What is a Parson?

Parson is just an old fasioned word for an Anglican cleric in charge of a parish. It came to be used mostly as an informal and familiar term for any Protestant clergy in rural areas. Many people still use a variation of it when they call the minister's house the "Parsonage."

So are you Anglican clergy or protestant or a parson or none of the above?
