Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese Votes to Leave the Church - New York Times

I'm not following this too closely, but is this the first Episcopal diocese to take this step? Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese Votes to Leave the Church - New York Times

San Joaquin in Fresno, California had previously so-voted. Fort Worth, Texas is moving towards a similar vote.

Thinking Anglicans, http://www.thinkinganglicans.org.uk/ has all the news that's fit to print about the goings on with our brethren across the Thames.

This entry http://www.thinkinganglicans.org.uk/archives/002721.html seems to indicate that for the time the diocese is still affiliated with TEC, but that this vote begins a process of seperation.

I think we're across the Tiber, actually. Lots of RCs on both sides of the Thames!

Mac, if you're Roman Catholic, you're said to be "across the Tiber," if you're Anglican, you're said to be "across the Thames."

Jason, Mac is Anglican. I wasn't entirely sure of what his previous comment meant as well. Mac, are you referring to Anglo-Catholics when you mean that there are "lots of RCs on both sides of the Thames?" Or crypto-Catholics?
