Suspension of the Episcopal Church?[edit]

Just a question: Should the recent "suspension" of the Episcopal Church in the United States be a section on this article under the topic controversies? JustTryintobeJust (talk) 21:00, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Archbishop Justin Welby clarified that the Episcopal Church is not suspended because the Primates' Meeting has no legal power to do that. "the Primates' meeting has no legal authority over Provinces."[1] SeminarianJohn (talk) 08:25, 28 April 2016 (UTC)SeminarianJohn

Proposed merge with Worker Sisters of the Holy Spirit[edit]

Does not demonstrate WP:GNG as written and relies too heavily on a single source. giso6150 (talk) 05:10, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

If we are going to merge it anywhere, it would seem to me that a more appropriate location would be Anglicanism#Religious_orders. Other Anglican religious orders are listed and described there with some history. Dabbler (talk) 12:45, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
They are already on a list in this section Anglican_religious_order#List_of_other_communities. Dabbler (talk) 12:49, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
I agree that Anglicanism#Religious_orders would be a more appropriate place to merge the article. giso6150 (talk) 15:17, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
I would prefer you left it as is, but if you must merge Episcopal Church would seem more logical.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:04, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

June 2016[edit]

In my view the last amendment to the lead is not an improvement; the previous version is more informative.--Johnsoniensis (talk) 22:50, 1 July 2016 (UTC)


"Each independent church has its own doctrine and liturgy, aligned in most cases on that of the Church of England; and each church has its own legislative process and overall episcopal polity, under the leadership of a local primate."

This is what the clergy-members of, for example, the Anglican Church of Canada, who have been to grad school say, but that does not make it true. If one looks at the diocesan and provincial constitutions of the Anglican Church in Canada, one tends to find that the defining factor of the parish/diocese is that it be in communion with the See of Canterbury. The idea that these are "independent" churches is mostly something cooked up due to, in my view, Episcopalian influence, as though every particular/national church in the communion were basically as independent as the traitorous episcopalians who rebelled against God's anointed sovereign all those years ago. MDiv. degrees tend to only go to _very_ ignorant socialist types in Canada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:569:7A31:4B00:905E:78F4:81E9:C28E (talk) 22:44, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
