I'm just waiting for the thread to end, but if it doesn't pick up shortly I'm going to bed.

Which I'm planning on doing even if it does pick up.

Woo, thread's still up.

Going back a bit, when I was Anglican I identified myself as Protestant, personally.

Yeah, though some "high Anglicans" might as well be Catholics.

I think I used to identify as Protestant.

I haven't given it thought for about 10 years through, so I couldn't be certain.

I suppose so. The church I went to displayed a statue of the Virgin that was a gift from the local Catholic church, but I don't think that really meant anything.

Incidentally, I have a funny story.

My sister is sewing a particularly difficult cross stitch of the last pope for her friend. Her friend recently dropped out of the whole religion thing, and my sister doesn't want to keep the pope because...who would? But her friend is still going to WYD and was on the front page of the local paper still being quite supportive of the whole religion thing - likely because he's head boy (I think!) at a particularly religious school.

It amuses me, anyway.

I can't believe anybody is actually going to WYD. Who the hell spends shitloads to sleep at Randwick Raceway and say prayers they could say at home? Wowz0rz teh Popez0r will lead the prayer! Great. I could get an old geezer down the road to say the prayer and it would have the same effect.

Hah, Catholics.

I always thought that Anglicans would've forged an identity for themselves, rather than identify as either Catholic or Protestant.

I'm amused the whole stage setup I've seen on TV rivals the Vertigo Tour stage.


COOL JESUS AND A SHOW!

I identified as Protestant for the most part, but as I drifted away, I identified solely as Anglican to distance myself from Protestant's extremists. I think Anglicans are happy having a bet both ways, really.

This just reminds me of megachurches in the US. You could go one way down the road and get to a 20,000 seater basketball arena where U2 are playing tonight, or go the other way and arrive at a megachurch seating 30,000 where Jeebus wants YOU to buy a new gold-plated Bible and tithe ten percent so that we can keep persecuting teh gheyz.
