A big day for American Anglicanism, received as expected by the left and the right. +Bob Duncan has clarified his views on the Minns installation on the ACN web site--if there was any doubt.

I am going to give it a try.
There are a slew of people from all over here. I bumped into Benjamin Kwashi and his wife Gloria in the lobby on the way in. We had about a five minute visit. Loved seeing the text messages from their children. I asked about the climate in Nigeria and no, it is still not safe for Bishop Kwashi. An important reminder of the cost of following the gospel.
I had a warm greeting from Bishop David Bena and thought about the sheer courage of the man. Many forget that he was the Bishop who read a word of protest on behalf of a number of bishops at the New Hampshire Consecration service in the fall of 2003. I was there.
The atmosphere coming into the event is hard to describe accurately. On the one hand, given the statement of Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and some reappraising blogs seemingly howling in protest over the matter, it seems like a big deal.[Titus One Nine]
