Every time she opens her mouth, she makes the case for leaving TEC even more convincing.

Notable quotes include:

...the federal Constitution is clear about the separation of church and state...

Wrong.

But the reality also is that congregations and dioceses are structures of the institutional church known as the Episcopal Church.

No, the reality is that congregations are part of the Body of Christ, which knows no bounds. Dioceses (and TEC) are man-made organizational structures.

Money that’s given is meant to be given as an expression of gratitude, not as a tax, although people sometimes see it that way.

It's a tax, judging by the way the folks at Christ Church in Savannah were treated by their Bishop recently.

The church is thriving in so many places.

Wrong. Many folks I know from my parish have left since Gene Robinson was installed as Bishop of New Hampshire.

Those are questions that the Episcopal Church is well poised and well experienced in helping people to find answers. Not provide answers, but help people wrestle with the questions.

Well, we don’t come with a prescribed set of answers.

Oh, come on, KJS.

Now, this one took the cake:

The Anglican tradition of Christianity is world-affirming, it is focused on incarnation, and it insists that we’re not meant to shut ourselves off from the world in a pietistic sense or in a sectarian sense. That we’re meant to be in the world, and transforming the world into something that looks more like the reign of God.

KJS, your views are most definitely world-affirming, because you are in this world, and you are of this world, and you are transforming TEC into an institution of this world.

Yeah, JKS believes that it doesn't matter what you believe, you can find, no, you can create your own salvation. You can make it happen! She wants to make heaven on earth? Last I heard, that was God's job.

Next thing you know, she'll be claiming that she is the reincarnation of Jesus!
