Oh? Quelle surprise!

Slate Magazine: The anti-war movement was really just anti-Republican

This is the problem when the leadership of the Episcopal Church takes sides in secular political ideology.  Since the United States is divided fairly evenly between the two political parties, to support one half of the nation against the other half, dress it up as an "anti-war" theology, and sprinkle it with spiritual condescension, means that the Episcopal Church appears to disdain half of its potential membership.

I won't get into how it also is a violation of the Gospel teaching, as I think the link presents enough of a challenge to my fellow clergy.
