By the way, this new Anglican church is composed of dioceses, parishes and priests who have broken away from the Protestant Episcopal Church in North America, but who hate it when they are called "breakaway" dioceses, parishes and priests. But do you know what, dear readers? We at the Egg are not afraid to take a stand here, bold and courageous: breakway, breakaway, breakaway. There, we said it.
The name -- Anglican Church in North America -- sounds more reasonable than it really is. Although the name properly lacks a definite article, one can scarcely speak of it without adding one. And the minute one does, the minute it becomes "the ACNA," an invidious implication is made, suggesting that some other body may not be the real Anglican church.
