A New Way for Anglicans to be Received into the Roman Catholic Church? ...and What Cost Liberalism? from Ruth Gledhill of The Times

All the evidence from the US, and indeed England, is that churches that embrace wholeheartedly the liberal agenda fall into inexorable decline. Sometimes even pretty rapid decline.

That isn't meant to be a judgemental statement on liberalism. From a secular perspective, and just for the record, I myself endorse gay rights, women's rights and the rest.

But the facts speak for themselves. Liberalism in the Anglican Communion is proving to be a recipe for decline. If that's what the liberals want, then fine.
