TEC Diocese of Pennsylvania Sues Good Shepherd

The Episcopal Church is going after Good Shepherd Rosemont . . . again. And Good Shepherd has not picked a fight. Just the opposite.

“We approached the Diocese of Pennsylvania to seek an amicable solution. Now we are stunned to receive their response of aggression with the intent to terminate the life and mission of a diverse Christian community engaged in healing the sick, caring for the poor, and witnessing to the love of God as set forth in the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” Bishop Moyer said.

One would think that after years of a “bishop,” one Charles Bennison, who spouted heresy and covered up child abuse, The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Pennsylvania would have enough shame and enough class to take the out of a settlement and finally to leave Good Shepherd be.

One would think.

Thank you so very much for your comments.
Indeed one would think The Episcopal Church and, particularly, the standing committee of the diocese of Pennsylvania would have had enough shame and common decency for what they have already done to The Church of the Good Shepherd, Rosemont and to its faithful and courageous rector, the Right Rev. David L. Moyer through the years, to not again engage in utter madness and duplicity.
But, that was not to be.
The very best article about what is currently happening to The Church of the Good Shepherd can be found at http://thebulletin.us/articles/2009/03/13/commentary/op-eds/doc49b9e96acb66f301425961.txt truly a "must read".
Thank you again so very much for your thoughtful remarks. Please keep Bishop Moyer, his wonderful family, all parishioners, the legal teams and supporters in your prayers.
