Comments: Virginia: more legal action

While I am appalled at the spectacle of TEC taking some of its parishes before the civil courts, this would seem a lesser sin than false witness (cf."disrespect for Scripture"), or the hypocrisy of these secessionists styling themselves "orthodox" while showing a congregationalism that's casts doubt on whether or not they even know what "Orthodoxy" is. It certainly ain't narrow Biblical literalism, though this would seem to be a big part of their definition. Not surprising given that many of them are not Anglican at all, but from other traditions where congregationalism is the norm. One has to ask why they attend Episcopal churches rather than those of their coreligionists only to then break away.
