Texas Breakaway Churches Can Keep Their Property

The Texas Supreme Court has ruled that 52 breakaway Texas Episcopal churches can maintain ownership of their property.

The Fort Worth Episcopal diocese had sued for ownership when the congregations split from the national Episcopal Church.

In a 5-4 vote, the state justices overturned an earlier ruling that had given the Episcopal Church the properties.

That is the only way and Episcopalian or a United Methodist Church local congregation could keep the physical property of their church. A court would have to reward it to them.

United Methodist Churches signed a contract that their churches belong to the denomination, I wonder if the Episcopalian Church in Texas did the same?

Sometimes the state conference gives money to support building a church and also they do depend on some means for a retirement fund for their retired ministers.

So, you can --slightly-- see the denomination's point of view, no matter if you think these people are worth retirement payments or not.
