California Episcopal Bishop in Trouble for Trying to Sell Church to Condo Developer for $15M

From Christian Post-

A California bishop of The Episcopal Church is facing a disciplinary hearing for allegations that he violated church law when trying to sell off a diocesan property to a condominium developer for $15 million.

The Right Reverend J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, was accused of multiple canon law violations, with a three-day disciplinary hearing beginning on Tuesday.

"Bruno is accused of violating Title IV Canon IV.4.1(g) failing to exercise his ministry in accordance with applicable church canons (specifically Title II Canon II.6.3 requiring prior standing committee consent to any plan for a church or chapel to be 'removed, taken down, or otherwise disposed of for worldly or common use')," reported Episcopal News Service.
