G. Will-ikers*
Found this snippet on a hero of mine and yon Dylan's here. Mr. Will always struck me as a plu-perfect Anglophillic Anglican.

Will is an Episcopalian who...has taken on religious institutions, including his own. In a 1979 column, Will lamented his denomination’s revision of its 16th-century Book of Common Prayer, and prophetically suggested: “Perhaps Christianity’s many revisers are, as a matter of fact, bringing Christianity into conformity with the spirit of the age. But I thought it was supposed to work the other way.”

Will, whose theology is orthodox, is an avid reader and quoter of C.S. Lewis, also an Anglican.

* -shamelessly stolen, though attributed at least, from sir Dylan!
