link titleThe Paramilitary wing of the Church of England and thus Britain's equivalent of Iraq's Shia Militias. The most significant difference between the Shia Militias and the Church Army is that the Church Army rarely sets roadside IEDs or mortars security forces bases, whilst Shia Militias don't often sell tea, buns and newspapers to British soldiers. Otherwise though, they're exactly the same.
