Listen up, People!

At GC '06 I heard a "person" from TEC say that when the bishop of Fort Worth started trying to take the property out of TEC, TEC would be there to make certain that it went nowhere.
Ok...So where are you? Seems too much to me as though people are ignoring Jack Leo Iker just as they always have...treating him as though he is a misbehaving three year old...letting him have his tantrum in the other room. Problem is...there are a lot of us in this room that are having to put up with his tantrums while the rest of the church just goes on about its way...wish we could...

Katie says it all so much better so I'll hush and let y'all read her.

Attention! Legal help requested!

Here’s the thing -- in places such as Virginia, Georgia, etc., the diocesan bishops are using diocesan resources to help people who want to stay in The Episcopal Church. They seem to be getting ample help from the national church.But in the Diocese of Fort Worth, the bishop and all the diocesan leadership and nearly all the clergy are using diocesan resources to try to take all the diocesan property out of The Episcopal Church.So here it’s a bunch of lay people who are struggling to keep our property in TEC. Mostly it has been Fort Worth Via Media working on this. Even the clergy who might want to stay in TEC don’t trust us [the bishop has branded us liars, thieves, and troublemakers since the day we formed the organization] or the other clergy enough to band together with us.This has made meeting Bonnie Anderson’s challenge to saddle our own horses, well, a challenge.
