from virtueonline:

"But Budde, who was installed last month as the ninth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, faces a tough road. After a decade of schism within the church and broad disillusionment with mainline Protestantism in general, membership in the Episcopal Church in America - the denomination of FDR and George Herbert Walker Bush, the throne of high WASP-dom - has fallen on hard times.

"Recent polls put Episcopalians in America at fewer than 2 million, which means that there are numerically more Jews, more Muslims and more Mormons in this country than there are Episcopalians ...

"'We got so fascinated with ourselves that the world just sped by us,' Budde said.'We're like a boutique. We're the most inclusive church in the world that's the tiniest church in Christendom ...'"

TEC is like an "inclusive" boutique?
