This is a pleasant surprise! The Liberal Democrats putting forward a liberal democratic bill; after the monarchy debate I thought you all preferred "pomp and ceremony" over principles like the separation of church and state. It's an easy aye from me. We live in a society with many religions, the state should not be seen to promote one over the others, especially when they're all equally b*llocks. This is a nicely written bill as well.
What do you mean? The reason is quite simple: the state shouldn't promote one religion over others. I'm pretty certain the Libers submitted a bill to do the exact same thing at some point. I can sort of understand not agreeing with the reason, conservatives believe we should promote Christianity because we're a Christian country yadda yadda, but not seeing the reason is beyond me.
It should be the monarch's decision as to whether they sit as head of the church. Seeing as there is no complaint from the church about it, it can continue so long as the monarch wishes to hold such a role.
Britain well accepts faiths of other cultures, as clearly seen by the building of places of worship and acceptance of other religions in to British culture. However with the national religion being CofE, there is no need to remove it from parliament whatsoever.
