The Diocese of San Diego Fights Dirty

You may have noticed from my focus on the Duke Lacrosse case and other posts that few things anger me as much as abuse of our legal system. Now the Episcopal Church is providing more and more examples of said abuse.

The Diocese of San Diego sued St. John’s Anglican Church, including nine volunteers, and lost. So what do they do? They sue again.

If this isn’t technically harassment and double jeopardy, it is certainly the moral equivalent. The diocese’s re-suit is appalling, descending beneath even secular standards. To say it’s fighting dirty is putting it nicely.

And the Diocese of San Diego doesn’t have the reputation of one of the more militantly liberal TEC dioceses. This may prove to be more typical of the Episcopal Church’s conduct than even the most cynical have expected.
