Really? That’s what one presbyter claimed at Synod as she argued in favor of allocating $2M to litigate against congregations seeking to leave the PCUSA for the EPC.
So, there are congregations that want to stay in the PCUSA but they’re being dragged kicking and screaming out and they must take the EPC to court to protect themselves?
Seems to me that if you’re being molested the first thing one does is to call a cop, not a lawyer.
If she’s willing to spend $2M now, I wonder if the PCUSA would like to cough up a few bucks for those little OPCs who lost their buildings to the PCUSA (even though the OPs actually still believed what the church confessed) and were forced to meet in dreadful circumstances (lodge buildings, basements, mortuaries) in the 1930s and ’40s? What about reparations to all those families who for generations had supported their local mainline Presbyterian congregation until the liberals took it from them and drove them out? What about apologies to the OPC for being forced to give up the name Presbyterian Church of America (the OPCs were the original PCA) because of a 1939 lawsuit?
