38. Another happy convert
I used to be Lutheran, but they've gotten so "family oriented" and suburban in the past twenty years that I as an older single "city mouse" no longer feel at home.

I know what you mean about Anglo-Catholics being heavily gay. I attended an Anglo-Catholic parish for part of the time I was in graduate school, and I swear, half the congregation and, for part of the time, all the clergy, were gay, and the parishioners, at least, were not closeted.

That's what makes the whole schism thing so odd.
