  1. Pb says:

    This is very sad but totally predictable news. Three courts have heard this case and all have held the same thing for the same reasons. DGA gets enough property so that it can sell some and maintain a cathedral which cannot pay its bills.

  2. Albeit says:

    The comments and analysis by a dissenting Judge should not be overlooked. He makes a very powerful argument for tremendous overreach on the part of the court(s) regarding the matter of precedence set in “Jones and the application of neutral principles of law.” He goes so far as to apply the result against all title’s and deeds, including corporate, which can be laid claim to as a result of this decision. This is much, much more than “an Episcopal polity/property issue.”

    Prayers for wisdom as CC considers further action.

  4. TomRightmyer says:

    I thiink the dissenting opinion makes more sense, but I thought that also in the trial of Bishop Righter.
