I don't like the Monarchy, and its my opinion that to call England a Christian country pretty much only benefits the Monarchy, as pointed out by the
OP the cat in the crown is supposed to be the head of Christianity on these shores. The arguments for it being tradition, however, irates me no end,
as its a fairly recent (in the grater scale of our Albion) that Christianity as we know it today was 'the religion of the people', and the arguments
of people wishing to 'Keep Britain British' make me and others laugh.
I wont go in to detail, I'll just say, Vikings, Saxons and Romans.
As the dissolution of the Monarchy is pretty much a pipe dream, as an Englishman I would welcome this step, firstly because its symbolic of the
'power' of the head honcho no longer fulfilling the traditional role as head of a religion used primarily in our past as justification for the people
oh so better than us, seeing as they have Gods' mandate, and secondly because the Muslims I know and are friends with would feel welcomed (as they
seem to like the monarchy, frick knows why).
BUT, I know most of the subjects in my lovely country would be very upset, some even angered, by this. As stated earlier, this Bishop must be grossly
disconnected from the common man to think this would fly. The royalists hate any perceived change in their (in my views rather ugly) traditions, and
the general consensus of most working class people I know is that Islam is a religion of terror and barbarism. If this were to go ahead, we may find
less people in support of the Monarchy (yay!) but also an even greater shift into racial and cultural divide (boo!).
Great post O.P, will watch this with interest, star for you for bringing this to our attention!
