Loyalists in Network dioceses seek assistance

The Living Church reports, "Loyalist Episcopalians in dioceses affiliated with the Anglican Communion Network feel isolated and lack access to important information to help them plan for their future, said Bonnie Anderson, president of the House of Deputies, during brief introductory remarks to Executive Council, Oct. 26 in Dearborn, Michigan. .... Many of the questions relate to how these persons will remain connected if their dioceses realize plans to disaffiliate from The Episcopal Church. ... No decisions were made following Mrs. Anderson's address and it was uncertain how much time the council would spend on these issues."

Is it true that the TEC could remove Bp Iker from the Fort Worth Diocese if he makes a move to associate with with another church? That would be an avenue to retain the Diocese within TEC, wouldn't it? Then a new Bishop loyal to TEC could be found.
