Well, yes, my headline is slightly inaccurate. But The Episcopal Church and its puppet diocese trying represent themselves in court as the Diocese of Ft. Worth reminds me of the Monty Python sketch in which a variety of disreputable characters declare themselves to be the Bishop of East Anglia – in other words, very silly. The Second Court of Appeals of Texas did not exactly declare TEC’s strategy to be silly, but close enough. The strategy was very firmly disallowed in their ruling.
More erudite analysis may be found over at the Anglican Curmudgeon, of course. The real Diocese of Ft. Worth’s statement on the ruling may be found here.
