I grew up in the Episcopal church. (Chapel of the Cross junior choir, represent.) I’m not religious anymore, but there’s nothing more bittersweet than attending service in a church that’s, like, 10% full and 90% senior citizen.
I know, as an atheist I should dream of empty churches on Sunday morning, but actually being in one is a TOTAL BUMMER.
Anyway, forcing a schism because you’re scared of gay marriage is one way to kill your church.
Have fun with the archbishops of Africa, I hear those guys are pretty sane when it comes to gay people.
