Gerald Ford was an Anglican and the 38th President of the United States.

A Word of Comfort2.jpg
Credit: Dent William, fl. 1783-1793, publisher

The Test and Corporation Acts required membership in the Church of England for anyone seeking public office. This cartoon is a satire on the efforts of Charles James Fox to get those Acts repealed. In it, Joseph Priestley, preaching, speaks for the concerns of the clergy, stating their opposition to "Reynard and Associates" (Fox and others). Fox asks, "Pray, Doctor is there such a thing as a Devil?" to which Priestley responds with a resounding "NO." The Devil, standing amid flames, is about to skewer Priestley.

Charles Darwin's views on religion have been the subject of much interest. Even later in life, Darwin continued to play a leading part in the parish work of his local Anglican church. In 1879 he stated that he had never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God, and that generally "an Agnostic would be the more correct description of my state of mind."
