Why am I angry? Because in Beverly Hills, more than anywhere on Earth, we need MORE “Drugs, Art, Sex, & Religion” so that we can live a life of “Religion without Illusions”


I have checked and noticed that the webmaster or someone from All Saints, Beverly Hills, has seen fit to delete my posts regarding the resignation of Reverend Barry Taylor from “general view” on its Facebook Page—but the importance of the topic is such that I wish to repost those comments here—in the hopes that they will somehow, someway reach the former Senior Associate Rector at all Saints and that he will make contact with me..  The Church’s suppression of information is deeply disturbing to me!

Dear Barry Taylor: 

You are the bright shining star, not just of All Saints but of the entire Episcopal Church, the entire Anglican Communion….

Dear Barry Taylor: (regarding his post on the All Saints Facebook Page regarding the end of summer)

Why does this just not look like the final message of a wrongdoer about to resign? Something very odd is going on….I do wish you’d call me—local phone 310-278-9683/Fax 310-278-9684. If, by any chance, there are legal ramifications to whatever is going on—well, I can help with that too maybe…

  1. Barry is in London visiting with his sick mom, and regrouping, He will be back in a week or two and will be holding new services at another location TBD.

  2. Charles Edward Lincoln III

    Well, I heard that at the All Saints “Town Hall” Meeting. All Saints is a very important Church and Congregation—it was good to have someone like Barry, on the intellectual cutting-edge, at such a central location. I was confirmed by Bishop Robert Claflin Rusack at All Saints in April 1974, and I really thought it was a brilliantly effective place for Barry to be. How can the Church grow or enter the new millennium if it shoots down its brightest stars?
