We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Not surprised, from what I have heard. I know they threw out the Ten Commandments years ago, I know they adopted secular, leftist values rather than religious ones, and I knew that the weighty theologian John Lennon convinced them that God was obsolete, and I knew no-one was going to church in England any more - why would they? You can get the secular propaganda from the newspaper and the telly (the C of E blames the West for 9-11, for example. For all you can tell, the Bishops are Moslem).
The C of E is going down the same dead-end path as the main-line US churches. The Protestants tried a revival in opposition to the C of E in the 1600s - and it was a great success in keeping Christ alive in the English-speaking world, even though they tried to kill my ancestors. Time for another revival in England, and let's just bury this useless corpse of a "church." God will surely not miss such a travesty of his will and his word.
