Rick Warren Offers to Save Homo-Hating St. James Anglican Church, But Where's Howard F. Ahmanson, Jr?
But piling on Warren isn't the purpose of post. One of the main reasons for the schism is Howard F. Ahmanson, Jr., supreme funder of many conservative Christian causes--his most recent Uncle Moneybags move was giving $900,000 to the Yes on Proposition 8 campaign. Read this excellent report on Ahmanson's influence in creating the Episcopal Church schism over the ordination of the openly gay Gene Robinson as a bishop back in New Hampshire. At last report, Ahmanson was still a member of St. James Anglican.
Which begs the question, and we ask it directly to Howard, whom we know reads Navel Gazing: given your fabulous wealth, why don't you just buy a building for St. James? And, if you no longer belong to St. James, don't you think the least you can do to those poor souls is buy them a place as penance for the secular vengeance you inadvertently wrought? Inquiring minds want to know!
