  • Almost every word on Rothschild [WIS] highway sign misspelled

    ROTHSCHILD (WAOW)-- A sign directing drivers onto Business Highway 51 in Rothschild spelled every word incorrectly except for "exit." A spokesperson with the Department of Transportation says it should be fixed tomorrow morning. He says the company who made the sign apparently just put a few letters out of order and added some extra letters. He joked that it was quote "just a bad day" for whoever made it.
  • Bishop Schofield’s Address To Convention

    Thousands of years ago two men stood before Pharaoh and said, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Let my people go...’ (Exodus 5.1) Pharaoh’s response? He increased the work load and took away the resources that the people of Israel had come to depend on. You know the story as well as I do. And, as one of our young priests reminded me recently, after the plagues, the exodus from Egypt, followed by the great deliverance at the Red Sea, when the Promised Land came into view, Moses sent the heads of each of the twelve...

    Dear Bishop Schori: Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, our one and only Lord and Savior. I have read your letter of December 3, 2007 and thank you for your prayers. There is a pastoral tone to this letter which is much appreciated. Informing me that you are not writing with any threats is most encouraging also. One would hope that this indicates your serious consideration of the Primates’ specific request that deposition and litigation under the present circumstances be abandoned as unacceptable behavior among Christians. Please know I do not share your feelings that I am isolated. My...
  • From the Desk of the Bishop of San Joaquin

    One of the greatest problems the Church faces today is the willingness to ascribe motivations and “hidden agendas” to those who disagree with us. This escalates not only our suspicion of others but levels of anger. Actions based more upon rumors and fear rather than facts cause us to separate ourselves from one another. At this writing in early September we are all aware of momentous decisions that lie ahead. The American House of Bishops has been presented with the deadline of Sept. 30 to turn from unbiblical theology and practices. Those who plead for more time and dialogue claiming...

    In previous property disputes hundreds of miles to the south, a Superior Court judge dismissed lawsuits filed by the Los Angeles Episcopal Diocese against three conservative breakaway parishes in Long Beach and Newport Beach claiming to be the owners of their churches. The diocese has appealed those rulings. However, late last year a different Superior Court judge allowed the diocese to proceed with a lawsuit filed against a breakaway Episcopal church in La Crescenta. That suit also seeks a declaration that the property is owned by the diocese. “It’s the Wild West out there,” Jan Nunley, spokeswoman for the Episcopal...

  • Episcopal Diocese Votes to Secede From Church

    FRESNO, CA--An Episcopal diocese in California overwhelmingly passed a series of resolutions yesterday that position it to secede from the Episcopal Church and affiliate with conservatives in the global Anglican Communion. If the Diocese of San Joaquin affirms the move in a second vote next year, the small diocese, with 48 parishes and 7,000 members, would be the first to try to break from the Episcopal Church, which has been torn by conflict since the consecration of a gay bishop in 2003. Until now, only individual parishes have severed ties. The vote by the diocese is one more step in...

    The Columbus Dispatch ^ | 11/24/2006 | Daniel Burke, Religion News Service
    A battle is brewing in the Episcopal Church over the Diocese of San Joaquin, Calif., which is poised to be the first diocese to secede and position itself as the "vanguard" of a new U.S. branch of Anglicanism. Home to an estimated 10,000 Episcopalians, the diocese will vote on amendments that would remove all ties to the national church at its convention next Friday and Saturday. San Joaquin Bishop John-David Schofield said the 2.2 million-member Episcopal Church is "preaching and practicing heresy" with its progressive approach to homosexuality and the Bible. In a letter to parishioners, Schofield said his diocese...

    Midwest Conservative Journal ^ | 11/22/2006 | Christopher Johnson
    The TECleft thinks it's found a scandal in the TECright: Perhaps even more ironically, Bishop Schofield is a "recovering homosexual" committed to celibacy: the kind of gay bishop that Archbishop Akinola can accept. Which prompted this classy response from a certain mid-Missouri lesbian: Now, it all begins to make sense to me. I am familiar with this kind of self-loathing person who attacks gay men and lesbians! Lord knows, we saw African-Americans like this during the civil rights movement in the 1960s and ’70s. We had a word for them. This story has since been confirmed by Brad Drell and...

    American Anglican Council ^ | 8/11/2006 | Edward E. Plowman
    The rumblings of Episcopalians at war are getting louder, and they are being heard in the distant reaches of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church (TEC) is the 2.3-million-member U.S. constituent of the fast-growing Communion, which claims nearly 80 million members in 38 provinces or regions, the majority of them in the predominantly conservative "global south." TEC's waywardness in doctrine over the years, culminating in recent approval of gay sex and now rejection of Anglican calls to repentance, has landed it in deep trouble. Its conservatives are heading for the exits, and many in the Communion are poised to...

    Dear Friends, It was at my personal request of the editor of the San Joaquin Star that this month’s publication be delayed for the good reason that the decision of the Primates of our worldwide Anglican Communion regarding the status of the American and Canadian Provinces would be made known after our normal deadline for publication. Since that time, the Primates have spoken. Indeed, due to very frank conversations with one another, the full time set aside for deliberation at their meeting in Ireland was not needed. Their communique was issued…earlier than expected.What has become clear is that the days...
