Here I stand. I can do no other. I will neither compromise the Faith once delivered to the saints, nor will I abandon the sheep who elected me to protect them.
Pax et bonum in Christ Jesus our Lord,
(Update: Delightfully, the Episcopal Life [ENS] story including this letter is entitled "Pittsburgh bishop declines Presiding Bishop's offer of reconciliation"!)
UPDATE: PITTSBURGH passed the first reading of their amendment to remove their "accession clause" to TEC's constitution today by an overwhelming margin! From Stand Firm:
Lay total 177
That is almost 67% in favor.
Clergy total 133
That is almost 82% in favor!
