September 18, 2008. The House of Bishops, meeting today in
Salt Lake City, Utah, voted to consent to the deposition of
Pittsburgh’s bishop, the Rt. Rev. Robert W. Duncan, for abandoning
the communion of The Episcopal Church. The deposition of the bishop
makes the Standing Committee the ecclesiastical authority for the
diocese. Bishop Duncan now claims to be a bishop of the Southern
Cone, a South American Province of the Anglican Communion.
