Bad Altar

Jackson Pollock's Bath Mat?

Some people wonder if the trads are wrong, or somehow exaggerating, when they say that The Episcopal Church (TEC), is pushing a different religion.

I'll let the above 'altar' speak for itself - they don't even bother to dress up like Christians anymore.

Here's a real Altar, at Pusey House, Oxford.



Comper had this to say about Altars.

"[A church] is a building which enshrines the altar of Him who dwelleth not in temples made with hands and who yet has made there His Covenanted Presence on earth. It is the centre of Worship in every community of men who recognize Christ as the Pantokrator, the Almighty, the Ruler and Creator of all things: at its altar is pleaded the daily Sacrifice in complete union with the Church Triumphant in Heaven, of which He is the one and only Head, the High Priest for ever after the order of Melchisedech."

I think he's right.

I don't know what that is hanging in front, but to me it looks like a giant sub sandwich. See the mustard?

You have a point - could be a sub - regurgitated?

I don't get it. If they're going to do all the wild and crazy things they like, I guess I'd feel better about it if they would stop calling themselves Christians. But I guess a religions called "Liaranity" doesn't have as many positive connotations.

'Liaranity'? I'll have to quote you on that, Bluesun.

From the look of what is on the altar, they seem to have confused the mass with a picnic lunch. O tempora, O mores!

I agree, and have a look at all that wine. Things are bound to get messy...
