Told ya

I was writing earlier on the hazards of trying to amicably share living space with rodents. As if to illustrate my point, along comes this story at The Living Church, about the now-famous bullying letters sent to the dioceses of Quincy and Fort Worth. This is the checking-your-coffee-cup-for-mouse-droppings stage of the "live and let live" experiment conservatives are running with the liberals.

I'm reminded of some lines of Macaulay, which can be adapted to the situation:

Now Anglican is to Anglican
More hateful than a foe,
And the bloggers beard the high,
And the bishops grind the low.
As we wax hot in faction,
So in battle we wax cold:
And we win souls no more as we did
In the brave days of old.

Assimilate this, Ms. Schori! (How does one e-mime swimming the Tiber?)
