Quotes of note:

"Confronted with these facts, I see no course by which I can escape the judgment of being 'partaker of other men's sins', other than to suspend fellowship relations with the Synod that has been my life-time association. It would be unwarranted on my part to repeat, as a member of Synod, the admonition and exhortation which the Synod has so roundly condemned."
