    I think your understanding of the Anglican church is flawed. You absolutely do have to sign on to specific doctrines. Every baptised member of the Anglican church must assent to their baptismal oath prior to receiving the sacrament. There is room for diversity of course but not in away that goes into the realm of heresy and denial of the articles of faith.

    You see, the problem for the cultural relativist is that to make his/her views acceptable, first the Bible must be denigrated, and then it must be denied that anything specific teaching or doctrine must be believed in order to be a member of any certain church, or even to call oneself a Christian.

    Thus, we have people like Spong who denies the central doctrine of the bodily resurrection, the one doctrine which differentiates Christianity from every other religion, and yet he can call himself a Christian and even be a bishop in a "Christian" church.
