Moral theology.

Dear editor,

Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, is "disturbed" by the prospect that an Anglican province may be constituted on the basis of theology rather than geography (Anglican Journal Web site, Nov. 18).

Some 16th-century popes were disturbed when many--Christians in England decided that they no longer wished to receive "pastoral care" from clergy representing the bishop of Rome.

If a difference in pastoral theology was enough to prompt separating Canterbury from Rome, then it must be okay for a difference in moral theology to separate "conservatives" and "liberals" today.
