Top Anglican children's author converts to Rome

from The Observer:

A bestselling author and Anglican priest has launched an outspoken attack on the Church of England and revealed that he is converting to Catholicism.

GP Taylor, whose children's book Shadowmancer became an international bestseller and is being turned into a film, accused the church of sinking "into a liberal pit that was no earthly use and offered no hope, no love and no grace".

Writing in the Yorkshire Post, Taylor said the decision had been "heart-breaking". He concluded: "Like so many other Anglicans, I am at that place where I feel I must desert a sinking ship."
