We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's neither Protestant nor Catholic -it's from the excellent Anglican and Episcopalian Great Litany which is well-worth perusing once in a while:
That it may please thee to give us true repentance; to forgive us all our sins, negligences, and ignorances; and to endue us with the grace of thy Holy Spirit to amend our lives according to thy holy Word, we beseech thee to hear us, good Lord
They are the church that was spun off when HenryVIII left the Pope(Catholic Church) in order to "divorce" one of his wives. There were some land and money issues also involved in the split. The Lutherans come about from the Protestant side of events. In the US the church is "Episcopal" (more liberal), in all other countries the Church is Anglican (almost Catholic except you can get a divorce and not be left out in the cold). HOWEVER, there is no longer an Episcopal Church in the USA because the Dirty Girls and their obedient castratos destroyed the church during the last fifteen years. Lest we forget that the Seattle daughters of great wealth who put Obama in the WH, are the same women who put the current 'leader' of the Episcopal church into office about 12 years ago. I was there when one of the young priests was asked how he was going to get the older ministers to accept homosexuality and his response was simple: "I manage their retirement accounts--they go along and get their retirement package, or they don't." Simple as that folks--
In my youth in the Boston area I attended the episcopal church and would often go to catholic masses as well. Our church would conduct some of their service in Latin but most was in English, ditto for the catholic church. The biggest difference was that in the episcopal church we sang, we sang a lot and loudly. I love to sing but my wife tells me I can't sing so I don't except when driving alone. Our church was stunningly beautiful. Saddly when I visited a few years back it was in disrepair and suffering from the failings of the new leaders of the Episcopal church in America (faculty wife is right). My memories are intact though.
