“King Canute would have appreciated the dilemma. He famously ordered the sea to halt at his feet in order to demonstrate to sycophantic courtiers that even a monarch was powerless before the forces of nature. The churches are now faced with a tide of secularism that seems equally irresistible. In fact, their defences are being over-run so fast that they are sometimes at a loss to know how to respond.”
