CANA supports the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh in their vote to separate from The Episcopal Church

“We support the leaders and members of the Diocese of Pittsburgh in their journey to abide by the clear teaching of Scripture and to remain steadfast in their faith. It is sad that the Diocese was forced to come to this vote, but they could not in good conscience follow the direction embraced by the current leadership of The Episcopal Church.

“This vote represents a large and growing reality within The Episcopal Church that its leaders have tried to ignore. Their only solution is to seek to remove orthodox Anglican leaders from their ranks and to sue orthodox Anglican congregations. We will continue to pray that TEC leadership would reverse their prodigal course and align with the rest of the Anglican Communion.”

The Rt. Rev'd Martyn Minns
Bishop, Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA)

Andrew Carey in a statement of support, has called on the CoE evangelicals to speak out against this 'deposition' as well.
