Two Continuing Church Prelates Seize Property To Block Parish's Disaffiliation

[The Christian Challenge] 23 May 2008--Given what the first wave of orthodox refugees from The Episcopal Church (TEC) went through in the late 1970s and afterward, it is small wonder that the Continuing Anglican manifesto, the 1977 Affirmation of St. Louis, defends the right of congregations to control their property.

So why have two bishops of a small Continuing Church jurisdiction acted just like a couple of Episcopal prelates, filing suit against a congregation to keep it from leaving with its property?

That is what a lot of Continuers want to know - or will want to know - when they read this story.
