NZ gets two Anglican Churches. Maybe Australia will too

From New Zealand-

There is a great line that economics writers use to disparage each other: “They predicted ten of the last three recessions.”

Church splits are a bit similar. It would be easy to have predicted ten of the last three schisms.
For example, an imminent split in the Anglican Church of Australia has been written about for the last two decades – normally in the Sydney Morning Herald.

This is not to diminish the seriousness of the current situation facing Australia’s Anglican Church. The dispute over same-sex blessings that escalated after the Diocese (region) of Wangaratta authorised blessings of civil marriages of LGBT people and the Archbishop of Sydney Glenn Davies responded by asking those leaders who want to change doctrine to leave, was quite rightly described by Davies as a “crisis”.
