The quote, "If people can get blessed, then dogs can get blessed" seems to well describe the depths of Episcopal theology. One wonders what the scriptural basis for this is.

One surmised with 1.5 million members having left TEC, they have to get their attendance up in some way or another.

BTW, there is a difference between people and dogs. People are capable of receiving the blessing of God through faith. Dogs aren't.

Wonder why we should be concerned with them? They were given to us a a blessing.

Genesis 1

24 And God said,“Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.

25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said,“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them,“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

29 Then God said,“I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

I wonder what this guy would say about blessing animals on Sunday in a church?

Matthew 12: 10-11

Matthew 12:10-12

10 and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to bring charges against Jesus, they asked him,“Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”

11 He said to them,“If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out?

12 How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”
