No doubt more to come. The episcopal church is literally facing a challenge to survive as a separate entity. Their Sunday attendance is now well below that of the NFL, their average age is approaching retirement age, and their leadership is becoming more deranged by the day. I expect some radical "reorganization" or "reimagining" in the next few years which will result in a secular empty shell of what once was.

St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston is the most unfriendly church I have ever attended. In the early 1990s I was an airline pilot on a Sunday layover, and asked the hotel front desk “where’s the closest Episcopal or Catholic church?” It was a short walk away. On entry and exit, no one spoke to me, and during the peace, everyone avoided me.

I was so upset that when I got home I cancelled the $50 check I had written them. Jerks.

Well, God bless him. I imagine it wasn’t an easy decision.
