Schori's spin is that one in three dioceses of TEC is growing. The fact is then obvious that two of every three diocese is declining. The major reality is that Schori's TEC has declined from over 3.5 million a few decades ago to under 2 million today. But Schori is a good spin meister. With her it is like Home on the Range "where never is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudly all day." Other call it "head in the sand."

There are many fools and falsely motivated critics out there.

Take care to not be one yourself.
