Using the words “Episcopal”, “leaders” and “influence” in a the same sentence of a political story is basically oxymoronic.

Hmmm…on might reflect on the 37th Article of Religion that specifically says, “The Laws of the Realm may punish Christian men with death, for heinous and grievous offenses.”

On second thought, nah, that would require doctrine to begin with.

The Articles are “Historical Documents” not doctrine.

Yes, I realize everyone ignores them. The Episcopal Church has no actual coherent doctrine.

I see that BrianfromT19 has fully received the benefits that Urban T. Holmes projected for the 1979 “revision” of the Book of Common Prayer 1928.  Urban is undoubtedly delighted that the purposes he outlined in “Education for Liturgy: An Unfinished Symphony in Four Movements” (WORSHIP POINTS THE WAY: A Celebration of the Life and Work of Massey Hamilton Shepherd, Jr., edited by Malcolm C. Burson, The Seabury Press/New York, 1981, pp116-141) have been so wittily fulfilled.

Of course, it remains highly ironic that the “leaders” are so successfully killing the (Protestant) Episcopal church in the USA and opposing the death penalty simply on the face of the claim.  They highly believe in the courts - based on their actions.

They believe in the courts’ decisions only as long as they benefit THEM.  Otherwise…........
