Pretense of Communion?

I have been (and still am) very critical of those orthodox bishops in the Anglican Communion who have decided to boycott the Lambeth Conference this year because I believe they are hurting the cause of unity in faith and love. So, to be fair, I'll let them have their say:

Bishop Benn of Lewes in the Church of England is one of the folks that has decided to skip out on the Lambeth Conference. According to an audio statement (click the play button) Bishop Benn said the decision was very difficult, but he felt that by attending Lambeth he would be colluding with a pretense of communion as if nothing has happened, when in fact there are serious breaks in Communion that need to be recognized.
