Mushrooming bishops

MadPriest asked what became of Big Pete Akinola.

No sooner asked than answered. He's been busy extending his empire:
AT least fourteen new bishops were yesterday in Ughelli, Delta State ,
consecrated by the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion with an exhortation to
be good shepherds and not a wolves to the flocks of Christ.

Making the clarion call while consecrating the bishops during the service held at the
All Saints Cathedral Church, Ughelli, the Archbishop and Primate of the Church
of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, the Most Revd Peter Akinola told the new bishops
to abide by the discipline of Jesus Christ in the discharge of their duties as
clergies.

He said their consecration into the royal priesthood of the Anglican
Communion was to advance the evangelical work of God, adding their
calling was of God.
At least? The Church of Nigerian, Anglican Communion, will soon have enough bishops that a national synod will have to be held in the University of Kent, Canterbury as the only place big enough.

All here

  1. This is getting a bit silly. Akinola is just consecrating bishops to boost his voting power in Gafcon and the wider Anglican Communion. Most of them have hardly any priests, let alone infrastructure or finance.
