Another Battle Joined in Virginia

[Still On Patrol] 14 Nov 2007--The soil of the Commonwealth of Virginia has been the scene of many momentous battles throughout the history of this country. In the American Revolution and Civil War, we as a people spilled our blood for freedom and the future of this country on the battlefields of war. In later times, Virginia was often at the forefront of the battles to end racial segregation in our schools and public places; I know, for I grew up in Virginia in those times. Today, Virginia is hosting another battle for freedom, as the "Virginia Eleven" go to court to begin a hearing against the Diocese of Virginia and TCGC over who shall retain ownership of such historic church properties such as Truro Church in Fairfax, and the Falls Church, both of which existed as Anglican congregations before those first Revolutionary battles were fought.
