I'd rather say those things are of no consequence. We must be careful not to stare too closely at the words of the matter, but the reality of the matter.

Is it of any importance that the queen is the head of the anglican church? No, it isn't; she has no power whatsoever to neither dictate canon, nor government policy.

I worry very little about the bishops on the House of Lords as well. I find it much more bothersome that the election process for a number of the seats basically comes down to them being too much of a bother in the House of Commons so they have to be kicked upstairs.

Ceremony is one thing. Legislation is a whole nother kettle of fish.
