    Ok King Henry VIII used the Pope's refusal to grant him that annulment as an excuse
    however, the main reason was similar to US president's stance of not taking any directives
    from Europeans or whoever else takes Americans for granted in contemporary international politics.
    The Anglican Church's Communion which comprises of 40 churches worldwide (the American Episcopal
    Church is a part of it) represents more than 160 countries and over 80 million worshiper!
    Although not belonging to the Anglican Church I do appreciate their tremendous philanthropic
    work among the poor as well as their very clear stance in social matters such as the thread's topic!

    The Anglican Church has a clear position on divorce - they're okay with it.

    Good points all.

    I'm not an Anglican either but appreciate that clear stance too. And I think their traditional Christmas service is second to none.
