Bein' a cradle Whiskypalian myself an' all -- a Southern
one, at that -- the phrase as I heard it was 'God's frozen
chosen'. But we used to apply it to the Presbyterians. Seems
a bit more appropriate, really, since the doctrine of Election 
has been greatly downplayed among Anglicans for quite some 
time -- four hundred years or so. Admittedly an ictus oculi 
for those who take the really long view.  

Episcopalians have changed a lot. Especially 'round here, 
in Noo Yawk. I'm not a bit surprised that Joel K found 
St Mary's congenial. Kooperkamp is a very impressive 
guy -- of course he's a fellow Kentuckian, so I'm 
prejudiced -- and it's a pretty interesting bunch of 
people who show up there.
