FORMER ANGLICAN LEADER CALLS DIANA FALSE GODDESS

          LONDON (CWNews.com) - The former archbishop of Canterbury called the late Princess Diana a "false goddess" leading Britain astray, The Sunday Times newspaper reported.

          Lord Coggan told the newspaper that the national obsession with the princess, who died in a car accident nearly a year ago, has turned Britain into a godless nation. "Along came this false goddess and filled the gap for a time," said the former archbishop. "The British people identified with someone who had pretty loose morals and certainly loose sexual morals."

          Lord Coggan was the spiritual leader of the Anglican church from 1974 to 1980.
