Conservative Episcopalians Keep Church Properties

Religion News Service reports an important court ruling in favor of conservative Episcopalians in Texas led by Bishop Jack Iker. The congregations had seceded from the Episcopal Church USA but had to go to court in order to retain their church properties. Issues mentioned in the article include the congregations’ disappointment with the ordination of openly homosexual leaders, concerns about the authority of Scripture, and Bishop Iker referring women seeking ordination to other dioceses.
