Conservative bishops propose a competing North American Anglican church

[Christian Science Monitor] 3 Dec 2008--Five years after the Episcopal Church consecrated the first openly gay bishop, traditionalists are moving to create a separate and competing North American Anglican church.

On Wednesday, a network of groups from the United States and Canada will unveil a draft constitution for a unified entity that they hope will be recognized by Anglicans elsewhere in the world. They were encouraged to take this step by a group of leaders in the global Anglican Communion who say the Episcopal Church (TEC) – the US branch of Anglicanism – has abandoned traditional Christian teaching and practice.
