NO I BOSTON (AP)-An Episcopal Bishop from Texas said he helped form a new synod in the church because he opposed changes such as the ordination of women and gay people. "We believe c bishops and standing t have not been overly scrupulous ... in screening out those whom we think are inappropriate for holy orders,'' said Bishop Clarence (' 1'ope of Fort Worth Pope came to Boston as president of the Episcopal Synod of America to lead a meeting of its council and to officiate at a service at All Saints Church in the city's Dorchester section.

Pope said his group intends to he a religious order within the Fpiscnpal Church, ready to pick up the pieces if the church delays The group was formed with five other bishops last June. The group said they are dissatisfied with what they see as a trend of downplaying the Bible and church tradition to allow change. The synod council adopted a resolution opposing the action of Bishop John S. Spong of Newark who last month ordained a priest who admitted being homosexual. The council contended the action "violates the consciences of many Christian people, both homosexual and heterosexual, who struggle to live lives in accordance with the Gospel and the Christian moral traditions and treats their sacrifices with contempt." The new synod has sought to en- list individual parishes and church members. Pope said most Episcopalians accept church tradition, but bishops in some Northeastern dioceses He added, "If these innovations are adopted, I think what we will see is a mutation of Christianity into something that has little resemblance to historic Christianity" j CREDIT NECESSARY. * Wide Area Coverage.
