So: we got a foot-dragging liberal Carnley heading the POR; handy-dandy non-compliance at the ECUSA-pandering Communion Office (looks like Kearon was a bust on that score); and to add insult to injury topastoral negligence, we have the arbitrary decisions on which cases eventually get dealt with (the victimized CT-6, anyone?) … (standfirminfaith)

ANGLICAN-TV VID here: Interview with Fr. Kroeger of St John’s Anglican (San Diego)

St. John’s Anglican is in Fallbrook, California. The congregation voted in July of 2006 to move under the Bishop of Luwero in the Province of Uganda (copy of initial press release here). The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego brought a lawsuit in September of 2006 against St. John’s to claim the property—see more info here and here. In November, a San Diego Superior Court judge ruled against the Diocese and in favor of St. John’s. This AnglicanTV interview was done a few weeks after that ruling and right after the Diocese of San Joaquin convention, which Fr. Kroeger attended. The Diocese of San Diego then tried to revive its lawsuit and this was denied as well on February 1, 2007, by the same Superior Court judge. Interviewed by Anne Coletta for AnglicanTV
Recorded at St. John’s in December, 2006
