Comments: ‘The Church of England is dying', warns former Queen’s Chaplain
When my cousin died, the funeral was handled by an Episcopal priest of her acquaintance. It was the strangest service, to see a priest with no faith in action. I wonder if he ever had any.

"I’m not sure I see much point in a church that just wants to be accepted as a sort of not too irritating chaplain to a secular and hedonistic culture, which is what it seems to be becoming. I want to remain a faithful Anglican, but increasingly it looks like that is only possible outside the C of E."
It ain't just the C of E, brother!

It sounds a lot like mainline denominations in America, too. For example, The UMC (see "Death throes of the Blue Model church.")

Which is why I left the pale dregs of the Presbyterian church for Orthodoxy.
