"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

You know you're an Episcopalian ...

... when they say in Star Wars, "May the Force be with you," and you respond, "And also with you."

This and other mildly amusing observations (what other kind of amusements would Episcopalians want?) at Stand Firm.

Some of my other favorites:

Episcopalians believe their rectors will visit them in the hospital, even if they don't notify them that they are there.

Episcopalians usually follow the official liturgy and feel it is their way of suffering for their sins.

Episcopalians think that the Bible forbids them from crossing the aisle while passing the peace.

If you need to set down your sherry on the armoir in order to write out a check for the Sexton at Christmas, then you aren't an Episcopalian.
