Breaking: Sven vanBaar, Former Candidate for Bishop Diocesan of Southern VA, Displays Questionable Ethics, Judgment
Some time ago, the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia elected the Rev. Susan B. Haynes as bishop diocesan. Because her consecration still must be approved by a majority of bishops in the House of Bishops, I wanted to make sure that diocesan officials understand the profound concerns I have about Sven’s qualifications. With that in mind, here is the email I sent to the search committee, together with the attachments.

Potential logical construct construct for Catholic Churches, based on the model of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia under Bishop Susan Goff:
1. Sexual abuse is illegal.
2. Many priests have not actually been convicted of sexual abuse.
3. Therefore, those priests must be innocent of sexual abuse.
4. Thus, the church will not investigate allegations of sexual abuse by clergy.
Yes, people are outraged at issues in the Catholic church, and rightly so. But the Catholic church takes abuse more seriously than does the Episcopal Church, which tells you just how morally bankrupt the Episcopal church is.
Susan Goff, Melissa Hollerith, Sven vanBaar — fake Christians. Ethically clueless.
