OK - forget the word pagan and get back to the point.

WAV -

What you have said about other cultures when applied to Christianity either implies....

Christianity does not originate in England - result of foreign cultural imperialism - hence by your definition not allowed

..or..

Christianity does not originate in England - result of foreign cultural imperialism - must become Anglicized to be allowed


If the former, then your being a practising Christian is a culturally corrupting influence and you should leave the country or abandon your beliefs to avoid spreading your foreign culture.

From what you say about a non-imperial Church of England it seems you are saying the latter applies. If so then logically anybody can come into the country with whatever culture as long as they adapt it to an Anglicized version. Given that the church defines its how it acts, those coming in would decide what qualified as an Anglicized version of their culture.
