There is a reason it is the ONLY church to actually lose membership in the last 10 years. Every other church has at least kept up with a growing population.

Politicizing the church has been the single worst thing this Anglican/Episcopalian churh has done, except for its founding based on beheading a King's wives.

There are more Roman Catholics in Britain attending church on Sundays than Church of England. Many village churches around the country have closed and are slowly decaying, it's a huge problem for the Brits who consider those buildings part of their heritage.

Anglicanism, Episcopalianism, or the Church of England, is a denomination rather than a sect.

I suspect it is because most ( not all, obviously..think of that priest for Obama) Catholic priests/bishops stay out of "advising" how to vote or think politically, and instead focus on their jobs of homilies concerning the readings of the bible/commmandments and how to think of them in modern times, and counseling individuals for marriage, in stress, etc.

sorry, my post was in response to the poster who states that more Roman Catholics go to church in England than Anglicans...
