THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND LONG SINCE PASSED

An established church with a different law to the state is, in essence, a contradiction in terms.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND LONG SINCE PASSED — 8 Comments

  1. Hmmm. Does the State run an Established Church or does an Established Church run the State? I think either way it’s a bad deal. The Church of England was established only in a few places here (Virginia was one) during Colonial times and after the Revolution. Life was difficult for them after war. In the former Colonies after the war the non-established churches were much better off.

    I believe that the dis-establishment of the C of E would make both the State and the Church more free. (Perhaps the 1662 BCP could finally be retired as the official prayer book among other things).

  2. Being a contradiction in terms is what Anglicanism/Church of England does best; why do you think this will, or even should, change anytime soon?
    It’s too irrelevant for anyone but a tiny minority of those involved with it to notice and so it limps along.

    • It still has a lot more friends than you, Brad, and is nowhere near as irrelevant as you are. Heck, you’re a troll, man. Dog shit on your shoes is more popular than you.

      This Yank can’t help thinking this entry is needlessly wordy:

      “An established church is, in essence, a contradiction in terms”: fixed it! ;-/

    • This Englishman can’t help thinking that at least we don’t have the craziness from religious people that the yanks have to put up with (except for our Muslims, of course).
