Why the silence, Archbishops?

May 17, 2021 by

by Martin Davie: The brilliant 1995 film The American President, written by Aaron Sorkin, ends with the film’s hero, the fictional President Andrew Shepherd, saving his presidency (and getting the girl) by breaking his silence and telling a press conference exactly what he thinks about the issues raised against him by his chief, opponent, the villainous Senator Bob Rumson.

from spiked: The Church of England was once known as the Tory Party at Prayer. Now it is as woke as your average students’ union. With every passing day, the Church of England seems to become more and more preoccupied with preaching the woke gospel. Just take Justin Welby’s latest initiative. Last June, amid the Black Lives Matter protests, the Archbishop of Canterbury announced a review of statues in places of worship. Now new Church of England guidance has been issued, suggesting that...
