April 10 2004 By virtueonline Faith vs. Polity - Bishop Fitz Allison responds to Rev. Zabriskie

Thus, we are "entitled" to differ regarding important theological
and ethical matters" such as denying catholic Christology and the doctrine
of the Trinity (Pike), theism and saving action of Christ (Spong), and
Christianity itself (Carter Heyward) but we must respect bishops who
currently admit they, as a House, are "dysfunctional."

April 10 2004 By virtueonline Faith vs. Polity - Rev. Zabriskie writes to Bishop Fitz Allison

Good friends and good Episcopalians are welcomed and entitled to differ
regarding important theological and ethical matters. This has and always
will be the case, if our tradition continues in its historic matter.

April 08 2004 By virtueonline Forward in Faith Leader Reacts to HOB DEPO Statement

For this we can be grateful, because it allows for a clear analysis of what the Bishops of ECUSA actually have in mind. They write, “As we exercise pastoral leadership in our dioceses, we pledge ourselves to work always towards the fullest relationship, seeking, as the Archbishop of Canterbury has said, ‘the highest degree of communion.’”

April 06 2004 By virtueonline Gay Marriage: The Train has left the Station

The leadership of Grace Cathedral unanimously supports gay
couples and their families. At the same time, we acknowledge this is a
significant and historical departure from tradition. We take very
seriously some people's misgivings. Breaking the law is no small matter.
But what's done is done. Meanwhile, our concern and conviction is that
the time is long overdue for gay and lesbian people to have the support

Upon arrival, I was met at the airport by Waiel, one of my

Here is a bishop who blatantly and arrogantly violated the canons and the constitution of the church. Yet, in his mind, how you violate those documents makes a difference. If you violate the canons, creeds Articles of Religion, and the Constitution, by allowing heresy, or anti-scriptural behavior, that is admissible and proper, but, if you take an orthodox and biblical stand for righteousness then that is sinful and wicked. Do you consider this convoluted thinking?

March 31 2004 By virtueonline The Implosion of a Small Parish - by Bob Seitz

It became subtly obvious not long after the General Convention that there are two sides to this debate, and they are emotionally incompatible. (The exception, of course, is the larger group of the apathetic and purely parochial in outlook -- the "what's a presiding bishop?" crowd.)

March 27 2004 By virtueonline Let's Heed the Call to the Promised Land - by Claudia C. Kalis

The Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and Parishes has made magnanimous and ingenious efforts to try to respond to the tear streaked faces of the orthodox who stand pleading, … “Fix it.
