  •  You'd Suspect Correctly (5+ / 0-)

    I further suspect that I'm in the same boat as 99.99999999% of all other non-Episcopalians who also haven't seen them.

    •  Because what we do never makes the news (13+ / 0-)

      unless we ordain a gay Bishop. And even then there is no interest in what we are up to, because it's not "sexy". But we do have official positions on everything from human sexuality (it's human, and it's sexuality, and as long as its between responsible adults, it's a beautiful gift from God) to social justice. There are conservative Episcopalians, but for the most part, our official church stuff is pretty damned liberal and has been for decades. We were also highly involved in the civil rights movements of the 50's and 60's (and even have a couple of saints, including Jonathan Myrick Daniels, a seminarian who was killed when he took a bullet aimed at a 14 year old black girl in Alabama during the Freedom Rides).

      We tend to put our money where our mouth is, but we keep our mouths shut: we're bad at publicity because we're not a "go out and look for converts" kind of church. Perhaps because over the last thirty years, we've gotten most of our converts from the Roman Church!

      •  I am also Episcopalian and I quite agree (1+ / 0-)

        you hit the nail on the head.

        I do wish my local congregation  had more liberal members but at least they are more moderate Republicans, for the most part.
