"My understanding of Jesus' ministry is that he told us not to go to war, and that he is at heart a peacemaker," Jefferts Schori said. "We understand our mission as a church to be reconciliation. There may be times when it's appropriate to go to war. I'm not convinced of that, but we live in a world that is not perfect."

It would be perfect indeed, if CJS would just let the dissenting parishes/dioceses go instead of declaring legal warfare on them. And if she truly loves Jesus, she should follow His admonition in Mark 6:13 to simply shake off the dust from under her feet and depart peacefully. But that scripture applies to believers only.

Whoops, Katharine Jefferts Schori’s initials are KJS, not CJS.
