In spite of the clear warning from the Presiding Bishop that we -- the Episcopal Church -- have really had quite enough of this foolishness -- the Diocese of Quittsburgh ... sorry "Pittsburgh" ... opted for schism over reconciliation and on it goes.
Here's a round-up of commentary:
Pittsburgh Chooses Anglican Limbo -- Father Jake
Pittsburgh Convention Approves ... -- Episcopal Life
Bishop Duncan takes his stand -- PRELUDIUM (Mark Harris)
The Episcopal Church is not divisible -- Episcopal Cafe
And yes, I know there are neo-con blogs commenting as well. Go ahead and link them to YOUR blogs if you want to.
The New York Times is reporting:
Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese Votes to Leave the Church
And GOOGLE elicited these local press stories:
Pittsburgh Post Gazette
Pittsburgh Tribune Review
Johnstown Tribune Democrat
And now, let's everybody sing together our Hymn of the Day:
Come, Thou long expected Schism
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears of queers release us
As we quest for Purity.
CANA’s strength and consolation
Hope of homophobes thou art
Dear Desire of “Network” nations
Joy of every “Windsor” heart.
Reasserters you’ll deliver
As you split the church apart.
Come thou long expected schism
Let the glorious rupture start!
