If all liturgies were as Archdruid Eileen proposed, the C of E would be packing them in.

Regarding sex in the Anglican Communion, I assume most people are for it, as long as it doesn't scare the horses, and the participants think of God, either the monarch or the provincial primate, and country.
I still think "primate" is all too apt a description, at times, but then I'm thinking of Linnaean, not ecclesiastical, classification.

Aficionados of the stranger parts of the Internet will be aware of the insane ramblings of the "Freeman on the Land" movement.

Paul Williamson's challenges to the perfectly legal decisions of the Church of England have a similar ring to them: appeals to mis-readings of irrelevant law, and a refusal to take no for an answer. It's sad, really. But being staggeringly rude to people during church services? Whatever the theological point he thinks he's making, it's just rude.
