S.C.Diocese seeks re-hearing of Supreme Court Decision

http://www.anglican.ink/article/sc-diocese-seek-rehearing-state-supreme-court decision<

In the wake of the latest decision by South Carolina's Supreme Court, which granted TEC's right of ownership of certain properties alienated by a previous ruling in favour of the schismatic 'Diocese of South Carolina, which separated itself from membership of TEC, (the Episcopal Church in the USA); its bishop, Mark Lawrence, has announced his plans to appeal against this latest judgement that restores the right of TEC to retain contested property.

There can be little doubt that, if the latest judgement is upheld against further appeals, ACNA's hold on properties alienated from TEC's ownership will significantly reduce ACNA's assets in South Carolina – a situation that will give cause to encouragement of TEC's hope for the restitution of other properties claimed by schismatics in the U.S.A.

This latest development will surely give food for thought to any other provinces of the world-wide Anglican Communion where dissidents might seek legal alienation of properties from the guardianship of their local Anglican Churches.
