Disintegration [All Saints, Woodbridge, VA votes to leave]
Midwest Conservative Journal ^ | 12/11/2006 | Christopher Johnson

The results of the vote by All Saints Episcopal Church of Woodbridge, Virginia to withdraw the parish from the Diocese of Virginia and TEC are in.  And they're not even remotely close:

The Rector, Wardens and Vestry have announced that the motion to disaffiliate from The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Virginia has carried with 402 votes in favor and 6 against. This being more than the required two-thirds majority, the motion is carried!

If you happen to sue these folks out of their meeting house, Pete, best of luck keeping the parish going with only six people.  But I'm sure that Virginia's liberals will be more than happy to pick up the slack. 

Thanks to Stand Firm for the heads-up.
