But Not to Thee

In one sense the Episcopal Church hasn't changed:
five white guys are doing the 'splaining.
As I mentioned a few days ago, I attended the Special Diocesan Convention at Grace Cathedral on Saturday. The clergy and lay delegates voted unanimously to amend canon law to clarify the governance of Diocesan institutions. These amendments are important in pending legal actions concerning the control of valuable Diocesan properties.

Those who have a sense of irony may find it amusing that some delegates waxed indignant that non-Episcopalians are trying to seize control of the church's property. Many of the offended are also "social justice warriors" who advocate lessening property rights---in fact we had discussions on affordable housing and social justice immediately after---but, as the saying goes, property rights apply to me but not to thee.
