The American Anglican Council (AAC) stands in full support of The Rt.Rev. Bob Duncan. Bishop Duncan, in spite of the Episcopal Church's (TEC)attempt to depose him for "abandonment of communion," is a bishop ingood standing in the Anglican Communion as a member of the House ofBishops of the Province of the Southern Cone and as the moderator of theCommon Cause Partnership.
"The illegal and unjust deposition of the Bishop of Pittsburgh was onemore cut, one more tear, and one more declaration of independence by TECfrom the rest of the Anglican Communion," said the Rt. Rev. David C.Anderson, president and CEO of the AAC.
Bishop Duncan has earned a place on the AAC's "wall of honor" along withmore than 100 clergy who have been deposed by TEC for upholding thehistoric Christian faith.
"We continue to support and encourage Bishop Duncan's leadership of theeffort to establish a separate North American province for biblicallyorthodox Anglican Christians," Anderson added.
