Any Anglican churches in Poland?

Who cares? Not to be offensive to any churchgoers out there but those are mostly irrelevant denominations. Heretics used to be so mighty but now they are reduced to unimportant folklore.

Only some places in the US and the RCC are still going somewhat.

all C of E Bishops since 1930 have Old Catholic consécration too

Brilliant. After all, Anglicans and Old Catholics are two Catholic churches (but not Roman!).

That's the blueprint of ecumenism that all Christian churches should follow.

Truth is not measured in number of adherents, otherwise we would all have to be Confucianists of Hindu. :) True Christians are supposed to be "the salt of the Earth"; and how much salt can you have in a dish? 90%? 50%? That would be hardly edible, wouldn't it? :)

The first problem with any religion is it trains kids to be trusting and obedient - a clear case of child abuse. Later, they become adults who are trusting and obedient and easy prey for civilian criminals, army recruiters, and the who*res they elected.

Very true. There have been relations between those two parts of the Church for around a century, and the Anglican Society of St Willibrord has long existed to build and maintain links with the continental Old Catholics.

Sadly, the name Old Catholic is sometimes also used within an odd subculture (episcopi vagantes) in the UK and elsewhere who sometimes describe themselves as Old Catholic (in part to suggest legitimacy, in part to confuse) but aren't anything to do with Utrecht except for a tenuous and misleading historical link. That's appeared in Poland now, with two or three 'independent bishops' but fortunately there haven't been any scandals yet as far as I know.

That's the blueprint of ecumenism that all Christian churches should follow.

Very true.

I never meant numbers.
