You're Fired, Finally

Do you remember bishop Stacy Sauls, the Episcopal Church's Chief Operating Officer? Sure you do. Sauls was placed on administrative leave along with Sam McDonald, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Director of Mission, and Alex Baumgarten, Director of Public Engagement and Mission Communications.

Why? No one knew, "possible misconduct," pending an investigation. 


Baumgarten and McDonald were fired this week for violating "workplace policies." Stacy was axed too, even though the investigation found him innocent of misconduct.

Popular Anglican news service, VirtueOnline, asked the Episcopal Church's Public Affairs Officer whether the misconduct was sexually related. Neva Ray Fox neither confirmed nor denied the question.

What can I say? Better call Saul.

The truth will come out eventually. Hiding it usually just makes things worse.

It doesn't sound as though peace is flowing like a river at 815...

We know that they wouldn't be fired for worshiping at the feet of Mephistopheles. It has to be something else. Perhaps they had a fit of conscience that nobody knows about? That would be sufficient cause to remove them with extreme prejudice.

I was wondering the very same thing, LL. But maybe Neva's silence in the face of VOL's question speaks volumes.
