The homosexuals covet anything that the heterosexuals have, which is understandable because they want to think that they are normal also.

We gays have our own worldwide network of churches; the 12th largest protestant denomination

We don't need anything the Church of England has to offer
.
Nothing!

Internet trolls have been declared psychopathic , self-obsessed , narcissistic , sadistic and Machiavellian by all authorities on mental illnesses ( " Slate Magazine " - February 14, 2014 ) ; so anything that comes out of their highly disturbed minds is to be disregarded .

That's right, dear, and what could be more normal than a "man" who claims to be straight wasting every day at gay websites? Next thing you know you'll move to Las Vegas and use a drag queen's name.

Church of where? the Church of eshit or something along those lines.

Who gives a crap...they're a lot like the Church of vatican -"I am the king- bow now to me...."
Fantastically....they.forget their histories of killing the innocent....mind soul and bodies////
it is beyond me to really care...but I do like the idea of buying their properties as they get sued for raping children and proclaiming godly preference- the tide will turn and they will drown..

.god save the queens..

One is enough, isn't it? Thank goodness there is at least one who practices what others should be preaching.

Roger that, Quest!

The Anglican Church has caught its own tail in the very gears that it turns. As a result of their failure, they grind themselves into a painful bind.

On the one hand, they make a puzzle of moves in order to approve the acceptance of women into the Episcopate. But, they dare not be straightforward about it, because doing so makes short work out of disposing of a tradition of sexual discrimination.

Presiding Bp. Katherine Jefferts-Schori makes the stiff upper lip quake with fear.

Oh there's more than just one, several non-denominational churches perform same sex couple weddings and several major Indian Tribes. Christianity isn't the only flavor in this country.

What part of "mainline" didn't you understand?
And the "snake handlers" are not a mainline Christian denomination.
