anthills–Episcopalians & the Anglican Communion

-TEC–WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Filed under: Anglican Communion, Episcopal Church — anthill @ 10:29 pm

I get it! The official name change, eliminating PECUSA, and leaving only The Episcopal Church, can be seen as a political move to position this church for coming turf wars and perception wars. Smooth! If THE Episcopal Church has claimed the very simple, direct trademark, it will be left for the entity loyal to the Anglican Communion to poke around for the second best name.

I think TEC has some possibilities (harri-TEC, being my favorite). But, beginning now, I will make every effort to spell the name out as “the ecclesial organization formerly known as ECUSA,” if only to do my little ant part in possibly irritating one or two picnickers. Hey, if Prince could do such for years, why can’t I?
