Ask me anything: Episcopalian Edition


#1

Ask me anything about being a semi-religious American Episcopalian.


#2

Semi-religious? Is this an agnostic thing going on or?


#3

How do Episcopalians justify abortion, contraception, sex before marriage, same sex relations, gender transitioning, interpreting the Bible, etc…?


#4

We all have doubt at points, but I stay faithful throughout.


#5

How much different is it from R. Catholicism?


#6

What is your view on the Episcopalian Liturgy, as well as Holy Communion?


#7

Before I became Catholic, I was a semi-religious American Lutheran. Aren’t they about the same? In which ways do they differ? (Except the Episcopalians have their “primates,” which makes me think of gorillas, led by a venerable silver-backed gorilla.) I know the Episcopal church is allowed to select new bishops from among their own clergy and from Lutheran clergy, so they must recognize the vast similarity of the churches.


#8

The ELCA is in communion with the Episcopal Church. LCMS and WELS are not.


#9

Yes, that’s what my church was.


#10

Why “St. John Divine” for many Episcopalian churches?


#11

Catholics have that title as well.


#12

Oh. I never heard that.


#13

Will the splits in the Episcopalian church between moderates and conservatives eventually lead to it’s demise?


#14

Wow, going for the knockout punch early.


#15

Need the popcorn-eating emoji.


#16

Due to America being a baby in the overall scheme of Catholic hierarchy, we’ve never gotten one.
Other, older, more historically Catholic countries (Poland, Austria, Portugal) have them.


#17

I got ya, GK


#18

Woah. Energetic.


#19

#20

Apprehensive.

Looking for an expectant spectator sort.
