How is this relevant to the Anglican Church?

Well, an unwary church shopper wanders into an Anglican Church run by the Diocese of Niagara. The spiritual pilgrim has the following conversation with the rector:

Pilgrim: Do you believe in the Virgin Birth.
Rector:  No.

Pilgrim: Do you believe that salvation comes through Christ alone?
Rector:  No.

Pilgrim: Do you believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ?
Rector:  No.

Pilgrim: Do you believe that every person is sinful and falls short of God’s requirements?
Rector: No.

Pilgrim: Do you believe that Christ is the propitiation for our sins?
Rector:  No.

Pilgrim: Do you believe that Christ will come again in glory and before him every knee shall bow?
Rector:  No.

Pilgrim: Not much of a church really, is it?
Rector:  Oh yes sir, finest in the district; we welcome everyone here.

This idea was inspired by a rector who, I suspect, would prefer to remain anonymous.
