Obscure Abuse

If the next diocese to leave the Episcopal Church used the following language in their departure amendment, I'd laugh myself silly.

"The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ’s ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same.
As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, Antioch and Rome, have erred; so also the Episcopal Church hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith."

Paraphrase of Article XIX.

I know no one else probably finds it funny........
