Consider the following:

The DIOCESE OF PENNSYLVANIA has a shortfall of between $500,000 and $950,000, and the diocese can barely raise $300,000 from its parishes. Officials will dip into unrestricted net assets again to keep the diocese afloat. And the standing committee wants Bishop Bennison's head on a platter for his unrestrained spending habits (not his theological utterances), which may have depleted the UNA from $4 million to zero. They will need an audit to know for sure.

February 09 2006 By virtueonline More priests, parishes flee...ARCIC dead over women bishops...Parsley, Bennison

It was another week in which priests and parishes fled the Episcopal Church. From Florida to Virginia to San Diego, orthodox priests announced that they had had enough of ECUSA's apostasies and were leaving.

The only question is how will the Episcopal Church's remnant respond? There are rumors of wholesale departures of priests and parishes after GC2006, the like of which we have never seen before. VirtueOnline believes these rumors to be substantially true, but we have been asked not to reveal details at this time.

The line-up read like a Who's Who of orthodox Episcopalians: Dr. Os Guinness, Dr. Stephen Noll, Dr. Ashley Null, Dr. Robert Sanders, Dr. David Scott, Dr. Joe Murphy, Dr. Bill Dickson, Dr. Guy Lytle, a slew of cardinal rectors, and brilliant activist laymen like Dr. Ernest "Bubber" Cockrell, a theologically trained neuro-psychiatrist, all under the watchful and intellectual eye of the Rt. Rev. Dr. C.

It was also a week in which this writer enjoyed open access to eight African primates, other bishops from Africa, an archbishop from Southeast Asia, two Episcopal bishops, and more than 100 clergy.

January 11 2006 By virtueonline Orthodox Priests face Revisionist Bishops hatred...Michigan, Olympia, Virginia

It never happens and, like sheep, they are lead repeatedly, to the slaughter.

Take for example what occurred this week in the DIOCESE OF MICHIGAN. The Rev. Allen Kannapell, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, got thrown out of his church, when the bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wendell N. Gibbs, Jr., told the orthodox rector on Saturday night that he had to vacate his church BEFORE next day's Sunday morning services.

January 05 2006 By virtueonline WELCOME TO 2006...Floridians Flee ECUSA...Maryland Anglicans dumped..Global news

For most of us, we are glad to see the back of 2005. It was, by any definition, a rough year for thousands of orthodox Episcopalians. Many of you left for greener ecclesiastical and theological pastures and shared the relief you felt with me. I, in turn, tried to keep you informed about both those who both left and those who stayed to fight another day.

Liberal hatred for orthodox primates bubbled to the surface when the chairman of the Anglican Consultative Council, Bishop John C. Paterson of Auckland, New Zealand, issued an apology in Canada for the way the Episcopal Church was treated at Nottingham in being made to withdraw from the council. But that was all a fiction and completely imaginary.

By David W. Virtue

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The juxtaposition of the above two statements highlights the crisis in the Episcopal Church. In fact, it might be said that Robinson and Cranmer represent the polarities between the Global South and biblically orthodox Anglicans across the Anglican Communion and the liberal West and North, with its pluriform thinking on matters of faith and practice.

December 14 2005 By virtueonline GRISWOLD'S Disastrous Leadership...20 ECUSA bishops say Crisis real...Recife...

To say that his leadership has been disastrous doesn't really begin to touch it. When he took over from Ed "the flexible" Browning, he promised to be the bishop of all, telling the story about how God had spoken to him in Italy as he visited the significant sites of the life and witness of Francis of Assisi. He said that God told him to "rebuild His church."
