|815 Second Ave., NYC|
My favorite laugh line from the debate came from the Rev. Frank Hubbard, a deputy from New Jersey: "815 is the relic of our delusions of being an established church from an imperial era. Constantine has left the building. Unfortunately, Constantine has left us the building."
The passage of the resolution prompted an outbreak on Facebook last night of nominations for where the Episcopal Church should re-locate its world headquarters: Chicago, Denver, Oklahoma City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Las Vegas got votes. Curiously, no one mentioned Indianapolis. Maybe that is because it was more than 100 degrees there yesterday. I nominated Honolulu.
Here is the story from Episcopal New Service:
