Comments: opinion

Sentamu, in justifying an established church, dismisses the role played by bishops in the House of Lords, probably because many would argue that that role is not a positive one.

The other “virtues” of the church he talks about, however, have nothing to do with establishment. I suspect that he simply cannot imagine a Church of England that is not established.

Let’s hope the next Archbishop of Canterbury thinks more clearly and with more imagination.
