@paoloz5 @emily_mininger Yes, in that “the Anglican church down the street” is not THE Anglican Church. Two different things. One’s a building, the other a religion

@paoloz5 @emily_mininger Or: ‘I belong to the Anglican Church’ would be uppercase because it refers to the denomination’s proper name.

@paoloz5 @emily_mininger Still generic, still lowercase. ‘My family attends St. Paul’s Anglican Church, which is in my neighbourhood,’ would be uppercase. Get it?

@paoloz5 @emily_mininger Not at all. ‘Anglican church down the street’ is a generic usage; St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Anglican Church (institution) = proper names.
