    A story is told about a General in the Second World War who shouted to his men. "The enemy are on our North, our South, our East, and our West. Men, they've got us surrounded! There's NO WAY they can ESCAPE!" In a peculiar way this describes the present situation of the Diocese of San Joaquin. It was anecdotes like this which displayed the tremendous spirit of our soldiers and our nation. For years now there have been internal skirmishes within the Episcopal Church. The battles have been over different issues but the underlying CAUSE is always the same. It's...

    Midwest Conservative Journal ^ | 10/25/2005 | Christopher Johnson
    Down here, I suggested that Via Media's casual invocation of Frank Griswold's name in its recent minutes did not necessarily mean that Frank supported the group or its plans.  Greg Griffith, on the other hand, thinks that Frank and Via Media are already tight: Now we come to what is perhaps the most important line in the whole document: Need to coordinate with PB on these appointments. A broad reading of this might mean that Via Media expects it can coordinate the whole blitzkrieg - from blank presentments on - with Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold. But under even the strictest...
  • Episcopal liberals prepare for split

    A liberal Episcopal group is crafting a strategy to disenfranchise about 16 conservative bishops if the denomination's pivotal General Convention next year in Columbus, Ohio, results in a church split. Informally named the "Day After" for the aftermath of the June 13-21 event, the strategy outlines a way to file canonical charges against conservative bishops, unseat them from their dioceses, have interim bishops waiting to replace them and draft lawsuits ready to file before secular courts for possession of diocesan property. The strategy was revealed in a leaked copy of minutes drafted at a Sept. 29 meeting in Dallas of...

    An Episcopal group has a doomsday plan that calls for ousting conservative bishops and seizing church property if they attempt to break from the denomination over its increasingly liberal position on homosexuality. The so-called "Day After" plan could kick in as early as June, when the Episcopal Church USA holds its General Convention in Columbus, Ohio, according to minutes from a closed steering committee meeting of the group Via Media. Joan Gunderson of Aspinwall, who served as recording secretary for committee meeting in late September, said nothing from the strategy session has been approved by the group's leadership. "The minutes...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Cynthia P. Brust 770-414-1515  Minutes from a Steering Committee meeting of Via Media USA have been leaked to the media, exposing plans to seize control of Anglican Communion Network (ACN) dioceses following General Convention 2006.  Code-named “Day After”, the Via Media strategy outlines specific preparations and plans to “have ready blank presentments for abandonment of the communion” and todeclare the “see” in ACN dioceses as “vacant, requesting appointment of interim bishop[s] in coordination with “the PB” [ECUSA Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold].  Additional tactics include preparing the groundwork for special conventions in these dioceses in order to...

    Via Media, the liberal pansexual organization that bills itself as The Episcopal Church's "middle way", combining progressive and traditional approaches to the Bible, tradition, and human understanding, betrayed its true agenda when committee notes from one of their meetings were handed to VirtueOnline recently. What we learned was a strategy being planned for the "Day After" the next General Convention in 2006 when presumably the momentum already begun by many orthodox parishes and priests to leave the ECUSA, will accelerate. It was though the plans of the Nazis after they had invaded Poland was to make sure that Fascism would...

    VIA MEDIA SPINS 'MIDDLE WAY' WHILE PUSHING ALL OUT FOR CHANGED CHURCH News Analysis By David W. Virtue Almost a dozen revisionist Episcopal groups meeting under the banner of Via Media will meet in Atlanta March 25-27 to, in the words of Lionel Deimel, president of Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh, "swap notes, meet each other and plan strategy." That's a half-truth. They will meet to figure out how to deal with, bend to their will and destroy, if it comes to that, the biblically orthodox minority in The Episcopal Church. It is absolutely ironic that they call themselves the Via...
