So the Secular Society says : The society’s president Terry Sanderson, said: “The Church of England is arrogant to imagine it has an automatic right to foist its opinions upon a captive audience who have paid good money for a completely different experience”. 

So in cinemas we have captive audiences – that’s more or less true. 
So is it appropriate to have cinema captive audiences bombarded with advertisements about whiskey, Bourbon, and other frivolous advertisements.  
Yet prayer is looked as an offence. I am sorry but I pray and I do not think my praying is offensive. Maybe the secular society is saying that the Church of England is offensive. Or that religion is offensive. Religion can be offensive. And prayer does not have to be just about RELIGION. Prayer can be very SIMPLE not COMPLEX. 
Yes religion can be pompous without God. 
The Church of England has its right to FREE EXPRESSION even if it looks pompous and religious and gives off vanity. 
Priests living in palaces and walking around in expressive expensive robes of course is not about what Jesus taught. 
I mean do we have to kiss the hand of every Bishop?
Isaac Newton said “For every force there is an equal and opposite force”. 
So we have the secular society a force against religion. 
But prayer should not be religious, pompous, pretentious, complex. 
I don’t think people can object to PLAIN, SIMPLE, STRAIGHT, HONEST, Christianity. But sadly Christianity has become COMPLEX, BENT, DECEPTIVE, ABOUT MONEY, MATERIALISTIC.
Yours Sincerely; Lester John Murray.
