False: "200 of the 7000 congregations in The Episcopal Church have opted out"

Just because you read it in The Times today doesn't make it so. Here's the offending sentence,
More than 200 of the 7,000 Episcopal congregations in the US have opted out of the covenant.
When the Washington Post made the same error back in June epiScope was there to correct the record,
There's no hard evidence presented to back it up, for one good reason: not all, or even most, of those congregations--however many there are--ever were TEC congregations.
