Go Nick Clegg
The UK's deputy Prime Minister has said that he thinks that the Queen should be removed as the head of The Church of England. Apparently he thinks that Church and State should be separate.

Wow, I never thought I'd feel positive about Nick Clegg.

On a side note, I love how the Guardian's report on it says about how the monarch has been head of the CoE since the 1500s and hold the title "Defender of the Faith". That may all be true but they neglected to mention that Henry VIII was granted that title by the Pope when he was a staunch Catholic and got it for attacking Protestantism. It doesn't hold as much sway on promoting the links between the UK Government and the CoE when you add that the title is a Catholic one bestowed for attacking denominations that broke away from the Vatican, just like the CoE.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: Go Nick Clegg
Does he want to get rid of the Bishops from the House of Lords as well? I'd say that's the first step.

RE: Go Nick Clegg
I'd go further like we did a few years back and call for the removal of the head of the head of the church.

Unsure

(please prepare a room for me at the Tower)

I vaguely recall that it was changed to ""Defender of Faiths"... or did I just imagine that?

^^^^ Yes this. I see the Queen as merely a figure head. I say 'I see' as I am not really sure of whether she has any actual power, if she does I don't think she exercises it. But the Bishops...they have a say in everyone's life's and that annoys me.

But it is nice to hear a Politian say this...GO Nick!!

That explains why those countries are extremist, fundamentalist theocracies.
