More on the Episcopal Church: Good article over at OpinionJournal.com by Katherine Kersten notes that churches shouldn't be like political parties -- trying to be inclusive as possible for the sole purpose of getting more people under the tent. I seem to remember something about "narrow the gate."
Also, the Midwest Conservative Journal has a round-up of responses from members of the Anglican Communion around the world -- it doesn't bode well for the unity of that church.
I would have been more surprised had the Episcopal Chuch had held fast to their Biblical faith. The first sign of something wrong in a chuch is found in their seminaries. Awhile ago, long before the current church meeting, Bill O'Reilly had a theology professor from an Episcopal seminary on his show to talk about the nomination of Gene Robinson. O'Reilly started off the interview by referring to Romans 1. O'Reilly didn't even get to the specific verse. All he got out was "Romans 1" and the seminary professor told him that she didn't want to talk about the Bible.
Let me say that again: "the seminary professor told him that she didn't want to talk about the Bible."
