I think we can pretty safely say that The Church of England ceased to be Christian about 150 years ago, though if you talk to a lot of the Covenators in Scotland and Northern Ireland who were either murdered or had to flee to America (or were forcefully relocated to Australia) by Anglican authorities, there's been some question as to just how Christian England's official church has been going all the way back to the 17th century. Hearing that they've accepted this atheistic/materialist worldview isn't terribly surprising as they've largely clung to a temporal understanding of power as their substitute for papal tyranny.
I spent about 10 years believing in some modified version of Darwin's theories ( a consequence of being subjected to public schooling), and then I suddenly came to this epiphany that I didn't actually need to believe that I was descended from a retarded fish-frog in order to be a rational human being, I just simply had to think rationally. Since then, I've found greater joy in studying European history and reformed doctrine than trying to mentally wrap my head around the dozen or so bogus versions of abiogenesis that the scientific community passed off as the thing that will strike a death blow to those horrid Christian oppressors.
Maybe Dawkins will go back to being an Anglican now, and I'll continue to not give a hoot.
