The Red Vicar of Thaxted Conrad Noel wrote this polemic in 1929. We publish it here for several reasons: One is that our longer-than-normal time between issues is regrettable and we want to give you some Content(TM). Another is this piece addresses the historical ignorance of some Anglicans who fancifully suppose that "wokeness" is some kind of modern American invention that has infected polite English theology. In point of fact Anglicans from the bishop Charles Gore to the Reverend Noel here, viciously attacked the British empire and its imperialist adventures overseas. Please share!
