You've Got A Nice Diocese There, Bishop Iker [TEC]
Midwest Conservative Journal ^ | 11/01/2006 | Christopher Johnson

The new Presiding Bishop thinks it would a shame if anything were to happen to it:

Several persons[and it's none of your business whether any of them were named Chane or Bruno] have told me recently that they believe that your diocese, within the past few or several years, has amended its Constitution in some way that can be read[by Katharine Jefferts Schori] as cutting against an "unqualified accession" to the Constitution and canons of the Episcopal Church. First of all, could you please send me a copy of your Constitution so that I can have first-hand knowledge on this score.

Second, if your diocese has indeed adopted such an amendment, then, on behalf of the Presiding Bishop, I want to express the hope that your diocese will promptly begin the process of amending its Constitution to declare clearly[to Katharine Jefferts Schori] an "unqualified accession" as Article V of the Church’s Constitution plainly requires[because we're not playing around with you reactionaries anymore]. If your diocese should decline to take that step[which would be a really foolish move on your part], the Presiding Bishop will have to consider what sort of action she must take in order to bring your diocese into compliance[and whatever that action turns out to be, I can assure you that you're not going to like it].

With warm regards,

David Booth Beers
