from Honolulu Star-Bulletin:

"A few years ago about a dozen Calvary members had become disenchanted with the church and the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii in general, which Chung said were influenced by the installation of 'gay bishops in New Hampshire and Los Angeles, as the church turned away from Scripture,' a news release said."

Trouble in paradise.

How homosexuals consider their ordination to be in accordance with God's will when it divides the Church in this way escapes me.

This is an Anglican Church not an Episcopal Church. Anglicans in Hawaii are free to do and worship in any fashion that pleases them. I hope they offer a bottle of Gin to the Goddess Pele and uphold native traditions.

'Anything goes' and it makes me very happy to know that these Anglicans have left TEC in they pursuit of their own happiness! God Bless America!

Your a former Episcopalian and now a member of the Church of Rome. People come and people go and TEC still remains.

You being 'relevant' is a relative statement at best.

Interesting; now it all makes sense to me. I was wondering why someone would be so interested in continually posting such negative information about a church online.

BTW Joe, this is nothing personal directed at you, just that I was wondering how you knew so much about the Episcopal Church, yet posted such negative news related to it at almost every opportunity. I figured all along that you were a Roman Catholic (cradle Catholic if you will) and just had it in for the Episcopal Church because it was so different then the RC.

Most Episcopalians that I know who have left the church (which isn't a lot mind you) have never been very negative in nature even tho' they felt that it wasn't filling their spiritual needs or if they didn't like the changes taking place; they just quietly left for other churches/parishes.

But TEC isn't so different from the RCC: that's why it's called "The Bridge Church".

As an RCC, I only had to shake a bishop's hand (received) while former Lutherans had to kneel at his feet.

And I don't write these stories: I just post them.

But wasn't TEC's PB Kate Schori a memebr of that church as well?

Joe, that is true enough, though there's enough difference so that TEC is not in communion with the RC.

I understand you just post the stories; just that the stories almost always seem to present a negative view of TEC and while I understand that we can't hide from whatever potential flaws some may think that TEC has, nonetheless an occasional positive (and i know some in here will say, "what positive news?) article about TEC helps to spread the cement of tolerance between the various religious groups and foster friendship and knowledge between all of us.

There's another TEC editor who specializes in just that and she'll be back from Cuba before long.
