Episcopal Churches Consider Splitting, Joining Hardcore Nigerian Communion

From The Washington Post:

Two of the country's largest and most historic Episcopal congregations -- both in Fairfax County -- will vote next week on whether to leave the U.S. church on ideological grounds and affiliate instead with a controversial Nigerian archbishop. The decision could lead to a bitter court battle and the loss of $25 million in property.

As usual, "ideological grounds" means "a problem with gay people." The Nigerian archbishop in question is one Peter J. Akinola, who not only hates gayness but also supports making homosexuality a criminal offense. I suppose Akinola can appeal to Leviticus 20:13 to support his stance, but in much of the world locking people up for being gay is a human rights violation.
