In his latest post, David Jenkins, who writes Anglican Samizdat for his “own entertainment and to poke fun at the religious and political establishment,” pokes fun at the Anglican Diocese of B.C. for opening a multi-faith chapel in its cathedral. The central unifying maxim of the Multi-faith Chapel of Compassion is the Golden Rule:
Dr. Logan McMenamie, the rector of Christ Church Cathedral Parish, believes, “Anglicans . . . have a particular calling to be a people that draw together folk of faith. “ It is also possible to hold a more cynical view: Dr. Logan McMenamie acknowledges the maxim, loosely translated as “if religion, all religions, don’t unite and stand together, religion, all religions, will fall together.” Good luck with that Dr. McMenamie, but as freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, secular humanists know, “You don’t need God to be good” . . .or to follow the Golden Rule.
