Parishes are leaving the Episcopal Church

Here's the intro to the article from the USA Today:

Episcopal Church torn by gay issue as more parishes leave
More than a dozen congregations have defected from the U.S. Episcopal Church since the first of the year in a growing rebellion triggered by the ordination of an openly gay bishop in 2003.

Overall, more than three dozen congregations from the largely white, affluent Protestant denomination have left the national church and aligned with African and South American branches of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
