Tony Snow: Bush will have no comment on property dispute

The developing disagreements in the United States over "gay" marriage are "ecclesiastical," according to a spokesman for President Bush, and he won't comment on them.

"The president is not going to comment, nor am I, on ecclesiastical disputes," Bush spokesman Tony Snow said yesterday.

He was responding to a question from Les Kinsolving, WND's correspondent at the White House.

"This concerns the president's oath to support and defend the Constitution … [and its] freedom of religion," Kinsolving asked. "Does the president believe that national religious leaders should be able to confiscate all the property of local churches who vote to leave their denomination because they agree with the president's expressed conviction [. . .]?"

Snow said there would be no comment on the issue that is wracking the Episcopal Church USA right now.
