ABSTRACT
The article focuses on litigations filed in the U.S. civil courts regarding church-state conflicts. Some of the cases have been brought by women against Church authorities, claiming that any refusal to admit them to priesthood is a violation of their civil rights and an act of sex discrimination. Episcopal leaders and churchmen argue that if they do admit women to the priesthood under civil court order they will have drastically reduced the possibility of a working unity with the Roman Catholic and the Eastern Orthodox Communions.
