Give Me That Old Time Religion
Modern paganism is an invented tradition, says Tim Stanley. So why is the Church of England offering it a helping hand?
The Church of England has announced that it is creating an outreach programme for pagans, training ministers to build ‘a pagan church where Christianity [is] very much in the centre’. It is another nail in the coffin for the poor old established Church, whose leaders have become so desperate to appear inclusive that they will even embrace heretics. When they throw a bring-and-buy sale with satanists in St Paul’s Cathedral, they will have finally crossed the Rubicon.
