Expected nothing less from Alexander, who is a screaming liberal and a tyrant.

It will be war to the knife, and he will use every weapon at his disposal to punish and humiliate the members of this parish.

Georgia law is in the bishop's favor -- BUT the joker in the deck is what happens in Dar-Es-Salaam. Georgia law recognizes the hierarchical churches as being in charge of the property -- BUT, what if the local leadership of the hierarchical church has been thrown out of the Anglican Communion? Then it's no longer in charge, is it now?

Glad it's not MY church building and graveyard riding on whatever the Georgia Supreme Court happens to decide.

You've raised an interesting question, given that (P)ECUSA's charter (or some subsequent document) identifies itself as a member of the wwAC. I wonder if that's been struck from the TEC document -- and if so, how the Dennis Canon might apply across such changes.

I smell much money for lawyers in this...

The Supreme Court has had to slap down the Georgia courts before on issues of church property.
