Re "Push to Be Inclusive Creates a Divide," Sept. 5: The Episcopal bishop of Los Angeles, the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, believes in a religion of inclusion; he does not believe that Jesus is the only way to an afterlife. What then, is this faith that he is so adamantly defending and preserving? Faith in his own interpretations? Bruno's understanding of inclusion means denouncing the breakaway churches' interpretations as "literalistic and simplistic." Perhaps those churches were right.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Wednesday ordered leaders of a former Episcopal church in La Crescenta by Oct. 12 to turn over church property to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, marking the latest wrinkle in a long-running legal dispute. St. Luke's Anglican Church and the diocese have been feuding since 2006, when a majority of the parish's congregants voted to pull out of the diocese and the 2.1-million-member Episcopal Church because of differences over biblical authority and interpretation, including the national church's decision to consecrate an openly gay bishop.

In another setback for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, an Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that two conservative breakaway parishes were the rightful owners of their church buildings and other property. The decision in favor of All Saints Church in Long Beach and St. David's Church in North Hollywood was not unexpected. Last August, the same judge, David C. Velasquez, handed down a similar ruling in favor of St. James Church in Newport Beach.

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles is the rightful owner of the buildings and other property of a conservative La Crescenta congregation that broke away from the diocese last year, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. The decision by Judge John Shepard Wiley Jr. against St. Luke's of the Mountains came more than a week after an appeals court panel in Orange County ruled in favor of the six-county Los Angeles Diocese in a similar property dispute with three other parishes.

Moving to assert control over three breakaway parishes, the Episcopal bishop of Los Angeles on Friday appointed two assistant bishops to serve the congregations and said he would appoint new lay governing boards. The move by the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, communicated in letters dated Sept. 1 but delivered Friday, escalated what probably will be a protracted legal battle over ownership of the parish property and Bruno's jurisdiction over the breakaway priests.
