Writing for the Church of England Newspaper, George Conger has pointed us to the fact that the Church of North India, The Anglican Church of India and the Church of India are all embroiled in lawsuits that now will go as a lump to the High Court of Delhi. The article, "Court to rule on Indian religious Row." has the details, including this: "Disputes over the control of church properties have reached fever pitch at times. On July 13 the Times of India reported that partisans of the ACI sought to evict the headmaster and administration of the CNI’s Christ Church College in Cawnpore (Kanpur). Police intervened in the dispute when the ACI appointed headmaster broke the locks on the headmaster’s office, and evicted his rival, claiming the historic Church of England school lawfully belonged to the ACI, not the CNI."
Ah, worldwide Anglicanism at its best. Churches in the Global South, some part of the Anglican Communion others not are chewing over the bones of colonial carcasses. The winners get to hold the property, and strangely enough, get to be the declared winner of the big prize - being officially recognized by the State of India as the "rightful successor to the Church of England in India.
How come this bit of suing never gets mentioned when the hand wringers are demanding a new moratorium on lawsuits?
