- 2000 *LINK* AP. "Renegade Episcopal parish fights church over property " in Deseret News (21 Oct 2000) PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) ?All Saints Church, home of a renegade bishop whose alternative Anglican group says the Episcopal Church has become too liberal, is fighting the Episcopal diocese over its property... the congregation's leader, Charles H. Murphy III, is one of two bishops heading the "Anglican Mission in America, " which is rallying dissenting Episcopalians. Murphy received an ordination from the Anglican archbishop in Rwanda to circumvent American church officials; his status is not recognized by the Episcopal Church... The Anglican Mission in America has at least 20 congregations in 13 states. Joining in recent weeks were Alabama's oldest Episcopal congregation, two parishes in the Florida panhandle and four groups in Colorado. Those additions result from July's Episcopal Church convention, which urged support for unwed couples living in committed relationships and implicitly included same-sex couples, even though the denomination formally opposes homosexual activity.
