Baptist-sized schism-Interesting piece in the National Post on a building Anglican schism in British Columbia. A liberal diocese's plan to bless homosexual unions has brought opposition for the conservatives in the district. Four conservative bishops from Africa, Asia and North Dakota were visiting to support the conservatives. I'm not sure if either of the Africans are affiliated with the Archbishop of Rwanda, who is sponcering breakaway conservative parishes in the US. I thought this was interesting-
The tour, which began yesterday, is set to peak on Sunday with a service and rally for an expected group of about 1,000 supporters from eight parishes opposed to the same-sex plan. The gathering is expected to be so large that the Anglicans have had to borrow a Baptist church large enough to hold it.
