Evangelical Christians 'uncritical' in support for Trump, senior bishop says
Paul Bayes, bishop of Liverpool, accuses some religious leaders of ‘colluding with a system that marginalises the poor’
A senior Church of England bishop has lambasted conservative evangelical Christians in the US for their “uncritical support” of Donald Trump, urging them to reflect on how their endorsement of the president relates to their faith. Paul Bayes, the bishop of Liverpool, said “self-styled evangelicals” risked bringing the word evangelical into disrepute, and added there was no justification for Christians contradicting God’s teaching to protect the poor and the weak.
Wait....wasn’t the CofE created literally only so Henry VIII could get divorced?
Collusion, cover-up and child abuse in the Church of England
As the British Empire expanded, British colonists and colonial administrators took the established church doctrines and practices together with ordained ministry and formed overseas branches of the Church of England. As they developed or, beginning with the United States of America, became sovereign or independent states, many of their churches became separate organisationally but remained linked to the Church of England through the Anglican Communion.
When Nelson lost his arm (and returned to work half an hour later)
In July 1797 Nelson led a doomed assault on the Spanish island of Tenerife in which he was hit in the right arm by a musket ball shortly after stepping ashore. Bleeding heavily, he was taken back to HMS Theseus, where the injured limb was amputated. On 25 July the ship's surgeon, James Farquhar, wrote in his journal: "Compound fracture of the right arm by a musket ball passing thro a little above the elbow; an artery divided; the arm was immediately amputated." It is claimed that within 30 minutes, Nelson was again issuing orders to his men.
Petulant and jealous: Lord Nelson letters reveal his less noble side Correspondence to be sold by Sotheby’s shows his love for Emma Hamilton and sense of frustration when not in combat
He was one of Britain’s greatest military leaders but letters coming up for auction in the new year reveal a less noble side to Admiral Lord Nelson: petulant, jealous and complaining. Two of the letters are from Nelson to his lover Emma Hamilton, another is written by Hamilton and a fourth features the couple writing together. They shed fascinating light on Nelson, his palpable and obvious love for Hamilton, and how he was probably more at ease when he was fighting. “I’m afraid it is often the case that Nelson is not at his best when he is inactive,”
Toppling statues? Here’s why Nelson’s column should be next
While the US argues about whether to tear down monuments to the supporters of slavery, Britain still celebrates the shameful era
It is figures like Nelson who immediately spring to mind when I hear the latest news of confederate statues being pulled down in the US.

I like the Guardian on international news. I don't know which games they play nationally.
They took my BBC.
Also mostly for the international news, it's mindblowing how much you miss what is going on if you have only one side of one point of view.

The Guardian is just a newspaper with a particular left-leaning slant. They will pick up on stories that chime with their readership's world-view. Anti-Trump, pro EU, anti-Conservative, anti-national, "refugees welcome", and so on.
In the OPs case the article is just helps tell the story of Trump for a Guardian audience. It helps build on the "America is lost to the nutjobs" viewpoint.
Don't get too upset. Of all the newspapers the Guardian has one of the lowest circulations. It does have some plus sides and I used to read it, but it is a tad repetitive and panders to a metropolitan (London) leftist elite. You know, the people who complain about poverty from their top-of-the-range iPhone.
