Writing to son Michael, Tolkien remarks on the current state of the Church and says that these need to be resolved in private, not with public comments.

He calls Charles Davis a 'thorn' and recounts a conversation he had with his doctor about Davis, where Tolkien compares him to John Wyclif and gives details about him and the way in which the church reacted to him.
