    Episcopalians in the United States form the U.S. jurisdiction of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion is an outgrowth of the Church of England established through a schism in 1554 or thereabouts. Episcopalians are very "catholic" behaving protestants. Robin Williams once joked that we are "Catholic with one-third the guilt".

    It's hard to pin down Episcopalians theologically. Some of us are very conservative, and biblical literalists. In other words, some of us believe that the earth was created in exactly six days, and that the Bible is the literal and infallible word of God. Some of us are liberal, i.e. we believe in a revisionist Christian theology and reject the idea that the Bible is the literal word of God. Most Episcopalians fall in between and believe in a wide range of things.
