Welcome to The Episcopal Oysters of Southern Ohio, a watchdog site by and for traditional Episcopalians remaining in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio (DSO).  This site is intentionally published under a pseudonym, for reasons which I will explain in other posts, for everyone’s mutual benefit. 

Here’s the deal..  I and many other Episcopalians believe that most of the hierarchy of the Episcopal Church (TEC) has abandoned the Gospel of Jesus Christ and has of late, gone even further in attempting to declare the sin of same-sex “sex” to be honorable in some contexts. The debate over human sexuality has been going on long before the touchstone event (Gene Robinson being formally consecrated as bishop in 2003). In fact, I believe that the sloppiness of TEC in failing to discipline such heretics as James Pike and Jack Spong, are the immediate cause of the fall of TEC, and that men like Robinson are but part of the judgment that is even now being called down on TEC.

The title of this site is based on a poem by Lewis Carroll, “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” which you can read here.

Please truck on over and read the whole thing. In my opinion, it perfectly describes the culture war in the West, and even more so in the Episcopal Church here in the U.S.

I’ll talk more about the similarity between the poem, and TEC, and DSO, and many other topics, as time goes on.
