Odd remark re CofE school

Postby Brian Jordan » Mon Nov 10, 2014 2:01 pm

The Guardian has an article about a diocese flexing its muscles over its schools. This of itself is off topic but it ends in a curious remark.
The “Christian ethos” we signed up to was the spirit of kindness and forgiveness, not the anti-scientific intolerance we hear about from across the Atlantic
Could it be that the diocese - wherever it is - has become infected with YECism?

H'mmm, I find that closing remark worrying, though the existence of over muscularly evangelical diocese is entirely unsurprising - though frankly the CoE should not be importing theological tat from the USA. Especially given that the Anglican communion in the USA is largely against the stuff and knows just how noxious it is first hand.
