I don't know enough about the Episcopal Church to know the answer, but I do know they've had openly gay clergy for a while now. I don't know if that flexibility is only in matters of sex but it would seem weird to me for that to be the one standout.

My Church teaches us that Heavenly Father does have a physical body and is, obviously, male. That makes this action by the Episcopal Church seem even more bizarre from this point of view.
My sister-in-law is part of the Episcopal Church to the point where she has gone to national gatherings for the church where they vote on church policies, and her dad is a pastor of one. Their church services are a bit more on the "formal" side, but outside of the church they seem to very... lax. Her dad-- again, a pastor-- has straight up said that Revelation was just a dream and has no other significance. My sister-in-law has told me-- and this isn't even a paraphrase-- that they're "not big fans of the Bible".

I just don't get it. If you don't even believe the Bible is reliable and/or true, why are you part of the Christian religion at all?

That's sad :( The Bible is God's word, not a buffet to pick and choose what you like out of it
