Let's see, the Episcopal Church in the United States says it was in the right by acting independently of the worldwide Anglican Communion in ordaining a gay bishop, but insists Episcopalians in Ohio are in the wrong by acting independently of ECUSA in holding a Vaseline-free confirmation service...
THE PRESIDING BISHOP of the Episcopal Church in the United States, the Most Revd Frank Griswold, has condemned the action of five retired American bishops and a bishop from Brazil in confirming 110 people in Akron, Ohio, without the permission of the Bishop of Ohio, the Rt Revd Clark Grew. ...
