Episcopalians Against Equality

Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson weighs in

"The Episcopal Church owes its existence directly to the American Revolution; it broke away from the Church of England during the war and was reborn as a distinctly American entity between 1784 and 1789. Fully two-thirds of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were active or (like Washington) nominal Anglicans, and, having repudiated the political authority of the king of England, they could scarcely have gone on affirming his ecclesiastical authority.

The founders of the church believed, within the context of their time, that all men were created equal. Today's defectors have thought it over in the context of our own time, and decided that they're not."

Has anybody looked into the possibility that the Episcopalian Church might actually own two thirds of America (excluding Hawaii, Alaska and Guantanamo Bay)?

If this was to prove to be the case I would foresee a lot fewer defections to the Nigerian dispensation.
