Am an Anglican by faith, but not a contemporary Episcopalian. Am giving up on the US Episcopal church, and am going to convert to the Roman Catholic church.

Not that big a leap, really.

Transubstantiation vs. Consubstantiation. Not a small issue.

Well, hurry up and get over here with the rest of us Converts!

My Parish converted en masse to the Roman Catholic Church-even my Anglican Priest who's know an RC Priest. It's great.

"Not that big a leap, really."

Been there - done that. - LOL!
... and, believe it or not, into the Eastern Rite Churches in full Communion with Rome it's more like one measured responsible step than a leap.

BTW, towards the bottom of my FR homepage I've got 2 related links which you may find of interest.

Seriously considering the same thing.

I am also an Episcopalian (half of my family is Roman Catholic). I have not been to church in years when the church turned left and left me behind. I too gave much consideration going Catholic again (I was baptized as an RC); but I tried, and just can’t do it. I live in Latin America, and maybe their views are different from U.S.; but I just couldn’t warm up to the snootiness and distance when I tried to talk with them a couple of times.

Watching the “marriage” of the Prince of Wales in St George’s chapel reminded me why I want to continue as an Episcopalian some day. The service was so uplifting.

You aren't the only one! In late July 2003, then Cardinal Ratzinger publicly issued a letter/statement that was very clear on the traditional Catholic Christian teaching on what marriage is and is not. A week later, the episcopagan general circus met in Minneapolis where a majority of their bishops-in-name-only voted "okey-dokey" for V.G. Robinson. That was my exit out the ECUSA and across the Tiber. Whatever the problems that might exist in the Catholic Church, there was still a final office and authority to state clearly what traditional Christian teaching has been and will always be. Ratzinger's letter of late July 2003 was a very contrasting witness to the episcopagan "vote" in early August 2003. I would have eventually crossed the Tiber, it was for me more a matter of when than if. My Catholic friends can thank the episcopagan bishops-in-name-only for speeding up my crossing.

If you believe a gang raped woman should have to carry the baby from that rape and deliver it, then you are in accordance with Catholic teaching.

If you have a different opinion such as she should be allowed to abort within 6 weeks of the rape, you will be a heretic and shouldn't bother making the conversion. - Tom
