My take on this (sorry, not speaking for Ross of course - he's a big boy and will speak for himself I'm sure!) is that we are called to be discerning, not necessarily by condemning others outright.
It is not implying that there are not true Christians in any of these 'northern' churches, but traditionally and historically there have been different streams of thought in the Anglican church. So, it is more likely that you will hear the straight-forward message about the grace of God (the Trinity idea would be the same) in a 'low' church than in a 'high' church (where the cultural trappings - bells and smells - are more prevalent).
Also, there is an Anglo-catholic strain in the overall Anglican church which is basically Catholicism without the Pope. It is actually a sign of overall freedom that there can be churches existing side-by-side in the one communion that allows for people to discern and choose what is more biblically sound, without condemning those who disagree with you in a wholesale manner.
Believe it or not, the same thing goes for 2X2 over here. Especially when Leslie White was in Colorado. Basically, Colorado was, and still to a certain extent, wrong in many beliefs (according to many out here in the West).
Of course there is the D&R issue that divides us as well.
I chose our fellowship for many reasons, but we are imperfect just like the rest. Glad Christ is the Way, the Truth, and The light
