The reputation of the Western Anglican church is hovering between irrelevant and international laughingstock.

The Guardian conducted a poll on whether holding the Anglican Communion together matters:

The Anglican communion’s foundations are looking shaky in the wake of a controversial Episcopal vote. But does it really matter if this church fragments? Is it time to ditch the idea of a coherent, single Anglican communion? In short, is the Anglican communion worth it?

    But I agree with the first sentence. I was recently considered a non-Christian simply because I was an Anglican.

  2. Religion is pointless-no religious group, therefore, can have a useful life.
    Anglicanism is to religion what reconstituted lowfat milk is to beverages.
