Write your own punchline

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Oct 28, 2003

Some disaffected Anglicans in British Columbia are being threatened with excommunication. Their alleged offenses include disobeying the bishop, causing scandal, and schism.

And what are these contentious people doing, actually? They're opposing the recognition of same-sex "marriage" by Anglican churches.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Given the state of some of our Bishops on this side of the Tiber, I have less confidence than I use to in assuring them that they will not eventually face the same threat here.

    Is the USCCB paying attention to the Anglican Bishops? A lesson is here for them on excommunication!
