Episcopal bishop to resign as leader of Norfolk-based diocese
Virginian-Pilot ^ | October 4, 2005 | Virginian-Pilot

Bishop David C. Bane Jr., who has led the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia since 1998, has announced that he plans to retire from the post in February.


Bane has said his detractors disliked his style of looking to the grassroots to define the diocese’s priorities.

Critics had said he failed to exercise the leadership necessary to guide the diocese through financial and other problems.

The diocese has 37,000 members and more than 120 parishes.

I moved from Southern Virginia 6 years ago. Still have lots of contacts. Bane voted against Robinson's consecration. The Deputation voted unaminously for it. Bane sought to appease everybody. I expect the interim and replacement bishop will be a little less kind to the Evangelical/Conservatives. I always love it when the Episcopal Church reports membership. Think Million Man math.

"Bane voted against Robinson's consecration"

I guess this is what happens when you staunchly stand up for something you believe in when you are surrounded by immoral liberals.

The trouble is Bane tried to have it both ways. He hadn't reckoned the degree to which the revisionists had penetrated the diocese.

Thanks to Credo for spotting this.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar, Huber and newheart.
