Don't make Moyo suffer

But readers disagree on where the shoe fits

The point in David Miller's editorial (June) is well-taken: Why should differences, be they theological or ecclesiological, be allowed to subvert the main mission of the church? The problem is, the shoe is on the wrong foot. Rather, the question is: Why does the ELCA leadership risk schism and loss of support for the sake of a doctrine — the historic episcopate — that we don't believe? It seems our leadership puts joining with the Episcopal Church above the very needs described in "Tell it to Moyo."
