You will readily understand why we are having a hard time keeping members within the Anglican Community in the United Kingdom and at the same time the attendances are haemorrhaging when you read the following (true as hard as it is to believe) story

Kelvin Holdsworth, Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, who is homosexual and listed 35 in a line of LGBT activists, in a ‘gay’ blog made the sinister and tasteless suggestion that England should pray for the four years old Prince George, who will one day become King, to grow up and find love with a fine young gentleman. He believes this would make the Church accept same sex marriage, and comes after all the publicity of Prince Harry marrying a woman.
England should pray for the four years old Prince Georg

His comments about the four-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, were met with outrage by fellow Christians – who condemned them. The director of the Church Society has commented, ‘to co-opt the Royal children to service a narrow sexual agenda seems particularly tasteless and, I should add, bizarrely illogical on his own grounds.

The director of Anglican pressure group Reform, said it was clear Holdsworth would ‘use any means to achieve his aim’ of seeing same-sex marriage in church. It is disappointing that he feels it necessary to bring a four-year-old prince into the argument’.

Of course Holdsworth has indicated his unsuitability for even holding the office of priest let alone Provost, due to his outrageous behaviour.

In addition to this discourteous outburst, during the Epiphany service this year, the Quran was read from the lectern, including "the Islamic teaching that Jesus is not the son of God and should not be worshipped. It was suspected Holdsworth knew in advance this was likely to be stated, and he declined to answer the allegation at the time. Yet when complaints were made to the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, he declined to make any condemnation.

If such similar controversial conduct was made in secular business the perpetrator would be instantly dismissed, but when it occurs on the Lord’s business, anything is allowed to go on.

Next time one of your friends mocks the Church, understand their disillusionement.
