The Episcopal Church is the American branch of the Anglican Communion, which is the worldwide family begun in the Church of England and generally spread following the British Empire.  

The Episcopal Church struggles to rediscover its identity as a part of the Body of Christ -- not with much success in the last half century.  But, it can be said, there is a Gideon army being raised up....

The two "Strategy" sections below can be used to fine-tune your own strategy for dealing with the homosexual agenda.   Revisionists are extremely vulnerable, but it will take courage and spiritual stability to stand and present the truth.  Spend considerable time on your knees with God.  (See also Homosexuality: Good & Right in the Eyes of God?, especially chapter VI, for details on winning strategy.)

Where are we in the Anglican Communion? - Question by John Rodgers, bishop in AMiA (Anglican Mission in America). 

Episcopal Options...   Ephriam Radnor - and responses

Where is Anglicanism now???   --   a report by the Rt. Rev. John K. Rucyahana , Bishop of the Diocese of Shyira, Rwanda and The Rt. Rev. John H. Rodgers,Jr., Chairman of The Society for the Propagation of Reformed Evangelical Anglican Doctrine (SPREAD).  Often lacking from such a perspective is undergirding in natural theology, an articulation of the cosmological argument for God, which establishes the Biblical worldview on a logical basis, and provides the answer to "evolution" as a cosmic event, and thus makes the Bible a reasonably believable book of revelation. 

Episcopal House of Bishops' Response to the Global Primates on Homosexuality --  More manipulation.  The question is whether the so-called orthodox will be able, not only to stand up and reasonably and gracefully hold their ground, but take the offensive.   If not, they will continue to lose.  And they will have to do it reasonably.   See The Authority of the Bible in a Scientific Age... for how to do this.

Totalitarian Nature of Homosexualism -- World Magazine w. comment by E. Fox

Homosexuality in Church History --   by Allen Dobras

Archbishop of Canterbury says Homosexual persons must change...  An astonishing change of mind....

Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, revealed (no surprise) to be pro-homosexual. 

20 Frequently Asked Questions about Homosexuality --  right out of the Episcopal Cauldron.    Read it, copy it, and pass it out like popcorn. 

The Rt. Rev. Paul E. Moore -- a travesty from which the Episcopal Church and the whole Anglican tradition must repent and recover.

Primates Meet to Unify Broken Church

** Dialogue in Darkness -- or Scientific Debate?   -- on the nature and solution to the terribly destructive debate being conducted on sexuality (and a lot of other) issues.  If you want to win the battle for sexual sanity, read this.  We MUST restore the unity of truth with compassion and of reason with revelation -- or we will continue to lose this war.     E. Fox

David Virtue reports on Primates' meeting

Links to items on Episcopal/Anglican homosexuality furor

Anglican Primates Report from Dromantine, Ireland on discipline of US Episcopal Church

Dar es Salaam meeting - February 2007 

   ** Episcopal "Gay" Bishop , Gene Robinson, responds to demands by Anglican Primates at Dar es Salaam.  by E. Fox.   Robinson is good at what he does.  The problem is that he is either ignorant of the facts, or he is deliberately lying and manipulating.  The test is, always, if he (or we) were wrong, would he (or we) want to know?  Is he willing to get into honest discussion and debate to find out?  If he is not, then he is morally immature or morally corrupt. 

   Episcopal Church put on notice -- Ruth Gledhill 

   Goeffrey Kirk on the Anglican Debacle --  Sees through the failure to call the Episcopal Church to account now. 

   Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, revealed (no surprise) to be pro-homosexual. 

   End of the Anglican Fudge?  Anglicans are noted for their strategy/policy of finding the middle way.  Via Media...  But there is Godly compromise with basic truth. 

   See "Dialogue in Darkness" above...

NIgerian Anglicans will not succumb to pressure from the West - Archbishop Akinola....  Good to get an African viewpoint on the Anglican - Episcopal situation. 

Property Rights in the Church

** Church Hierarchies & Church Property - Peter Toon --  a survey of the differences between hierarchical churches and "democratic" churches.    E. Fox comment.

** 4 Levels of Unity --  E. Fox  

Episcopal Church - Hired Gun against Property Rights...   These people will have a hard time surviving the Last Judgement.   This behavior may be "legal" in some warped sense of the word, but it is criminal behavior in the eyes of God.  E. Fox. 

Property Rights in the Episcopal Church --  The Episcopal Church is NOT hierarchical in matters of property, and was not from the beginning.  The Parish is the Basic Unit...  By the Revs. Tim Smith and George Conger.  

Property Canons   

Anglican Polity  --  Louis Tarsitano

Judge rules in favor of Episcopal Breakaway groups -- Julia Duin, Washington Times.  Thanks be to God for a judge who appears to understand law and justice.    E. Fox. 

Episcopal Church Polity -- Is a Diocese Free to Leave the Episcopal Church? -- Yes, says Mark McCall...  A thorough documentation of the legal aspects.  TEC is NOT 'hierarchical' in the legal sense often taken by the courts.  The legal argument appears to be clear and plain.   E. Fox.  

Strategy: Winning the Sexuality Battle - It is never too late to start telling the truth...

** Truth or Rabbit Trails???  --  The KEY to WINNING    (NOTE - 2011) The Episcopal Church failed, and the pseudo-conservative leadership surrendered it -- they would not stand up, the pseudo-liberals did not "win" it.  E. Fox) 

** 1-Sheet 2-page Strategy for Turning the Homosexuality Tide --
to copy and distribute to your friends, clergy, politicians, educators, study groups.

            But, no, the devil is in the details....

Homosexuality:  Winnng is Sifting --  Report on November 3 Press Club Conference --  Good summary of how not to win and how to win sexuality wars.
