I take exception to Bishop Hanley's remarks concerning the status of this new Anglican province and whether it genuinely is "Anglican." He was correct to say that Anglican Church of North America is currently not recognized as a standing province, but what he failed to add was that this is a process, and as in all processes involving the Anglican Communion, a very slow process. Add the facts that a number of leading bishops have recognized this newly forming province and further that a recent synod in the Church of England (the founding Church of Anglicanism) overwhelming voted in favor of recognizing Anglican Church of North America, and Bishop Hanley's comments stand in need of significant qualification. Perhaps this is why the Bishop prefers fuzziness over "certainty."
In response to Tom Ford's comments, I am quite familiar with all the topics you referenced. Philosophy of religion in an Enlightenment -post-Enlightenment context is a central part of my dissertation research. Before making such comments, I would encourage you to read some of the academic literature on the topic, perhaps you would less rash in your assertions.
