South Carolina leaves Episcopal Church

The Diocese of South Carolina voted yesterday overwhelmingly to leave The Episcopal Church (TEC) after several months of crisis and disciplinary action by the denomination against the staunchly orthodox and traditionalist diocese (you can find lots of info on that here).  South Carolina becomes the 5th diocese to leave since Katherine Jefferts Schori became presiding bishop, and my guess is it, like the others, will affiliate with the Anglican Church of North America.  Those conservatives and traditionalists who remain in TEC find their numbers further dwindling.  This vote comes only days after the Rt. Rev. Justin Welby was announced as the new Archbishop of Canterbury, and one wonders if he will comment on this development.
