Episcopal Church sues Binghamton parish

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Episcopal Diocese of Central New York has filed a lawsuit seeking the property of a Binghamton congregation that opposes the denomination's policy on homosexuality.

It's the second such lawsuit filed by the diocese and among dozens of similar cases across the country as the Episcopal Church faces ongoing opposition from congregations that disapprove of the 2003 consecration of New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson. Robinson has publicly acknowledged being in a committed gay relationship.

Churches pick out lawyers to be shed of such nonsense.
Looks like the 2020 vision by previous General Conventions was premature and myopic.  The Church of the New Thang will likewise look back in 15 years and note that its goals were also unmet - survival mode will be the theme in 2025. Maybe the aging revisionists can chant “Staying Alive” as they process into GC 2026.
