A Jerusalem taxi driver of Palestinian extraction drove me out early to Bethlehem. There is another route in which avoids the big checkpoint, although I could see the wall in the distance. We went early in the morning (before 9 am) and it was good to see the Church of the Nativity before the tourists and the hawkers got there. The taxi driver was a good guide - very balanced, I thought - and he brought me to a Christian Palestinian guide in Bethlehem. I loved seeing the city on my own in my own time - you will have to go back.



Obviously I personally rejoice in the SEC' liberal and accepting nature, but it occurs to me that you might find Reagan's famous "I didn't leave the democratic party, the democratic party left me" sadly analogous here.



Which of the provinces of the Anglican Communion have representatives at the conference?



Ruth Gledhill appears to have given the game away.


The Jerusalem Declaration claims , in regard to the liberal agenda, that : "It promotes a variety of sexual preferences and immoral behaviour as a universal human right". The logical implications of this - i.e. that ordaining gay bishops isn't merely wrong but so too is legalised homosexuality - negates the emphasis you seem to put on civil rights for everyone.
