    I think it’s inevitable that people of non-Christian religions will take part in some way in the Coronation. It’s just taking the split with the Catholic Church at the Reformation a step further. King Charles says he wants to be defender of faiths, not “the faith” so I wonder what this will lead to. If he gets his way and Muslims and other non-Christians say prayers, for example, at the Coronation, will that lead to another split and the C of E break up?

      I totally agree. There will have to be participation from all religions, otherwise the woke crowd will cause a fuss. I don’t think it would lead to a split within the Anglicans because they pride themselves on being open to everyone and everything, really, boil it down.

      You’d definitely expect the inclusion and diversity thing to be obvious at the coronation but it seems not – I’ve had a bit of a browse online and can’t see anything plus the link to the site posted by Toby below, gives a list of those taking part and it doesn’t include imams or rabbis etc. not that I can see, anyway.

    N O T I C E . . .

    I’ve received an email asking if any of us has access to the following article which appeared in The Times on Friday:

    Priests rebuke archbishop ‘who advised against preaching Catholicism’
    Archbishop of Glasgow William Nolan’s letter to parishes described as ‘a slap in the face’ as priests question how the archdiocese can afford a £1m evangelism fund.

    If anyone has a subscription to The Times and can either send me the link or post it here, that would be great. Thanks.

    I had planned to post a thread to discuss the Flourish report about the Archbishop’s (ridiculous) statement about evangelisation, and that is still in the pipeline, so if we can access that Times report, that would help greatly. Thank you for listening to my call 😀

      I hope you do post something on the Archbishop’s shocking use – or misuse – of funds in the name of “evangelisation”, that’ll be right.

      On topic, I think it’s only to be expected that there will be all sorts of un-Christian input into the coronation – Charles is a follower of fashion, whether it’s religion or climate change, whatever.

      It will be shocking to see it, even though it’s a Protestant service.

      I agree with Lily about a thread on the archbishop’s misuse of funds when he really doesn’t believe in evangelism.

      I also agree with Lily that there will have to be input from Muslims and other non-Christians. It’s the way of the world nowadays. I wouldn’t even be surprised to see it at the next conclave, LOL!

    Please folks, lay off mentioning the Archbishop of Glasgow thread – I AM working on it, so it will be online as soon as possible. I just hope the priests involved in contacting The Times don’t read it, because I’m what might be described as “merciless” towards them. Let this, please, be the last word on the topic for now – otherwise, there will be no point in publishing a thread on the subject.

    Returning to the Coronation…

    Yes, I think so far everyone is correct; looks like it would go very much against the grain for the new King to fail to be “inclusive” about “diversity” 😀

    It will make very interesting viewing on the day!

    Seems like manufactured outrage to fill a slot on a rolling TV news channel, has it actually been suggested anywhere that its going to be a multi-faith coronation? The Palace and even the Government have provide very specific guidance on who exactly has a role in the coronation and it doesn’t appear to be especially ecumenical or remotely multi-faith. There is much to get upset about in this country but this non-story probably isn’t it…

      I’m not remotely upset about it.

      Thank you for the link, though – it does appear to belie the claims online and in the video about non-Anglicans actively participating in the ceremony. So, thank you for posting it.

    I can’t see much except a Guardian (left wing) headline urging “diversity” and “inclusion” at the Coronation but the big news today is that Prince Harry is going to come, but Meghan won’t.

    I tried to research the anthem a bit because I vaguely remember hearing that there was an anti-Catholic verse in it but I can’t find that, but I found one about the rebellious Scots, LOL!
