Episcopal Clergy: Is This Any Longer a Church One Wants To Join?

Mar 28, 2015 by

From titusonenine: A Plea to the Leaders of the Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church (TEC) is experiencing a precipitous decline in Sunday morning attendance. Without addressing some of its institutional pathologies, TEC will render itself evermore irrelevant. Yet the current proposals to restructure the church ignore its basic problems. [1] The present practices, or likely outcomes in the very near future, of TEC raise a number of questions. Here is a sample: ● A proposed modification of...

Why Progressive Episcopalians and Anglicans Must Destroy Orthodoxy in the Anglican Communion

Mar 12, 2015 by

By David W Virtue DD, Virtueonline: It has become apparent to me, after actively participating in The Episcopal Church for more than a quarter of a century and watching “progressive” Anglicans at work across the Communion, that the mission of progressive and revisionist Anglicans is that they must destroy orthodoxy in the Anglican Communion in order for their goal of global revisionism to thrive and triumph. It cannot be allowed to survive. It is no longer a matter of why...

ECUSA and the Freedom of Association: a Showdown Is Coming

Mar 9, 2015 by

By A S Haley, Anglican Curmudeon: Litigation between the Episcopal Church (USA) and its parishes has been ongoing for more than fifteen years. It is a myth to say that the Church did not start any of the lawsuits: you can read all of the dreary details in this post. The Church and its several Dioceses, in fact, are responsible for more than 90% of the cases that have been filed. The first Diocese, however, did not vote to dissolve its union with General Convention until December 2007. Before...

Annual Litigation Survey for the Episcopal Church (USA) 2015

Feb 25, 2015 by

By A S Haley, Anglican Curmudgeon: It is a fact well known to certain Episcopalians—both those who have left the Episcopal Church (USA) and those who have remained—that ECUSA and its dioceses have followed a pattern of suing any church that chooses to leave for another Anglican jurisdiction. But the full extent of the litigation that has ensued is not well known at all, either in the wider Church, or among the provinces of the Anglican Communion. (Otherwise — one would think — it...

God Save Us From The Churches

Feb 22, 2015 by

By Bill Schanefelt, The American Thinker: Whilst I no longer confess the faith of my younger days, I’m certain that I’m not smart enough to be, or to call myself, either an atheist or an agnostic. But I am also certain that I am smart enough to have lost all faith in the Christian Church given what’s going on within it in these times (I shall save all theological, cosmological, and teleological discussions for — maybe — another post). Case in point is Stanford University’s Dean for...
