Reading things like this makes me glad I am not Anglican.

Fortunately, it is only a cracker the dog consumed. Disgusting nevertheless. The only good thing is that stories like this just cause more and more faithful Christian Anglicans to rise out of their pews, don their swim trunks, look across the Tiber, and say, "it's time".

Our pastor's dog once got out of the rectory and into the church by accident. That dog was always getting loose. He ended up drinking out of the baptisimal font. Whoopsie!!

Surely, DF, what you are thinking of here would be an unleavened, unconsecrated wafer. Even in my locale, crackers are only associated with Ritz or Town House, or maybe threads in the Political Asylum.

That wasn't very charitable of me to be sure. I apologise for being insulting. It just makes my blood boil, that no matter what I may think of the nature of the Anglican Eucharist, that this priestess thought so little of it.

Entertain conjecture of what I think of the priestess/female in sacerdotal garments.

True. Just pursuing terminological exactitude.

Although the clergy-person in question would certainly claim that the wafer she gave to Fido had been "consecrated" by a "priest". Of course, the whole question would be what she thought her "consecration" of that wafer did.

Is this not a good thread for a puppy picture?

But surely mediated in the end by the fact that she was not, in fact, a valid priest, as both you and I say.

As to what she assumed had occurred, it is not easy to say. Common among the varities of Anglicans.

This story was picked up by one of the major evangelical and orthodox Anglican sites. The comments were scathing.

This is a good pic and looks very much like my late, lamented black lab.

Awww. I have a chocolate lab. She's an old puppy, will be 15 in a few months, if she makes it to her birthday. She's doing OK, though, causing mischief as usual. :)

I said goodbye to mine 3 years ago, come mid Sep. She was nearing 16. Cherish yours.

Some years ago, our Bishop blessed a dog during the annual blessing of animals and it died the next day. It took a while for the good Bishop to live that one down!
