The Decline of the Church of England

Jonathan Wynne-Jones suggests that Christianity in the UK may have reached a tipping point today as the Church of England announces the merging of three dioceses into one in predominantly Muslim areas.

The language is not of cuts, but instead of a “radical and realistic” approach, and Church House argues the changes will make “for more effective ministry and mission”. But for all the attempts to try and talk up the new proposals, it is difficult to see past the fact this represents the first time the Church has reduced the number of its dioceses.

It is also difficult not to see the merger – or axing depending on which way you’re looking at it – in the context of the rise of Islam in Britain. In Bradford, one of the dioceses that is being subsumed, Muslims make up as much as three-quarters of the population in some parishes.

A report published by the Church earlier this year discussed the issues facing clergy trying to minister in areas with high numbers of ethnic minorities. It revealed the percentage of Christians is as low as 10 per cent in some parishes.

When Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Bishop of Rochester, warned of “no-go areas” in Britain for non-Muslims, he was widely ridiculed and criticised, but the Church’s report suggests that his critics have their heads in the sand. Bleak and rather extreme it may have been, but statisticians have already predicted that by 2035 there will be more active Muslims in Britain than church-going Christians.

So Islam is rising fast and the Christian majority may be gone by 2035. Old Christian England is going down quickly and the white, nominally-Christian, leftist elites will be the ones to lose power. I hope they can be honest enough to face up to the horror that awaits them.

Let's see, if they get women bishops by 2012 or 13 and homosexual bishops shortly thereafter, they should enjoy their cultural Marxism for about 20-30 years at most before utter collapse and ruin under Sharia Law. It sure looks like God is not mocked.
