George Will comments on the Episcopal Church (but do read the essay!):
“The Episcopal Church once was America’s upper crust at prayer. Today it is ‘progressive’ politics cloaked — very thinly — in piety. Episcopalians’ discontents tell a cautionary tale for political as well as religious associations. As the church’s doctrines have become more elastic, the church has contracted. It celebrates an ‘inclusiveness’ that includes fewer and fewer members.”
– George Will, “A Faith’s Dwindling Following,” The Washington Post, October 19, 2008.
What do we say to that?
