Breakaway Episcopalians win Texas church property fight

For the second time in as many months, a state court has sided with a group of breakaway Episcopalians, ruling that they can keep their property after leaving the national church in 2008 over sharp differences on homosexuality and the authority of Scripture.

Judge John P. Chupp of the 141st District Court in Tarrant County, Texas, ruled Monday that more than 60 parishes in greater Fort Worth can retain their property and remain independent of the Episcopal Church.
