EPISCOPALIAN
SCHISM
Otherwise known as the unification of words that are hard to spell

On NPR - Canon David Anderson President and CEO of the American Anglican Council said the Bible is not open to interpretation (Google: 695,000 hits) unless you "apply the Clintonesque standard of what “is” is."

He sounds like an open-minded sort of chap; the kind you could learn from, the great truths of the soul and the afterlife.

Funny, the Bible scholars I’ve talked (not on a regular basis or anything, but I have talked to a few while working on articles) seem to say there’s plenty of room for interpretation (homesexuality).

Anderson was particulary talking about the rules of and qualifications for priesthood in the Bible — though I’m pretty certain it's not open to interpretion that Episcopalians (1789) and Anglicans (1534) weren’t around at the time the Bible was written - and the fact that homosexuality would disqualify one from being a priest.
