from Albany Times Union:

"They are contemplating what the church calls 'Delegated Episcopal Pastoral Oversight,' known by its acronym of DEPO, which was formalized in 2004 as a response to conservative parishes' reactions to the ordination of gay clergy and other issues related to sexuality.

"'Initially DEPO was designed to deal with theologically conservative parishes that are located in more theologically minded liberal dioceses,' Bishop William H. Love said Friday.

"'The reverse is occurring in the Diocese of Albany. Albany has been a traditionally conservative theological diocese,' the bishop said."

Well, isn't that a surpising, if not hypocritcal, turn of events.

The only thing is that liberal congregations will never leave TEC as did conservative ones. The money and property us too important to the liberals. They prey off the orthodox who built their churches and who endowed their churches. But not one liberal congregation will leave TEC and start over. It is just one more proof that liberalism doesn't work in the church. They only take over, they never originate. They only covet someone else's money, but will not give their own.
