Virginia Council of Churches gives award to Episcopal Bishop Peter James Lee

But it's no accident that this happens to pop up in the press just as the Virginia Supreme Court is taking up the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia's appeal of the final judgment awarded by the Fairfax County Circuit Court to the congregations that voted to separate from the Episcopal Church, no accident at all. Just a nice thing to do for a bishop who has served many years in what was formerly the Established Church of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

And in case the accident is overlooked, look who received an award next to Bishop Lee.

Isn't the Virginia Council of Churches funded in significant part by the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia? This is like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation giving an award to . . . Mrs. Gates.

"Everyone knows the name and the integrity of Bishop Lee in Virginia,"

There goes that word, "integrity" popping up again.

Yep, there's a conspiracy everywhere you look.

Did +Lee shoot JFK too?

It does show they are thinking. Unless of course, it's just an accident. Predestined? Or Free Will? Or perhaps just a simple twist of fate. ;-)

Conspiracy theories abound, almost so much that I would find them funny if they weren't so sad.

On that, we agree, Daniel.
