Church of England part of the corporatist establishment
In so many matters which affect the lives of the British people the Church of England, while failing to promote Christianity, promotes politically contentious matters such as wind farms, regional Government and the European Union and even fails to speak out against murderous attacks on Christians throughout the world.
But I see the Church establishment has been forced to drop plans for six giant wind turbines on land it owns in North Devon. Angry parishioners noted that the Government was providing (out of the people's pockets) vast subsidies without which the wind farm would have been an economic nonsense. As one parishioner said: “This is a great moment, it’s a David and Goliath victory. The Church is an enormous institution and a very large landowner." Indeed it is and in this as on so many other issues it is on the side of big Government and big money and totally alienated from the flock they claim to lead! They are verily a part of the corporatist Statist establishment, mere politicians in fancy clothes. They could change of course and become a moral light again, but I doubt they will.
