I don't know about everyone else, but I have a lot of friends who consider themselves a part of this or that sect of Christianity, yet only attend church a few times a year. Along with infrequent attendance of services, these people often deviate from the standard doctrine in relation to sex, alcohol, drugs, profanity, and a myriad of other issues. Clearly, these people are not "living the life" of a true Christian. However, when faced with the idea of atheism or issues of church and state, they will vehemently defend their Christian beliefs. My question is why do these "C&E Christians" care so much about their religion only when controversial issues arise? If the C&Es really believe, why don't they follow these beliefs, or at least TRY more than a couple of days a year? If you really believed in a heaven and hell, why continue with behavior that you know will lead to hell?
