The C of E

Well, John, that’s true about the martyred Latimer and Ridley, of course, but I’m a bit worried about the overall tone of that article. Rowan Williams as the saviour of the C of E? Hardly. Not only is he is a left-wing nutter, but he is far too prone to wanton displays of ‘erudition’ and theological obsession – neither of which have any part to play in the true traditions of C of E – nice cups of tea, country parsons, good-hearted social work, the best hymns in the world, the King James Bible, a fairly benign patriotism and a vague injunction to ‘play nice’.
