Other Problems With GenCon06

Looks like there were additional problems at The Episcopal Church's 2006 General Convention I failed to note:

"The Convention refused to undo the Executive Council's actions of affliating ECUSA with a pro-abortion group NARAL, and refused by a huge margin to take up legislation affirming the uniqueness of Jesus Christ as Lord and the only name under heaven by which you can be saved."

There were a few of many, I'm sure. However, the first is particularly troubling -- and one not limited to TEC by any means. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) also funds abortion. I'd be surprised if the UCC did not consider it the eighth sacrament.

How can any church uphold something so universally condemned by all Church Fathers? (Also see this excellent article for more on the history of the Orthodox Church's view of abortion.)

Well, the thing is, the non-Orthodox Churches do a lot of other things universally condemned by the Church Fathers, so having a wacked-out view of abortion is but one thing in a long list that separates them from us.
