I don't think so, Episcopalians have priests not ministers. It was just generic Christian.

I'll be the first to admit that I don't know anything about Episcopalians.  But, they actually said that's what they were in one episode.  I don't remember which one, but it was one with Yasmine, the Muslim girl.

If some writer decided to make them Episcopal, they should have done their home work first. My uncle was a very strong Episcopalian & they do not have "ministers" or "Reverend", they are very much like Catholics, lots of kneeling, the Priests are dressed in a fancy garb, not the black robe. These people are some type of a generic Christian group.

Episcopalians have been referred to as "Catholic Lite".  They share many things in common and are more or less equivalent to Anglicans,

They have confirmation classes so that narrows it down.  I'm not sure that it was ever really supposed to be a specific denomination, though.  I think it was kind of a mash up of Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Hollywood Holier Than Thou.

You know, this doesn't have anything to do specifically with what religion they are, but in that episode where they went to dinner at the Glasses, how could Annie not know that mixing meat and dairy was not kosher.  All the kosher rules are in the Old Testament, which she really should have read several times by this point in her life.

Because by then Annie was  a totally self  absorbed twit or she wouldn't have  taken all that food to  start with.

There was never once any credible evidence that Annie had ever even heard of Jesus. Never mind knowing the ins and outs of the Old Testament.

It also irritated me that they had Rabbi Glass asking Eric who "the lamb" was.  As a Jew, he would be well aware of the sacrificial lamb and what the savior was supposed to take the place of.

 

I also go irritated in the episode about Staff Sergeant Dwight J. Morgan where Ruthie is talking about her family.  She says that he dad is a protestant minister who is grateful for freedom of religion (no issue there) and encourages people to pick a religion, any religion, and practice it.  I don't know a single protestant minister who would say it doesn't matter what religion you pick.  In the Christian faith, if you don't trust in Jesus Christ as your savior, so if you are a Buddhist or Muslim or whatever, you don't go to Heaven. And you are supposed to love your neighbor enough to tell him the gospel and encourage him to accept Jesus. Then again, I'm not sure that the Camdens were actually Christian. Is there a religion where you worship yourself?  If so, I'm thinking that's what they were.

Maybe she was just confused.  Because he was against Matt converting to Judaism to marry Sarah (although it's a bad idea to convert religions solely for marital reasons anyway). And, when Lucy was going to explore her options before joining his church, he basically guilted her into not.  I think Ruthie was just confusing Eric's general tolerance and non-hit-over-the head approach to encouraging other religions.
