Does anyone know anything about the Episcopal church? I heard some strange stuff today that came straight from people who have been there. Lets, see, the woman priest when asked what the difference between the Episcopal church and RCC is replied, it's the Catholic church without the guilt. At their dinners they have the usual food table, and then an alcohol table. With assorted alcoholic beverages, including beer. Many were drunk. The wife of the couple who told us this was at a baby shower earlier this year that was held by the church and they even served alcohol there, plain or mixed the iced tea. She said these women were drunk. ( as were many at the dinner(those not drunk were drinking), 2 of which were state policemen in uniform). At the worship service they had communion(the couple refused to participate), everyone went up got there bread and wine, and when done the priest is expected to consume the rest. So there she stands cramming these wafers in her mouth and drinking down wine, and followed that by the leftover holy water, pouring it on her hands and licking it off so as not to waste anything holy. At this point I was ready to cry, they took the communion(Lord's supper) and turned it into something horrid and ugly, and it is to have meaning, and demeaned it. I just can't dwell on this. So anyway, we wanted to know if this is the usual, if this what they believe through out their church or if this some local oddity?
