If you or your friends in The Episcopal Church are still saying, "I don't see a problem" or "Why are these conservatives picking on the nice gay people?", then you have not been paying attention. And TEC is working actively to keep you from paying attention.
In an excellent investigative piece, blogger Greg Griffith of Stand Firm exposes actual messages from TEC communications personnel, describing their desire to hide controversial information about FALSE TEACHINGS and pagan, anti-Christian clergy.
In the post called Under the Radar... and Over the Cliff, Griffith quotes Jim Naughton, the Communications officer of the Diocese of Washington (DC). Naughton, worrying about news coverage of an Episcopal Priest who is a self-proclaimed Muslim, writes:
I fervently hope that it will be possible to ignore this story until it slips back beneath the radar.
Griffith then lays out specific cases in which TEC clergy were outed as pagans, not by their own superiors but by bloggers and investigative reporters:
May 2004 - The Diocese of Michigan co-sponsors "Together in Faith," a seminar featuring workshops by a witch and a trans-gendered pagan.
October 2004 - In the Diocese of Pennsylvania, ordained Episcopal husband-and-wife priests Bill and Glyn Melnyk (who for years had moonlighted as Druid priests) ran into trouble when 815's Office for Women's Ministry published one of the couple's pagan liturgies. Bill Melnyk, known in Druid circles as "Oakwyse" (and occasionally, though inexplicably, "Bran"), left the Episcopal priesthood soon afterward, to become a full-time Druid priest.
April 2006 - Maury Johnston, an Episcopal lay leader whose articles had been published by a number of prominent blogs on the Episcopal left, turned out to be a very active pagan whose nom de coven was "Shadwynn."
May 2006 - The Episcopal Church Center Bookstore in New York was found to be offering a book titled "Love Spells," which contained "...a host of tried and tested spells, potions, and rituals that will help you find out just how to bring love into your life."
TEC church leaders are not looking out for the good of our souls. They are disciplining (and even suing) church members who hold the Biblical faith that we affirm in Baptism, Confirmation and Ordination vows, and turning a blind eye to clergy and others who publically break and disown those vows.
