Martino - just seen your post, it came up just after I'd finished mine. In many ways you've hit the nail on the head my friend. There are some great Anglican churches around but that doesn't change my strong distate for the concept of a state church - and your comment illustrates why. This entanglement with the state is an embarrasment. The church should be independent and self governed, funded by its own members who voluntarily choose to be a part of it.
