They will not change their ways

Over on the Sydney Anglicans site, Bishop Glen Davies has posted an article lamenting the weak disciplinary action of Archbishop Williams against the TEC.
I get his frustration, and certainly wish more was done.

Still, it seems Davies has given up on the possibility of repentance for the TEC. This is a bit theologically suspect. We don't boot people out of the church because we have given up hope for their repentance. we boot them out in the hope that it will lead to repentance.
Now, the TEC is unrepentant, so sure, call for their removal, but don't give in to the temptation to place them beyond the grace of God.
