"You shall not hold yourself out as an ordained person of this Church in good standing"

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori today issued a formal canonical Restriction on Ordained Ministry directed to the Rt. Rev. Heather Cook, Bishop Suffragan of Maryland.
This Restriction was issued as part of the Episcopal Church's Title IV disciplinary process. The Restriction provides:
Pursuant to Canons IV.7(3), (4) and IV.17(2) of this church, I hereby place the following restrictions on your ordained ministry:
|Presiding Bishop Schori knew she was consecrating|
an out of control drunk.
The 2010 DUI blood sample suggested
12+ alcoholic drinks had been downed.
Schori to Cook, "You are not even WELS."
In her notice, the Presiding Bishop indicates, "This restriction is being placed upon your ordained ministry because information has been received by the Intake Officer that indicates that you may have committed one or more offenses under Canon IV.4 as a result of your alleged criminal conduct in connection with an automobile accident on December 27, 2014 and misrepresentations you allegedly made to persons in the Diocese of Easton and in connection to your candidacy for the episcopate in the Diocese of Maryland regarding your experience with alcohol.
The Restriction takes effect immediately.
GJ - The Episcopal leaders are much stricter than WELS. The Wisconsin sect allowed Stolzenburg to play the role of a pastor, did nothing to stop it, constantly encouraged it, and endorsed him (via Paul Kuske and Robert Schumann) for the job at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio. Paul Kuske, who endorsed Stolzenburg, denied at a meeting that he or anyone else in WELS had anything to do with Floyd's hiring.
Floyd left quite a stench in WELS, so the "confessional" ELS adopted him, via Thoughts of Faith, John Shep and His Eminence Jay Webber.
