It appears there's been yet another defection in the Anglican Communion. This time, it's the diocese in Quincy, Illinois. The reason, of course, is the growing apostasy of the Episcopal Church, which is the U.S. arm of the Anglican Communion. The chief reason this controversy has erupted is the decision to allow an openly homosexual bishop to remain in office.
I note with a grim chuckle that the head of the Episcopal Church, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, said she "laments the departure." She doesn't lament it enough to repent, and the rest of the Anglican Communion doesn't appear to lament the schism enough to repent. And because of their incessant inclination to give the middle finger to Scripture, this schism will continue to widen as more Bible-believing Anglicans and Episopalians leave for more orthodox ground.
