Fallout Starts in the Episcopal Church

The fallout over the Episcopal Church's election of the ultra-liberal Ms. Schori has evidently begun. The Diocese of Ft. Worth issued the following today: "The Bishop and Standing Committee of the Diocese of Fort Worth appeal in good faith to the Archbishop of Canterbury, the primates of the Anglican Communion, and the Panel of Reference for immediate alternative primatial oversight and pastoral care, following the election of Katharine Jefferts Schori as presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church." "This action is taken as a cooperative member of the Anglican Communion Network in light of the Windsor Report and its recommendation." And thus the long imminent crack-up of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion begins.
