Do England's homosexuals outnumber Anglicans?

By Diogenes (bio - articles ) | Jul 10, 2003

The subtitle of the op-ed column in the Guardian says it all: "When is the C of E going to realise that homosexuality is now more popular in Britain than Christianity?"

Author Zoe Williams inveighs against the Anglican "extremists" and "homophobes" who oppose the gay-rights agenda. But that's old hat. What really stings is her analysis of survey data, which shows a clear rise in active homosexuality alongside a fall in Anglican church attendance. Any way you look at the statistics, she concludes, "you're still left with the C of E commanding fewer adherents, and you are also faced with the more important truth that churchgoers are an ageing population, whereas gay people are not."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    It's been a long time coming, but the Anglicans are starting to find out that they really aren't needed anymore. For nearly four centuries they've tried to be the niche of Christianity that claimed to follow Christ yet accomodate Caesar's perversions. Now the perverts outnumber them and have given notice that they don't need to be accomodated with a thin veneer of Christianity. This is going to put a lot of semi-Christians out of work.
