“Dr. William L. Sachs, director of research at the Episcopal Church Foundation in New York.”>titusonenine: “For the church’s leaders, the worst possible tack would be to disregard the concerns of the majority of the people in the pew. If the national leadership assumes that the controversy over a [noncelibate] gay bishop and the blessing of same-sex unions somehow has blown over, and if it does not engage grassroots concerns, the church’s infrastructure will erode severely.
