An excerpt from an article by Michael Davenport:
It doesn’t matter that the properties were bought, paid for, and lovingly maintained by the congregations of each church, whether liberal or conservative. Ingham aspires to be the 1950s husband, turning the wife out with nothing but the clothes on her back, holding up the deed to the house and saying, “See, it’s in my name. Right here.”
Modern society, of course, understands that husband and wife, as peers, both have property rights regardless of the name on the deed.
So let’s be civil about this. This divorce (or “schism” as Ingham calls it) is a reality.
Anglican liberals need to be more liberal: They need to accept the conservatives as peers rather than vassals or chattel, and negotiate a reasonable division of assets.
This is the 21st century, for goodness’ sake.
