    Err – this from the church whose headquarters summarily fired all its cleaning staff and replaced them with non-union labor?

    This kind of law-breaking is cheap. Let them try in in Dar Es Salaam

    Unless I’m missing something, all the causes mentioned in the article are associated with the political left/ liberal points of view. Are there no Episcopalians who have been arrested for protesting abortion clinics? Or for objecting to anything with a liberal bent?
    Eesh. This kind of article makes me wonder if I’m welcome in my own church.

    Although they believe that they are following Biblical tradition, these guys are not getting arrested for preaching the Gospel. They are getting arrested for supporting a labor union, for criminal trespass, or for whatever social cause floats their boat. Not a good use of the dog collar if you ask me.

    Maybe if Jack Stanton wanted to become a political activist he should have, because I’m pretty ministers in the Church of Jesus Christ are called to preach the Gospel, which is a slightly different job description. The problem with the Episcopal Church is that too many of its clergy were not called to be clergy, but social worker, community activists, and politicians. All good vocations, but different from the vocation of priest!
