12,729.  The Bishop of Carlisle [COE] recently ... said that the floods in northern Yorkshire that devastated a large part of England in the summer, and killed and dispossessed a large number of people, were punishment for homosexuality.  To connect meteorology to morality seems to me I have say flat-out idiotic.  (Christianity & Anglicanism & Floods & Homosexuality)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

31,924.  The prince's official job description as king will be 'defender of the faith', which currently means the state-financed absurdity of the Anglican Church, but he has more than once said publicly that he wants to be anointed as defender of all faiths — another indication of the amazing conceit he has developed in six decades of performing the only job allowed him by the hereditary principle: that of waiting for his mother to expire.  (Royal Family & Anglicanism)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

59,219.  A grown person with a beard like the Archbishop of Canterbury dons a skirt to say that he thinks the tsunami may be a judgment on us.  This is idiotic.  It’s cretinous.  It’s not critically reported.  Christopher Hitchens, interview Dennis Miller, 2007

 

 

31,925.  This is what you get when you found a political system on the family values of Henry VIII.  At a point in the not-too-remote future, the stout heart of Queen Elizabeth II will cease to beat.  At that precise moment, her firstborn son will become head of state, head of the armed forces, and head of the Church of England.  In strict constitutional terms, this ought not to matter much.  The English monarchy, as has been said, reigns but does not rule.  From the aesthetic point of view it will matter a bit, because the prospect of a morose bat-eared and chinless man, prematurely aged, and with the most abysmal taste in royal consorts, is a distinctly lowering one.  (Royal Family & Insults & Charles Prince & Anglicanism)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

59,218.  The wretched church of which he [Peter Hitchens] is a member.  He understands as easily as I do that Rowan Williams just does this perfect impersonation of a Welsh trap sheep meeting on some hillside in the rain.  And it’s more of a tragedy to me, but you can’t miss a thing like that.  Christopher Hitchens, In Confidence

 

 

59,230.  In the aftermath of the recent wave action in the Indian Ocean, even the archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williamson [sic], proved himself a latter-day Voltairean by whimpering that he could see how this might shake belief in a friendly creator.  Williamson is of course a notorious fool, who does an almost perfect imitation of a bleating and frightened sheep, but even so, one is forced to rub one's eyes in astonishment.  Is it possible that a grown man could live so long and still have his personal composure, not to mention his lifetime job description, upset by a large ripple of seawater?  Christopher Hitchens   

 

 

29,960.  For over a thousand years they believed that they possessed the greatest asset we could hope for: God.  (England & Protestantism & Anglicanism)  Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, How God Made the English I: A Chosen People?  BBC 2012

 

29,961.  Religion: a force that shaped the English soul.  (England & Protestantism & Anglicanism)  ibid.

 

 

29,971.  At the heart of that change was the Christian Church.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England)  Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, How God Made the English II: A Tolerant People?  BBC 2012

 

29,973.  A thousand years of history was going to be junked ... The Reformation was a watershed.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England & Reformation & Reformation)  ibid.

 

29,974.  For the next three hundred years Catholics would be excluded from all positions of power.  (England & Protestantism & Catholic & Church of England)  ibid.

 

 

29,979.  Just like ancient Israel, only better.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England)  Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, How God Made the English III: A White and Christian People?  BBC 2012

 

29,980.  Did He also make them White and Christian?  (England & Protestantism)  ibid.

 

29,990.  And a particular kind of Christianity at that.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England)  ibid.

 

29,991.  An all-embracing Anglicanism ... I knew that the Church of England didn’t mean the same for everyone.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England)  ibid.

 

29,992.  The English Church was born in the sixteenth century out of that revolution in Christianity we call the Protestant Reformation.  (England & Protestantism & Church of England & Reformation)  ibid.

 

29,994.  A continuous reinvention of something much older.  You can see it in the nation’s plethora of chapels and meeting houses.  (England & Protestant & Anglicanism)  ibid.

 

29,998.  I see the Church of England as an icon of English plurality.  (England & Anglicanism)  ibid.

 

 

30,787.  You fiend.  Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity.  Have you ever consider a career in the church?  (England & Elizabeth & Bishop & Anglicanism)  Curtis & Elton, Blackadder II: Money, Bishop of Bath & Wells & Blackadder

 

 

30,808.  The Church of England now condemned all the doctrines of Whigism as false, seditious and impious, and declared most of them heretical and blasphemous as well.  (England & Charles II & Parliament & Anglicanism & Liberal)  Monarchy by David Starkey: Return of the King

 

 

31,975.  At the time of the King’s death one in three people in Britain believed the new Queen was chosen by God.  Not only head of state and head of the British commonwealth, Elizabeth became supreme governor of the Church of England.  (Elizabeth II & Royal Family & Anglicanism)  The Queen I, Channel 4

 

 

38,789.  The Church is looking for a candidate to maintain the balance.  Between those who believe in God and those who don’t.  (Government & Anglicanism)  Yes, Prime Minister: The Bishop’s Gambit s1e7, Sir Humphrey at Balliol

 

 

53,049.  In September 2008 the Church of England issued a belated apology for its attack on Charles Darwin.  Darwin hasn’t killed God: religious people have simply found different ways to justify their faith.  Has he destroyed morality?  Again, no.  To understand the origin of morality doesn’t mean you must cast it aside.  But Darwin has changed the terms of trade.  He’s returned us to Nature.  To its wonder, to its glory, and to its danger.  Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution questions almost everything we thought we knew about ourselves.  Where we come from.  Why we behave as we do.  The origins of our morality.  It isn’t comfortable and it isn’t easy but the more science looks at this theory, the truer it turns out to be.  Man is the truth-seeking primate.  Darwin has given us a great truth.  And there is no going back.  (Charles Darwin & Evolution & Truth & Morality & Anglicanism)  Andrew Marr, Darwin’s Dangerous Idea

 

 

59,151.  God for many of the Anglicans is nothing more than a sort of awkward geriatric relative.  (Atheism & Disbelief & Religion & Anglicanism & God)  Dr Jonathan Miller: A Rough History of Disbelief I: Shadows of Doubt *****

 

 

59,217.  The Anglican version of the viruses are a fairly benign one to me.  Professor Richard Dawkins, In Confidence
