Presumably this is an interim judgement - pending further action by Bishop Lawrence to distance parishes of his diocese from fellowship in TEC?

Diocesans on the committee realising this was overreach and bad for rule by law. Thank God. As Naughton has said, 'no more sideshows please.' Indeed. CFL, Dallas, TN, W-TX, W-LA and even NJ (which negotiated with parishes wanting to leave) and others would have been next. You can't invent a polity by this means. The Bishops looked at the canons and ruled properly.

I think you are correct, Ron. The recent activity involving quit-claim will have to be dealt with de novo. However, I think it falls under a different category than abandonment, and if charged will take a different course.
