New Allegations Leveled Against Bishop Mark Lawrence

Posted: October 6, 2011 by limabean03 in Anglican Communion, Thought and Practice in the Diocese of South Carolina

I took the first set of allegations with a grain of salt, however the fact that these allegations are accompanied by photo evidence, I’m afraid they are nothing short of damning.

We had to find out the truth eventually...Darth Mark!!!

It saddens me to report to you that new allegations have surfaced against Bishop Mark Lawrence, Diocesan Bishop for South Carolina.  It appears he is not who we thought he was.  I have excerpted full text from the official complaint, which reads: “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it is a period of institutional conflict.  During the conflict spies managed to steal secret plans to Darth Mark’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH MITRE, an armored space station and Bishop’s accessory with enough power to destroy an entire parish.”

“Bishop Lawrence,” aka “Darth Mark,” apparently contributed to the construction of this deadly weapon.  One may think that because the event took place “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away,” that his actions could not be held against him.  But the new Title IV disciplinary canons place no restrictions on time or space, thus Darth Mark will have to answer for his actions.

In the past two days, much has been made about the ordination of the Bishop’s son to the priesthood.  Now that Darth Mark has been unmasked, it appears Chad is not the only son that Darth Mark needs be concerned with.  As the video below plainly makes clear:

Attention!!!  If it was not plainly obvious, the above was a bit of satire.  I’m simply using humor to get you interested in the Title IV revisions, under which Bishop Lawrence is being investigated and unjustly accused.  The revisions expand potential offenses and greatly reduce procedural safeguards.   Click here to read the ACI’s paper on Title IV  to better understand the circumstances under which Bishop Lawrence is currently being investigated.   As to the substance of the accusations themselves, they are every bit as ridiculous as the story above.

    The news in our diocese is indeed sad! (So is the news in our country) But our God is in charge! – of EVERYTHING! Be assured of the prayers of your congregation – we love our Bishop, our Pastors, and most of all our God! Prayer is our first call – especially now. I’ve spent hours reading your blogs (God has, indeed, given us a Pastor who thinks, writes, and preaches so well), and will out-do those hours now in prayer. Mercifully, He has given me “down-time” at a most crucial time! Thank you for the time you’ve spent writing to us on Word Press.
    I appreciate where God has allowed me to be at this time in my life. I am blessed!
    In His Love,
    Susan

    The most damning thing I can say against Lawrence’s accusers is this: the liberals are not being truly liberal: http://liturgical.wordpress.com/2011/10/13/officials-of-the-episcopal-church-take-new-action-to-punish-free-speech/
