Episcopal Summit To End Gay Feud Ends In Failure
http://www.365gay.com/Newscon06/09/091306episc.htm

Episcopal bishops at odds over homosexuality ended a private meeting Wednesday saying they had failed to reach agreement over dioceses that reject the authority of the church's incoming national leader, who supports gay relationships.

The 11 bishops said they "were unable to come to common agreement on the way forward," although they recognized the need to accommodate the dissenting dioceses.

"The level of openness and charity in this conference allow us to pledge to hold one another in prayer and to work together until we have reached the solution God holds out for us," the bishops said in a statement. They did not say whether another meeting was planned.

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the spiritual leader of the world Anglican Communion, had asked the U.S. bishops to hold the talks. He is struggling to keep the Anglican family unified despite deep rifts over whether same-gender partnerships violate Scripture.


good-maybe the cons will take the hint and push off

1. Probably the best way.
The conservatives split. Everybody has a church that fits their needs.
