Traditional English piety

Traditional English piety is under threat from the denominations that claim to serve the English people. The Anglicans appear more interested in consensual sex between adults than in administering the sacraments and the Roman Catholics appear more interested in avoiding a vice rap than in preaching the word of God. The Orthodox are still considering the fall of Constantinople and the death of the last Emperor.

The English haven't always been an irreligious people and in the past they were a shining light of Catholicism and they respected the sacraments. It is no wonder that burials and funerals have no interest for the clergy in the 21st Century except for the money brought in from each service.
