“With more parishes leaving the Episcopal Church, it is widely expected by legal experts on both sides that ECUSA will be filing more lawsuits like this one,” said Raymond Dague, the attorney for St. Andrews. “I expect that they will be no more successful here than they were in the California litigation. Still, this is all very sad, because it reveals how mean-spirited the folks on the other side of this issue can be. This is a long way from how a church should behave.” . . .
