A Presbyterian is a Methodist with money.
An Episcopalian is a Presbyterian with manners.
While there are many problems with my own church in the US (The Episcopal Church), the reason it has been unable to be indigenous like other Anglican bodies around the world, is primarily because it is the church of gin and lace. It was once the ‘Republican party at prayer’ and now it is the ‘Green party at prayer.’
With all of its claim to progressiveness you would think it was the religion of the masses. Not so. It is the religion of the elite. We never learned (with some notable exceptions) how to be accessible to people of all hues and economic backgrounds. In fact we have persecuted those who have tried to do just that (Wesley, as an example).
