith North America is calling for the immediate intervention of bishops to move across diocesan boundaries to provide adequate episcopal oversight for the new Network of Confessing Dioceses and Parishes. Fr. David Moyer, rector of Church of the Good Shepherd in Rosemont, Pa., told 50 leaders, bishops, clergy and laity at the Third U.S. Anglican Congress here that orthodox ECUSA bishops should declare themselves to be in communion with bishops of the emerging church and delegate them to assist with adequate episcopal...

    Traditionalists preparing for Catholic conversion Number: 5695 Date: Dec 4, 2003 American and Australian traditionalists are preparing to submit to papal authority should Archbishop Rowan Williams and the Primates fail to restore order to the wayward American Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Representatives from the North American and Australian branches of Forward in Faith (FiF) travelled to Rome in October and November to discuss a reunion of traditionalist Anglicans with the Roman Catholic Church. The Rev Dr David Moyer, president of the North American FiF, confirmed that the two sides were speaking, but declined to elaborate. “I can’t go...

    FORWARD IN FAITH LEADER BLASTS PRIMATES INACTION By David W. Virtue LONDON--A traditionalist Forward in Faith leader said there were "no surprises" in the primates' recent statement, and the archbishops of 75 million Anglicans did the usual, which was to "state the obvious and play for time." The Rev. Geoffrey Kirk, Forward in Faith secretary said the primates were asked to consider the "seriousness of the situation," but he would not hold his breath that anything would come out of it. "Two sad truths emerged from this fiasco. The first is that American traditionalists staked far too much on a...

The Primates have therefore to conclude ‘that the future...

    Not every part of the Pentagon's war plan to topple Saddam Hussein's regime is winning rave reviews, and one target of ridicule these days is the Defense Department's efforts to mold Iraqi exiles into a viable fighting force. In an initiative that morphed into a cross between a Monty Python sketch and the Keystone Kops, the Pentagon worked with two exile groups with maddeningly similar names, the Free Iraqi Freedom Fighters (FIFF) and the Free Iraqi Forces (FIF). The FIF were Iraqis trained in Hungary by the United States before the war. The Pentagon boasted that it would recruit 3,000...

    MOSUL, Iraq -- Expecting headaches and maybe worse from unruly factions of Kurds and Saddam Hussein loyalists, American soldiers began a campaign Wednesday to stabilize and administer this northern Iraq city. Instead, they were met with flowers and friendly greetings. No one can be sure it will last, but for now a task force of troops from the 101st Airborne and 4th Infantry divisions plans to impose order swiftly in Iraq's third largest city. That task force rushed here over the weekend after a small Marine force that had occupied the city's airport reported factional fighting among Kurds and sniping...

    America nervous as militant cleric's rallies attract mass support By Julian Coman in Washington and Sean Rayment in Kuwait (Filed: 20/04/2003) Every day, the rallies held by Battle to prevent Chalabi taking power grow bigger. Every day the American marines in the eastern Iraqi town of Kut, close to the Iranian border, become more nervous. Mr Abbas is a militant Shia cleric with an unnervingly fine grasp of the political possibilities of post-war Iraq. Some days ago, he walked into Kut town hall and simply took it over, accompanied by hundreds of supporters, many of whom had crossed the border...

    HER dusty file was one of hundreds of thousands of documents stacked in a house in a wealthy neighbourhood of Baghdad. Asma Rasheed married a pilot, lived comfortably in the presidential compound of Saddam Hussein and directed a microbiology programme that was not supposed to exist. Rasheed’s light blue folder has emerged from a huge archive seized by forces loyal to Ahmed Chalabi, the leader of the Iraqi National Congress, which opposed Saddam. The archive — a dark who’s who of Iraq — reveals the tiniest details of blandishments and humiliations by a paranoid regime that shared the Nazis’ obsession...

    BAGHDAD: Pro-American Iraqi politician Ahmad Chalabi has said the United States should oversee post-war Iraq and the United Nations lacked the capability and credibility to take a leadership role there. At a news conference in the Iraqi Hunting Club – his first since arriving in Baghdad on Wednesday – Chalabi also said he did not want a post in an interim Iraqi government and would devote himself to developing civil society. But the man seen by many analysts as the US choice to lead Iraq left open the question of whether he would stand as a candidate if the country...

    WASHINGTON: Pro-American Iraqi politician Ahmad Chalabi returned to the capital Baghdad on Wednesday on his first visit to the city since the overthrow of the monarchy in 1958, an adviser said. "We've just arrived and we have set up a headquarters in central Baghdad," said Zaab Sethna, who traveled with Chalabi in the motorcade from the southern town of Nassiriya. "His first plan is to go see his old home and then start building democracy in Iraq," added Sethna, speaking by satellite phone from Baghdad. Chalabi, leader of the Iraqi National Congress), was the first major exile politician to reach...
