It's not my quarrel, I know, but good gravy

As someone with an interest in liturgy, history, ecumenical relations, and with many friends in various Anglican, Catholic, and Orthodox bodies, I thought it would be interesting to read the piece on the variety of Anglican liturgical practices of which their Roman Catholic friends might not be aware:

http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2009/10/variants-of-anglican-worship-former.html

The article was interesting. The comments were generally snarky, nasty, condescending, unChristlike, and/or pedantic. What a bunch of jerks (mostly). I suppose it is possible to be 100% orthodox and 100% personally repellent, but what such folks think they are offering to a world starved for the love of God beats me.
