I am sure remaining liberals in the SC Diocese are all a-titter over KJ-S pending arrival. Maybe they will cut down palm branches and provide a donkey for her to ride in while they sing Hosanna. If anyone can save the day -- not to mention the assets -- it is her majesty.

On the other hand, it can't be too high of a priority if she is waiting a month and a half. So take that, South Carolina.

Actually that is just one diocese in South Carolina, there is also Upper South Carolina diocese and they aren't going anywhere.

Why do you think stealing is ok when there is clearly a commandment against stealing?

No one is holding them hostage, they are free to leave but not with our assets....

Read the Pawley Island decision by the SC Supreme Court (I forget the parish's name). The Court said that the parish owned the property - not the Diocese and not the national church. So who is trying to "steal" something if parishes own the assets and 815 and some faux diocese is trying to take them away?

Is this legal? For the moment, the Bishop's position may be uniquely valid in South Carolina. However, it is doubtful that it will withstand a legal challenge.

Here's why: Three years ago, the state's Supreme Court issued a ruling in the case of All Saints, Pawleys Island that seemed to suggest that the Episcopal Church -- and any other similarly structured church organization like the Presbyterians and Methodists -- does not have a legal interest in parish property held in trust by the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina.

All Saint's was trying to break away from the Episcopal Church and join the Anglican Province of Rwanda, which it eventually was allowed to do.

Legal authorities and those familiar with the Court's thinking say that the ruling was specific to the unique nature of All Saint's case.

I agree it is straight from the horse - but it is from the other end and not its mouth. TEO may prevail in claims against some of the breakaway parishes but the SC Supreme Court said something very damning to the PB's claims - namely that the Dennis canon has no application in SC. You cannot declare yourself to be the owner of someone else's property. Unless TEO can prove that under state law it has an ownership right independent of the Dennis canon, it should lose again.

It's the Christmas season and you are still filled with self-righteous anger and bitterness.

Merry Christmas, you reap what you sow.....

Guess the Oregon Supreme Court is filled with the same self-righteous anger and bittereness as am I and the South Carolina Supreme Court. They too think self-declared ownership of someone else's propperty is invalid. Whodda thunk it?

I'm sorry, did you want them to wish you a Merry Christmas too?

Maybe Santa will bring you spell check for Christmas and something for that temper.

Why is it than when the going gets a bit rough and insults are flung, you ALWAYS resort to this kind of thought?

Christmas - Advent - the solstice, is the Season and event signifying Rebirth.

You might want to reconcile with yourself, drop your pretenses and take the opportunity of the Season to relocate the point of origin of your thoughts and feelings.

That is what I am doing and you are welcome to join with me. It is a good habit to develop.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, George!

from virtueonline:

The Oregon Supreme Court handed down a decision in the case of Hope Presbyterian Church of Rogue River v the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Presbytery of the Cascades of Oregon. The Court held that a denominational trust does not encumber parish property unless the parish takes an explicit action to place a trust or lien on the property on behalf of the denomination ...

That may or may not mean much.

I suppose one question might be whether or not the Dennis Canon, as pertains to the relationship between parish, its property and assets and the tax benefits utilized by implication of membership within the union of a denomination, can be regarded as an "explicit action ..."

Or, in verification and tacit approval, if a parish did not express objection at the time of the approval of the Dennis Canon, knowing full well of its implications of solidarity and commitment to the Church, is that not also a permision of the "explicit action ...?"

It may well be. Given that the two state courts are representing an extremely, progressively liberal philosophy on the one hand and and an historically rebellious attitude in the other, neither of the Courts' determinations is any surprise to me.

No one really cares what David Virtue says about anything at all. He has proven time and again to be a fraud and a liar.
