Sadly, and ironically, the Rt. Rev. Charles vonRosenberg is quoted in The Post and Courier as saying, “Our biblical heritage tells of journeys experienced by faithful people. Those journeys often were difficult and filled with setbacks, but people of faith were called to persevere on the way.”

It’s a silly notion to compare legal issues to the struggles of persecuted Christians, but in this case the faithful have actually won.

The real battle among Episcopalians worldwide, and particularly in the United States, is not for property or power but between those faithful to the Word of God and those who have strayed.

Mr. vonRosenberg must understand that you can’t claim an orthodox commitment to something that you, in practice, deny.
