A note on Diocese of South Carolina Developments

Posted by Kendall Harmon

There have been many relevant articles and pieces of information related to the situation here in the diocese of South Carolina in recent days. I have waited until today to post them since I did not want them lost on Veterans/Remembrance Day yesterday. Please note that I post material here which is in circulation but which is, in some cases, factually false, and in others, embarrassingly biased against the diocese. I trust readers to read and sift things carefully and make their own judgments. If you have questions, ask--KSH.

I’d like to be able to forward writings concerning ECUSA’s recent actions re the Diocese of S.C. and Bishop Lawrence, several of which appear—on their face—to raise issues of constitutionality under canon law applicable to ECUSA. A. S. Haley’s blog is excellent on these issues, as are the analyses of the Anglican Communion Institute, however, many readers will likely find them less than “reader-friendly” because some of the issues will be seen to be arcane and complex to many readers. Thus, in order to easily access writings that are fairly straightforward less complex, regarding this matter (including matters that are directly related), would it be perhaps not too burdensome for you to reorganize your blog format so as to have a section containing issuances from ECUSA and other sources supporting ECUSA’s actions in this matter a second section containing articles from media sources re this matter, and a third section containing posts of the Diocese of South Carolina, Alan Haley, the Institute, and others critical of ECUSA’s actions in this matter?  You’ve done an outstanding service in posting communications that are currently on the blog, however, I think some reorganization would be of great benefit to those who simply need an easier way to get a grasp on the earlier, current, and possible future developments (in this regard, I believe some media sources regrettably fail to reflect an understanding of the issues involved here).
