Conservatives Object to Episcopal Positions

September 02, 2000|Religion News Service

A coalition of conservative Episcopalians has launched an informal network of pastors and parishes "parallel" to the national church structure because of a "pastoral emergency."

Meeting recently in Nassau, Bahamas, several conservative organizations launched a "united effort" to meet the needs of and lobby for conservative positions within the 2.5-million-member Episcopal Church.

Conservatives say the church has betrayed biblical teaching on issues such as homosexuality and argue that there is no room for them within the existing church structure.
