No really, what the heck is an "Episcopalian"?

Sometimes when people find out that I am an Episcopalian, I get asked: "Episcopalian"? "What is that?" "Are you like a Catholic?" "Are you a Protestant? , etc...  So thinking about that, I decided for the moment to take a more comical view (per Robin Williams) of what it means to be an Episcopalian, and later I will put some thought into what it means to me....

Top 10 reasons to be an Episcopalian (by Robin Williams)

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.
