Bishop says collapse of Christianity is wrecking British society - and Islam is filling the voidThere are a number of left-wing churches in this country that fill that bill as well. Churches that exist, seemingly, for no other purpose than to provide a vehicle for people to "find themselves." I'm reminded of the acquaintance up in Arlington who is now a lay official in her local Episcopal church. She's an avowed atheist. And just loves her church. There's a story being told there.

The collapse of Christianity has wrecked British society, a leading Church of England bishop declared yesterday.
It has destroyed family life and left the country defenceless against the rise of radical Islam in a moral and spiritual vacuum.
In a lacerating attack on liberal values, the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, said the country was mired in a doctrine of 'endless self-indulgence' that had brought an explosion in public violence and binge-drinking. (link)
Anyway, coming to a pulpit near you: The void.
May God help us all.
