The Church of England has abolished the Devil. Good idea, I say, and about time. Let's hope that Lucifer goes along with this arrangement, although you have to have some sympathy for the sad lad, being abolished must be painful.
But seriously, it's a good idea. I don't thnk many people believed in Beelzebub, so when the Church asks you “Do you reject the Devil" you don't have to pretend any more, and say "No such thing" which isn't quite the same as rejecting him.
But I think they should go further. There's a whole bunch of imaginary and invisible friends that they could abolish. If they can replace "reject The Devil" with "reject evil", (which us atheists can certainly go along with) then surely they could also replace all references to "god" with "goodness"?
But what about Hell? Who's in charge there now?
