Dear Panel of Reference: you bore me

The Panel of Reference is a boring and stodgy group that seems to get all of its information about The Episcopal Church from the Encyclopedia Britannica edition of 1811. Whoever put this panel together (*cough* Archbishop of Canterbury *cough*) needs to let on that they know that The Episcopal Church is just a little bit different than the Church of England. They know this right? Stop pulling our leg you cheeky monkeys!

Did you know that many of the bishops of the Church of England, sit in the Parliament by virture of their office, and are not elected?

Did you know that the Church of England enjoys legal protections and privileges, specifically denied other religious groups in the United Kingdom?

Did you know that nearly 1/4 of state funded schools in England are Church of England schools?

These three points reflect more knowledge about the Church of England than the recent Panel of Reference opinion, reflects knowledge of the Episcopal Church.

(The substance of these three points, by the way, are all unconstitutional in the United States of America.)

For reference:
(1) the letter of the President of the House of Deputies of The Episcopal Church, to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
(2) the letter of the Bishop of Bethlehem, to the Archbishop of Canterbury, inviting him to have tea with the people he's always talking about.
(3) Map of the world, showing a large ocean easily traversable by jet, to the left side of which lies the United States of America.

Dear Admiral,

The map is most illuminating. The need for the two, clearly written and imformative letters of rudimentary procedural knowledge, embarrassing.

Dear Admiral:

First a hearty "amen" to your clear posting here.

Second, it is my solemn duty to inform you that you have been "tagged" for the "seven things" meme. I hope you shall do me and your other readers the honor of responding.

AoM: On target as usual.

I could barely stay awake long enough to read the post I found the original cause of it so, yawn, boring and yawn, well..yawn producing.

Here, here! And a hearty AMEN!
