“The amendments (to the Constitution of the Diocese of Fort Worth) also add the Bishop as a member of the Board, he was not previously. Again you can see a bunch of prior planning to try and wrestle the property of TEC away from the TEC and into local control.” – ‘Est Anima Legis’ – If this is true, then surely the secession of the Diocese of Fort Worth from the family of TEC was already being planned at the time of agreement to this amendment.
