Diocese of Pittsburgh Historic Decision Will Reverberate Around Anglican Communion

[VirtueOnline] 1 Oct 2008--The Diocese of Pittsburgh will make an historic decision on October 4, 2008. The diocese will ask itself if it will remain a constituent member of the Episcopal Church USA or vote to come under another jurisdiction, in this case the Province of the Southern Cone and Archbishop Gregory Venables.

If they vote to leave, and all the indicators are that they will, the cries of anguish, anger and bewilderment will reverberate around the Anglican Communion, indicating one more time that The Episcopal Church fabric has been irrevocably torn and that realignment is now a fact of Anglican life. (Since his deposition, Bishop Duncan has been personally received into the Province of the Southern Cone).
