Cal Thomas & DO25

Mr. Thomas does not understand or willingly misrepresents the situation in the Episcopal Church in a recent op-ed piece.

Background: Thirteen resolutions were proposed to deal with the 2006 statement that called for a "moratorium" on ordaining gay bishops—a misnomer for the appeal for restraint. Six resolutions called for repealing the statement; another six called for strengthening it.

The 13th resolution included a description of where we are as a church right now. This was the resolution that became DO25. Bishop Bruce Caldwell of Wyoming is reported as having said DO25 was "largely descriptive of where we are today". Affirming my "read" of the resolution (see above).

Mr. Thomas should be more careful in his "reporting" and not base his opinion pieces on misinformation.
