Church of England: The state it's in

Here are some quotes and notes taken from "C of E: The Stats It's In" by Monica Furlong. This book is a history of the Chuch of England, it's foundation, the endless conflicts between itself and other Christians and eventually of it's final establishment with England, and then about it's modern decline in the face of secularism. It also explains the structure of the Church of England and the conflicts within it.

The State it's in - Monica Furlong

I knew Monica Furlong very well. I don't honestly believe that she even believed in God - the church was an institution which she used as a medium to express her anger with herself and the world. Although twice married
she struggled with her own homosexuality and channelled this by acting as a standard bearer for gay anglican clergy. I had never met anyone who was so intolerant to others who did not hold her own beliefs. unless you happen to be wearing a dog collar - she was very unsympathetic to anyone she perceieved as being 'weak'. whenever one had a conversation with Monica it always felt like she was listening to gather information for the next book. It was a strange experience.
