Courts hear arguments over pivotal church property dispute


[Religious Intelligence] 30 Sep 2008--Two high-profile church property cases in the United States are coming to a close, with courts in New York and Virginia hearing arguments as to whether secular law, or canon law, should govern the control of church property.

On Sept 22, the Diocese of Virginia announced it had conceded most of the remaining issues under consideration by the court in its property lawsuit with the breakaway parishes of the Convocation of Anglican Churches in North America (CANA), stating that it will focus its energies on an appeal.
