Clergy told to take on the 'new atheists'
Clergy are to be urged to be more vocal in countering the arguments put forward by a more hard-line group of atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, who have campaigned for a less tolerant attitude towards religion.

A report endorsed by Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, warns that the Church faces a battle to prevent faith being seen as "a social problem" and says the next five years are set to be a period of "exceptional challenge".

It expresses concern that Christians are facing hostility at work and says the Church could lose its place at the centre of public life unless it challenges attempts to marginalise religious belief. ...

The Church of England is atheistic, whilst hypocrically making profession of Christianity. Bishop Ryle was not what he appeared to be. Nothing is in the Church of England. By the way Bishop J.C.Ryle declared that Oliver Cromwell has a child of he devil, that Calvinism was total error and that morality should not be preached to the ungodly, that the ungodly should not be instructed as to what is right and what is wrong, just keep telling them that Jesus loves them. More of this strange man is outlined at Protestantissues2.com

Yes it is very very vague on whether it stands on the Bible.
True Christians can see that it does not.
If this is to be a fight between the Anglicans and the atheists then it will be a battle between Liberalism and complete ignorance - neither of which can comprehend the Truth in Scripture. Both sides will start nowhere and end up deeper in nonsense.

Well put.

Rowan Williams has such a low view of scripture that atheists have very little to debate him on.
let's not get taken in by him.

This is a debate amongst the spiritually dead.

I have to agree with you gentlemen about the unsuitability of the Anglican Church to defend Christianity. It does take Christians to do that.

1Peter 3
15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always {being} ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;---NASB

So, we all should be prepared as best we can.

"A report endorsed by Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, warns that the Church faces a battle to prevent faith being seen as "a social problem""

What on earth could Rowan Williams
possibly know about faith?

I disagree - Dawkins and his circle are remarkably shallow, unoriginal, and simplistic thinkers whose arguments are not worth spending much time refuting. They tend to make up for the deficiencies in their arguments by being arrogant and challenging, and it's not possible to have any sort of discussion with people like that. Paying attention to Dawkins and his crowd gives them a false legitimacy, when the burden of proof is on them to say something meaningful.

"Clergy are to be urged to be more vocal in countering the arguments put forward by a more hard-line group of atheists such as Richard Dawkins...."

The non-christian Liberal C.of E. treating the symptoms instead of the cause again.

Their battle against the atheists will be fought with a plastic blunt and less effective sword than the Sword of the Spirit. This through their own evil efforts to destroy the authority of the Bible.
