Episcopalianism and Buddhism are Very Much Alike.

G. K. Chesterton once wrote:
Students of popular science, like Mr. Blatchford, are always insisting that Christianity and Buddhism are very much alike, especially Buddhism. This is generally believed, and I believed it myself until I read a book giving the reasons for it. The reasons were of two kinds: resemblances that meant nothing because they were common to all humanity, and resemblances which were not resemblances at all.
Of course, Christianity and Buddhism are as nearly opposite as is possible. The Episcopal "church" doesn't get that. But this guy does ... (Hat Tip: Baby Blue)

Christianity and Buddhism are not compatible. But The Episcopal "church" and Buddhism are compatible ... because TEc is not even remotely Christian any longer.
