Local Paper (1): Episcopal Church lifts ban on gays, lesbians

Opponents, including many in the Diocese of South Carolina, argued that the Episcopal Church was sacrificing the authority of Scripture and ecclesiastic tradition for multiculturalism and political correctness.

"There are now some participants in the 76th General Convention who are trying to pretend that a 'yes' to (the new resolution) is not a 'no' to (the moratorium)," Harmon said in a statement. "These types of attempted obfuscations are utterly unconvincing."

Harmon said he agreed with those who characterized the vote as a defacto repudiation of the moratorium.
