The New Puritans

Muriel Porter

$35.00

Paperback
The Anglican Diocese of Sydney is the largest, richest, most powerful and the most conservative diocese in Australia. Under the Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen, they are the fastest growing diocese in Australia and are increasingly influencing world Anglicanism, particularly in Asia and Africa with their conservative agenda on questions of morality, women and gay ordination. Tackling such subjects as abortion, stem cell research, euthanasia and 'family values', 'The New Puritans' explores these issues and its broader context in Australian politics.

- Publisher
The local and international effects of the ideological agenda of the diocese of Sydney-the largest, richest, and most influential diocese in the Anglican Church of Australia-are explored in this commentary. Over the past few decades, Anglicans in Sydney have increasingly modeled themselves on the sixteenth-century English Puritans, altering church services to strictly oppose the equality of women in the Church and preventing the Church's blessing of same-sex partnerships and the ordination of gay people.With this increasing religious fundamentalism, it is theorized that a schism within the Church of England may occur.
