    LOL! I don't have a church. For that very reason.

    My father used to say that the greatest strength of the Episcopal Church was also its greatest weakness: Its attempts to be all things to all people. So you have those who are "low-church" and who regard themselves as Protestants and call their rectors a "minister" and others who are "High-Church" and regard themselves as "Anglo-Catholic" and call their rectors "Father," and etc.

    I have to question their religious faith at this point and the fact that they have abandoned God word to make men happy.
    there will be a split in the church and people will leave and the church will drop in attendance.

    Paul even wrote against this as well.

    I should have let the comment slide. One of the great things about the U.S. is we all get to practice our religion according to our own beliefs and consciences. I really have no interest in debating whose interpretation of the 100s of religions and 1,000s of sects is the correct one. The Episcopalians are one of those thousands. Good for them in my view. Others who have different views have many others to choose from.

    I am no longer religious, but was Episcopalian. The Episcopal Church has always been socially liberal. As a side note, one could argue that it is our unofficial state church as the Episcopal Church (a member of the Anglican Communion) was founded by some of our founding fathers, the National Cathedral is Episcopal, and we have had more Episcopalian presidents and members of congress in our nation's history than any other denomination.

    That all said, if you don't like the fact that the Episcopalians are extending the sacrament of marriage to same sex couples, then don't go to an Episcopal Church.
