I think it fair to say right-wing extremism is not a huge problem in the Church of England. Yet its General Synod, backed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, has voted to ban clergy from joining the BNP. That even though one estimate has the number of CofE clergy in the BNP at a grand total of . . . one.
I would suspect *Anglican understatement alert* slightly more CofE clergy are involved in left-wing politics. Are there any bans or restrictions on them? Hmmmm?
