In Virginia, the State Attorney General has a filed a brief in favour of the constitutionality of Virginia's Division Statute. This helps the break away parishes and hurts, somewhat, the Diocese of Virginia and 815.
Not all that terribly far away, the U S Solicitor General has filed a brief in favour of the Washington DC ordinance banning handguns, saying that the trial court used the wrong standard in evaluating the constitutionality of the same.
How are they related? Well this post finally allows me to use 'guns' and 'episcopal church' tags for the same post.
