I think the administration just broke down. Something calling itself
the Church of Antioch (in fact a U.S. organization)
ran FICOB as an umbrella organization for
unaffiliated bishops. I don't think that most of them were in
*doctrinal* schism particularly, just for one reason or another
autocephalous. Some are Utrecht Jansenists, some are Old
(i.e. anti-infallibilist) Catholics, some are Tridentines;
some are liberal, some ultra-conservative.
A motley crew. More at http://www7.concentric.net/~Cosmas/ficob.htm .
