Sir: Ann Widdecombe criticises the Church of England for "failure to concentrate on the spiritual, and having an eternal desire to interfere in politics" (report, 9 May). I can't believe she can have read the New Testament thoughtfully, for there every sphere of our lives attracts the scrutiny and comment of our Lord. Does she suppose he was crucified for his "spiritual" attitudes and comments?
