Top 10 Reason for Being an Episcopalian

Under the category of "From Where I'm Sitting," time to time, I look at what other parishes share with their congregations. Recently I found this item from the rector to his church.  So, 'ganked' from the St. Mark's, Alexandria weekly e-blast:

The comedian Robin Williams, who is an Episcopalian, gave these Top Ten reasons for being an Episcopalian on a recent HBO special:

10.   No snake handling.
 9.    You can believe in dinosaurs.
 8.    Male and female, God created them; male and female, we ordain them.
 7.    You don't have to check your brains at the door.
 6.    Pew aerobics.
 5.    Church year is color coded!
 4.    Free wine on Sunday.
 3.    All of the pageantry, none of the guilt.
 2.    You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized.

And the #1 reason for being an Episcopalian:

 1.    No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one Episcopalian who agrees with you.

He also describes the Episcopal church "catholic-lite."
