I have made a new thread where we can discuss Carrie Fisher, Robin Williams and any other people that suffered from manic depression (bipolar disorder). Often these people are in entertainment business cos they are hilarious and funny, when they not at the funny farm. They need our prayers. Sometimes humour is a coping mechanism. I dont know first hand about the episcopalian church being abusive, but I do recall reading many stories of molestation of children at the hands of priests - and also it has a reputation of being gay friendly. One book I read called 'the bishops daughter' was revealing about this. Also I remember reading Laurence Olivier was abused as a boy by a priest, he belonged to the Anglican church. I didnt know they had official priests like the catholics do. he became a famous actor instead of a minister like his dad. Robin Williams was in a movie called License to Wed in which he played a minister, checking that a couple genuinely loved each other before they tied the knot. I was shocked by his death...I remember the day it happened, I just couldnt believe it. Carrie Fisher wrote several books detailing her struggles with mental illness. She wont mind us talking about it, as its in public now I guess. Her second marriage collapsed after she found out her husband had turned gay. Apparently he forgot to tell her and she forgot to ask. She has one daughter, Billie. Previously she was married to the singer song writer Paul Simon.
