Episcopal Parishes in Virginia Break Away Over Gays

From The Advocate:

Two of the most prominent and largest Episcopal parishes in Virginia voted overwhelmingly Sunday to leave the Episcopal Church and join fellow Anglican conservatives to form a rival denomination in this country. Truro Church in Fairfax and the Falls Church (located in the city of Falls Church) plan to place themselves under the leadership of Anglican archbishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria, who has called the growing acceptance of same-sex relationships a "satanic attack" on the church.

I respect the right of these and other churches to follow a different path, but the reason for it saddens me. The further splintering of God's people--that's Satan's work.
