Is it becoming standard practice in ECUSA to replace recalcitrant orthodox priests with priestesses, as an object lesson to their congregations?
They have to put the priestitutes somewhere...usually in small, rural churches or troubled ones such as this one. What a gold-plated mess. ECUSA is an embarrassment to Christendom and ought to be ashamed to display the cross on their buildings.
A "priest" is someone who has taken and represents (and practices) the Catholic faith.
Protestant clerics are "ministers."
I realize that some in the ECUSA still mistankenly promote their clerical positions as being "priests," but it's a misnomer.
The ECUSA is a protestant "church" and therefore, their clerics are minisers.
"Priest" is a Catholic moniker, a title to indicate a man who is ordained by the Catholic Church to represent the Catholic faithful.
Not that anyone asked, I realize, just saying from a point of clarity.
Episcopal ministers, especially, some of them at least, tend to abuse the term of "Priest" and it is entirely misleading -- which may be the point, I've often wondered.
