"It is past time for members of Anglican Essentials to stop applying convenient history and short-term memory in their understanding of the ownership of parish assets, including property and buildings". "A vote to secede at a congregational meeting inevitably has disenfranchised those long departed parish members who might strongly disagree with the action, and have left their legacies in trust. Dioceses and their bishops are bound to protect such trusts. To argue otherwise is a clear transgression of the canons that dissenting clergy and congregational members have foresworn. For present congregational members to claim to know the mind of their forebears is a narcissistic presumption".
