Anglican fight over church property heads to court


[Vancouver Sun] 14 Oct 2008--Three Anglican congregations that split from the Vancouver-area diocese over its support for same-sex blessings have gone to court to avoid being kicked out of their churches.

The three congregations - St. John's Shaughnessy in Vancouver, St. Matthias/St. Luke in Vancouver and St. Matthew's in Abbotsford - argue in court documents that they should be allowed to remain because their opposition to same-sex blessings is consistent with "historic, orthodox Anglican doctrine."
