Anglican rift – a little hardball

A small Anglican church in Toronto has been locked out of its building in consequence of its vote to leave the Canadian diocese in favour of a more conservative South American one. One suspects that this church is singled out because it is small.

The whole scene is not entirely promising … note that the pastor of this small church is female:

Within days of the vote, their minister, Rev. Barbara Richardson, was suspended by the diocese. She later resigned from the national church and has been licensed as a priest with Venables’ church.

This battle looks to be getting uglier by the day.
