from The Index Journal:

"Our denomination, like many others, has wrestled mightily with issues of moral theology and the interpretation of scripture in recent years. This sad episode is related to that struggle.

I like this statement. It shows the love Christ Jesus asked of us.

From the article:

However, the local expression of the Episcopal Church in Greenwood County is not divided.
