Episcopal Stockholm Syndrome

An Anglican vicar was was asked BBC Radio 4's Moral Maze whether he thought the Established Church was a good thing:

The Evangelical vicar Steve Chalke didn't quite face the issue, but kept insisting that the churches must reject any form of privilege in order to serve society. "Is that OK? I mean, I wouldn't want to offend anyone, really. You know, the Church of England has rejected all that triumphalist religious stuff anyway. The CofE really cares about the poor... no really......i...is this microphone even on?"

No. He didn't really say those last things.

At least, not out loud.
