The Bishop's rant about the Magna Carta, the abolition of slavery, etc being the result of Christian values is just utter nonsense.

I have just come across this article in the Independent: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/no-secularism-please-were-british-6917549.html

A brief quote: What is staggering about the secularists is their arrogance and the shortness of their memories. The materialist utopianism of the Communists and Nazis is to blame for all the worst atrocities of the past century. Dawkins may appear to make sense, but it is incredible that we should be ready to pay serious attention to a prophet whose message is the same as those whose schemes led straight to the hells of the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Mao's Cultural Revolution and the Khmer Rouge.

That's just a sample of a long rant. It's blatant lies and ignorance. On and on and on.
