A classic Episcopal moment is recounted with Vicky-Gene as a young student facing the dilemma of reciting the Nicene Creed:
"...To be expected to repeat these sentiments, Robinson decided, was an offense against conscience. He took his protest to one of the schools chaplains, who listened to him and told him that he saw no problem at all. If joining in the Creed distressed him, why not just speak only those portions of it that didnt offend? The chaplains counsel disarmed Robinson, but it also revealed to him that although the Anglican faith had cherished creeds, it had no absolute doctrine, a paradox rooted in its beginnings as the Church of England...."
Fast foreward one generation, and it's no surprise that Frank Griswold, can make the following statement with a straight face
"...from the classical point of view sexuality is to be exercised only within heterosexual, monogamous marriages. But Griswold notes that the church has, through time, come to an understanding of marriage and sexuality that is less rigid than that prescribed by the Bible and church tradition. The Episcopal Church over the years has come to, let us say, an understanding of the human person that is more sophisticated, possibly, than the understanding on the part of the Biblical authors.
There you have it... Truth is about being "sophisticated"
