World press reactions to the JSC statement
Submitted by a reader of Anglicans Online
(whose name we will list only if he or she permits it).

It seems to me that there has been some news regarding the reaction to the ECUSA Bishops' meeting that you might concider posting. I am specifically refering to a report from the Joint Standing Committee of the Anglican Consultative Council and the Primates of the Anglican Communion has found that the Episcopal Church has "clarified all outstanding questions..." (or not, depending on the source you are reading).

I was particularly looking forward to any word on the subject in the world press. Here are some stories on the subject in the US press and other web site. Although I know you concentrate on "hard news" rather than reactions, I note that, in some cases, the reactions are themselves news because of the importance of the reactors.
