But that is the upside down through the looking glass world that Jack Iker has created for himself.
In addition, renegades point to this as how the Episcopal Church should deal with dissidents who take TEC property. Don't buy it for a second. Deep in his delusional heart Jack Iker knows he could never keep these properties. He knows he was going to lose them in any court battle. So he offers to give them up as a sign of how generous he is. It is a sham. They weren't his to give back if he doesn't know that we have bigger problems that we thought.
