From the Daily Mail:Church of England baptism services may be re-written to remove some references to Christianity.The plan for a new ‘baptism lite’ service designed to make christenings more interesting to non-churchgoers will be considered next month by the Church’s parliament, the General Synod.Supporters say the baptism service should be ‘expressed in culturally appropriate and accessible language’ that is readily understood by ‘non-theologically versed Britons’.But traditionalist clergy said the idea amounted to ‘dumbing down’.

I saw this on the "Acts of the Apostasy" blog. This is tantamount to apostasy. How any practicing Christian can remain in communion with the C of E is beyond me if this actually goes through.
