Only around a half of Britons trust the clergy to tell the truth and a
similar proportion think the Church of England does a bad job of
providing moral leadership, a poll showed on Sunday.
The survey by pollster YouGov commissioned by Britain’s Sunday Times
newspaper further showed that 69 percent of respondents thought the
Church of England, mother church of the world’s 80-million-strong
Anglican communion, was out of touch.
Forty percent of those polled said they did not trust priests, vicars
and other clergy to tell the truth, and overall doctors, teachers and
judges were rated as more trustworthy.
