It doesn't seem that cool of a club if anyone could be part of it.'"

"anyone" can't be a part of the "trendier than thou" Episcopal Church, and the schism Robinson created in TEC became a chasm thanks to PB Schori, but I bet Gene didn't give the devil her due.

You still think like a roman, thinking that any PB is our Pope rather than elected by the General convention, voted on by reps from every diocese, parish and province.

I'm sorry you have to be told what to do by the politics of the Curia.

We learned what NOT to do from you romans.....

A meeting of the liberals' Mutual Admiration Society -- gotta love it. It's like "Home on the Range," "where never is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day." It's like fine perfume -- a whiff is just enough but nauseating when it saturates the air(waves).

Yet "we" elected a former Roman to be the dictator of your denomination!

You had nothing to do with it. You and your buddy Saul don't like women, remember.

While Saul tells them to shut up Jesus and the Spirit say SPEAK!

How about we hold people accountable for their religious choices when they reach the age of reason?

Ooops forgot, you're roman - no reason allowed.....

First of all, I didn't write that Henry VIII founded Anglicanism. But, since you seem intent on rewriting the history of Anglicanism, let it be stated that, Yes, King Henry VIII - DID in fact - found Anglicanism.

Oh Yes. Oh Yes. Oh Yes!

When his daughter by Ann Boleyn, "Good Queen Bess," was coronated in 1559, one of her first moves was to formally establish the English Protestant Church, following in her father's footsteps.

But, she didn't found it. She formalized it. Her father made the initial Declaration, founding and establishing the English Church under Christ, without the intercessory agency of the papacy, because the pope refused to grant Henry an anullment or a divorce.

Besides, The Engish Church had already shown its lineage through the original Missionaries of Christ, led by Joseph of Arimathea, in the First Century, A.D., long before the Church of Rome was to send its priests and emissaries to England at the English King's request.

Take a history lesson, Joe. And put your deliberate misrepresentations and Wiki-based BS back in the box.

Rev. Ken
