ACA House of Bishops suspends Bishop David Moyer
According to a highly placed source, David L. Moyer, a bishop in the Anglican Church in America, has been suspended from the denomination by unanimous vote of the ACA House of Bishops. He is no longer a member in good standing of the House of Bishops. This has been verified by Presiding Bishop Brian Marsh.
The Anglican Church in America (ACA) is a Continuing Anglican church body in the United States, a branch of the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) whose former Archbishop John Hepworth resigned from the TAC following a failed attempt to lead the TAC into the Roman Catholic Church. He was rejected as unsuitable by Rome for the Pope's Ordinariate for his status as a former Catholic Priest, who joined another denomination, and subsequently married twice. He was offered laicization instead. He rejected Rome's offer.
Moyer had tied his fortunes to Hepworth following his being deposed by the Bishop of Pennsylvania, Charles E. Bennison, and evicted from the church. His first flight was to the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, then under Bishop Robert Duncan, and then the Anglican Province of Central Africa under its archbishop Bernard Malango. Read more
