Writing in The Spectator, Rod Liddle asks the question, “why does the Church of England exist?” in his piece “The C of E Has Forgotten Its Purpose.” With constant capitulation to the pressures of the politically correct wasteland that Britain has become, the C of E no longer has a voice, spiritual or otherwise. This is a particularly stinging critique, one that is worth reading. But don’t think that Liddle is on a tirade against religion in general, or all Anglicans. His point is that the leaders, in particular Rowan Williams, have lost all credibility both in the eyes of the church and in the eyes of the British in general.
