A conservative Episcopal faction that used the church's name to promote its agenda on the Internet has agreed to stop the practice after a lawsuit was filed by liberal bishops. Under a deal approved earlier this month by U.S. District Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, Bishop William C. Wantland of Wisconsin agreed to stop using the name of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America--and its acronym. In return, the New Jersey bishops agreed to drop claims for damages.
