Breakaway Texas Diocese Wins Court Battle Over Church Property Claimed by Episcopal Church

From Christian Post-

A judge has ruled that a diocese in Texas which broke away from The Episcopal Church over theological differences is the rightful owner of its church property.

Judge John Chupp of Tarrant County ruled Wednesday that All Saints Episcopal Church belongs to the breakaway Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth rather than the national denomination.

Bishop Jack Leo Iker, head of the breakaway diocese, said in a statement that he and his diocese "thank God for this wonderful ruling."

"It means that in due course this great, historic parish will be restored to the biblical faith, orthodox teaching, and catholic religion of her founding members," said Bishop Iker.
