Hardball
Midwest Conservative Journal, 6/29/2006

The last couple of days have been invigorating for orthodox Episcopalians.  But these should be under no illusions.  The TECkies will play rough:

Dioceses and congregations, however, do not officially "leave" the Episcopal Church simply because leaders or any number of members depart, said the Rev. Jan Nunley, deputy for Communication at the Episcopal Church Center in New York. "Parishes are created by dioceses and dioceses are created by action of the General Convention," she said. "People are free to leave," but congregations and dioceses continue within church structures.

Nunley confirmed that the Episcopal Church’s elected leadership may, if necessary, declare a diocese vacant, and that in such a case the Presiding Bishop would call for the election of a new diocesan bishop, among other actions.

"So step one is to promise them a long legal battle for every scrap of property and every dime in every bank account. We need to make it clear they will spend the next ten years litigating.

Spoken like true godly, humble Christians.
