Staying or Going?

One of the interesting issues I've discussed a bit online is the whole issue of how to respond to being in a church when I strongly disagree with other members of it. Of course, Christians holding to "traditional" views of (for example) sexual morality have a much more difficult time of it in ECUSA - the Anglican Church in the US.

Here's an interesting interview with a minister in ECUSA, who is pretty sure that the right thing to do is stay. What I find particularly interesting is his broader theological view than the one or two texts usually trotted out - he thinks in terms of divorce, in terms of what it meant for the Old Testament prophets to be part of an apostate people, etc. Interesting stuff (and thanks to SAA for drawing this to my attention).
