Episcopal Church Splits over Homosexuality

The ordination of Bishop Gene Robinson and the overall increased acceptance of gays and lesbians in the Episcopal Church has finally led to an exit by the phobes to start their own homophobic nest of worship.

I won't pretend to truly understand the workings of any church, but my first response is, Don't slam the door on the way out:

Jim Naughton, canon for communications and advancement in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, and a liberal who frequently blogs on Anglican affairs, said he doubted that a rival Anglican province could grow much larger.

“I think this organization does not have much of a future because there are already a lot of churches in the United States for people who don’t want to worship with gays and lesbians,” he said. “That’s not a market niche that is underserved.”
