What do you mean when you say best? What values do you look for when deciding between religions?

Language and legacy. I am a High Church Anglican so I love the language of the Church and its legacy is most closely aligned to the of the initial founding of the Christian faith.

I still don't really understand what you mean by the "best religion for Britain", to me it sounds like you should choose the religion that gives the most benefits to British citizens.

And you've already disregarded a while load of religions by narrowing down on Christianity, what reasons do you have for that?

Well it is the established Church of England so people support believe it and support it if they want to maintain it.

Because I believe Christ died on the cross and was resurrected.

Jesus came to do away with religion by bringing in daily 2-way relationship with God. This is effected by people receiving what all the disciples got:

"they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues*, as the Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:4)

That gives you God's nature, anything else is "sin" and mortality, "the flesh".

When I met people that are living this new Life the differencve was obvious, I hope you visit and see for yourself.

* an unlearned prayer language - 12 Corinthians 14:2, 4.

As long as it's all secular.
I believe in toleration, not secularism.

William, were you born an Anglican? Do you actually believe in God? Or are you a member of the church for political reasons?

I don't like the language to be honest. It is too simple. This is what you never get from non-Conformist Protestant sects they try to dull things down so people can understand it. Rather than educating people and improving them. Anglicans believe in the two way relationship with God all Protestants do.

Ok. Secularism tolerates all religions. Do you believe in forcing your religion onto other people?
Secularism tolerates no religion having power. So the government has power over religion meaning religion is removed.

In the sense of Penal laws no. In the sense of passing and enforcing laws which come from Established and Preeminent morality of Anglican Church then yes.

No. My parents were non-Conformists. They aren't happy that I am an Anglican.

Yes I believe in God and have done for two years.

I supported the political power of the Anglican Church before I believed in God. However I believe in God and the Church of England now regardless of my politics. Though obviously my political views have been hardened and clarified since I now believe in God and the dogma of High Church Anglicanism.

And would you say that the majority of people follow Anglicanism in UK?
I would say there are over 20 million bapised members of the Anglican Church in England. It is by far the largest religious grouping in the nation.
