APO: a view from the House of Bishops Task Force

The Living Church has a report Bishop Sauls: Not All APO Requests Violate Canons that tells us something about what the House of Bishops’ Task Force on Property Disputes thinks.

…Despite the fact that both Central Florida and South Carolina have appealed for alternative oversight, Bishop Sauls said neither diocese is under scrutiny.

“Appeals for alternative primatial oversight are not in and of themselves a problematic action,” Bishop Sauls said, “It doesn’t rise to the same level. We see no evidence that the leadership in either diocese is attempting to change its name or take property held in trust for the national church…”

An earlier Living Church report is here: Bishops’ Task Force Identifies ‘Problem’ Dioceses which lists them as:

…Dallas, Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Quincy, Rio Grande, San Diego, San Joaquin, and Springfield.

This topic is also covered in an earlier report from ENS.

It looks like San Diego has bee removed from the list of so-called problem dioceses. It was an error in an earlier report, according to the article cited.

"Despite the fact that both Central Florida and South Carolina have appealed for alternative oversight, Bishop Sauls said neither diocese is under scrutiny."

That's odd. When I was in Orlando in early July of this year there were NO EPISCOPAL CHURCH signs, logos or markings on St. Lukes Cathedral/Central Florida...NOT ONE Episcopal Church anything and I checked everywhere including the "Deans Walk" behind the Cathedral and the adjacent Cathedral building on all floors. Every sign said "St. Lukes Network Cathedral"...looked like somethun's was up to me and that was before I listened to Canon Gary give a very sour anti-Episcopal Church homily at their ONLY Sunday mass.
