Elizabeth the Good: Editorial from The Critic

A time for Anglican Royalism, by Laudable Practice, The Critic: The funeral provided “recognition of how…a vision of sacral monarchy was integral to Anglicanism.”

Cranmer’s Collect, the Christian voice of hope, by Julian Mann, TCW:
“Paul’s teaching as reflected in Cranmer’s Collect [recited at the Queen’s Funeral] reminds Christians that they should view death very differently from the non-Christian world around them.”

“Surprisingly, it has been two people who have previously threatened the status of Christianity in the UK, Archbishop Welby and King Charles, who have eloquently reminded us of why our nation must remain a Christian one.”

Will the progressives censor the Bible? by Julian Mann, TCW:
IF KING Charles III is presented with a Bible at his Coronation, as his mother was at hers in 1953 as ‘the most valuable thing which the world affords’, he would get the full King James version. But for how much longer will uncensored Bibles be allowed in the United Kingdom?
