By on 6.19.06 | 3:13PM

But the real story is how her election further divides a fractured ECUSA by continuing along a radically unorthodox path. The American Anglican Council lists major concerns, including her vote to consecrate Gene Robinson as bishop, her support for the church to bless same-sex marriage, and her vote against a resolution affirming basic tenets of Christian doctrine.

Her election sends a clear message to the Anglican Communion that her leadership will continue the revisionist agenda of the Episcopal Church.
