Another Government Employee: PunGent: Another Government Employee: allylloyd: I'm curious--how many of you responding here are members of the TEC (or Anglican Communion) past or present?

The TEC is a very simple church. We follow three simple things: 1) Scripture. The Holy Bible. We have assigned daily readings from the OT, NT, Psalms and Gospels. Basically you can read the entire Bible in three years if you follow them. 2) Tradition. Baptism and Holy Eucharist. We don't talk about "salvation". Once you've been baptized, you've got all the salvation you need. The Holy Eucharist. It's a meal that'll have you coming back for more... 3) Reason. It's the reason part that starts all these things...

I am.

And these kind of arguments come up every generation or so.  In the 1950's and 1960's it was segregation.  In the 1970's it was the ordination of women and the modernization of the prayer book.  The 1990's brought gay clergy and now we have gay marriage.

I wonder what the next argument will be?

AI, and/or human cloning, would be my guesses.

I'm going to guess end of life issues.  Especially as medical costs become more unsustainable.


Good call....should've thought of that myself.

OMG, you left out the 1986 prayer book!  So much anger.

Probably the update to the Prayer book in 2028.


So I pushed him off the bridge...

They'll revert back to the 1928 edition (which DOES have a much better flow)

FTFA:  "If you are in a marriage that is failing, that is just not working, sometimes divorce is necessary,"

You have to be a special kind of tone deaf douche bag to make that kind of statement about a schism over your "defense of the sanctity of marriage".
