South Carolina Episcopalians ditch Christianity

Reuters - A majority of parishes in the conservative Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina voted on Saturday to leave the U.S. Episcopal Church over disagreements on issues including the national church's ordination of gay clergy and acceptance of same-sex unions.

The South Carolina diocese is the fifth Episcopalian diocese in the United States to leave the church's national body.... Congregations in San Joaquin, California; Quincy, Illinois; Fort Worth, Texas; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have also left the U.S. Episcopal Church in recent years.

Well, as they say, don't let the door hit you on the way out, Dio of SC. Um, remember that gospel thing, that compassion thing?? Holy cow. Just sign me a disgusted lifelong Episcopalian.
