Bucks for Bullying Bishops

I’m about half-dead after a difficult and weird chess tournament this weekend. (Brownville, Texas helped provide the weirdness.) But I’m not so out of it as to not be provoked by this.

Soooo national ECUSA offices are spending money outside the budget to side with bishops in their legal battles with parishes. Given that several (most? all?) of those battles involve bishops who are bullying orthodox parishes . . . well, nice polite Anglican words fail me.

One wag, however, has dubbed the expenditure “bully bucks.” Sounds good to me.

By the way, this is one more BIG reason for those orthodox remaining in ECUSA to make darn sure not one cent of their offerings is going to ECUSA national offices.
