On the birthday of our nation's independence, I think about the principles for which our country was founded. With that in mind, I examined the United States Supreme Court's recent ruling about school prayer. I decided to go to the source and read the actual Supreme Court decision.

Last week, the Episcopal Church for the first time elected a woman bishop as its leader, potentially triggering a fight with the worldwide Anglican Church. This is not the first time the Episcopal Church has been in the news for such "progressive" decisions, nor is it the only one that struggles with its place in contemporary society. How should religious leaders ? not to mention the faithful ? balance progress with tradition? Change is inevitable ? except from vending machines.

An Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday that St. James Anglican Church can continue its five-year legal battle with the Episcopalian Diocese of Los Angeles over the ownership of the church building in Newport Beach. The diocese lost two motions it brought in an attempt to end the case and force the St. James congregation off of the property that fell into contention after St. James left the Episcopalian Church in 2004 because of theological differences about homosexuality.

The California Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in St. James Anglican Church’s land dispute with the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles County. The Newport Beach church, which has severed its ties to the Episcopal Church, hopes to have a July appelate court decision giving control of the property to the diocese overturned. The church filed a petition in July with the state court after the June appellate ruling in favor of the diocese. The court on Wednesday granted St. James’ petition to review the case, according to Supreme Court records available online.

In a move an attorney for St. James Anglican Church called “threatening and bullying behavior,” the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles will try to recover attorneys fees and court costs from the church and some of its members who voted to break away from the Episcopal Church in 2004, resulting in a bitter legal battle over St. James’ Via Lido campus. “They are doing this so no one ever dares leave the Episcopal hierarchy ever again,” said attorney Daniel Lula, who represents St. James.

The California Supreme Court agreed this week to hear St. James Anglican Church's appeal in a six-year property dispute with the Episcopal Church that began with the appointment of a gay cleric. Newport Beach's St. James Church holds that it has a constitutional right to defend itself with evidence in court following a March decision by the California Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Third Division, which decided in favor of the Episcopal Church. The church on 32nd Street broke away from the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles in 2004 after the Episcopal Church consecrated a gay bishop.
