The latest from Lambeth
The English trying to be English about apostasy and rank evil
A big nothing. Or, as G.K. Chesterton explained 80 years ago, the (very English) virtues of charity and tolerance knocked off base - à la liberalisme.

Official statement

P.J. O'Rourke once described a statement from HM's Government regarding 'the Troubles' about 'an acceptable level of violence' as 'the British trying to be British about Northern Ireland'.

As friend Joseph Oliveri says, 'Can we imagine a real bishop, a true pastor of souls like St Athanasius sitting down to chit-chat with Arian bishops and saying, for example, "It's okay for us to disagree about the nature of Christ's divinity, because diversity and embracing our differences is what the Church is all about"??'
