Newport Beach schismatics headed to State Supreme Court

The schismatics at St. James' , Newport Beach, have been granted a hearing by the California Supreme Court.

As you recall, in March, the California Court of Appeal ruled 2 to 1 that the Episcopal Diocese owns St. James. The schismatics claimed that the decision was made before St. James could go through the discovery process and present evidence to the court. They appealed to the State Supreme Court and, I'm surprised to say, the court granted the hearing.

Remember, folks, they keep saying "It's not about the property." Apparently they prevaricate because it is all about the property.

The CASC agreeing to hear this case is most interesting in light of their refusal to hear the La Cresenta case last March. Could this hearing have anything to do with the fact that ueber-rich < Ahmanson, the chequebook of the schismatics worships at St. James', Newport Beach? I'm just wondering.

NOTE: This post was sent out at about 3:30 a.m. but I've changed the post time to keep it at the top of the list for today because it's more newsworthy than the Druid in Lambeth Palace.

Also, make sure to read Fr. Jake today. He presents a very thought provoking explanation to the current power play by Mr. Williams, Druid practitioner.
