Lent Blog 20: Why be Anglican/Episcopalian

For some reason I didn't see this when it came out, so I thought it was worth another airing. It may or may not be genuine, but I'd like to think it is:

Top 10 Reasons to be an Episcopalian/Anglican

(from the comedian Robin Williams, who is an Episcopalian, on an HBO special circa 2002)

10. No snake handling.
9. You can believe in dinosaurs.
8. Male and female God created them; male and female we ordain them.
7. You don't have to check your brains at the door.
6. Pew aerobics.
5. Church year is color-coded.
4. Free wine on Sunday.
3. All of the pageantry - none of the guilt.
2. You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized.

And the Number One reason to be an Episcopalian:
1. No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you.
