    So who so far has expressed support while opposing a few months ago?

    I thought you meant the people who wrote the last bill.

    The term regressive left applies almost solely to those on the left who are generally progressive but are unwilling to criticise illiberal practices of minority communites such as to not be seen as politically incorrect, racist etc.

    So given the emboldened part of your post, I'm inclined to think you share my distaste of this particular subset.

    They mean well, I wouldn't call them 'regressive'. I also am not one of those who decries 'political correctness' as I think those who do very often just want to be free to be openly bigoted. However I do agree that we need to actively tackle what you call the illiberal practices of minority communities and believe that, though not religious myself, that modern, 'liberal' religious traditions (such as Anglicanism to an extent) are often preferable to others.

    I mean, ultimately what's going to happen is the Tories are going to use their powerful whip to cause people who haven't even read the Bill to vote against it because of their myopic 'MUH TRADITIONS' dogma.

    And the socialists are going to use their kinky whip to cause people who haven't even read the bill to vote for it because of their myopic 'EVIL TRADITION' dogma.

    Tradition isn't evil. Tradition for tradition's sake is evil.

    Can't say many of us care much for tradition.

    I don't believe that there is any reason to remove the state religion, and with the monarch being the head of the Church, I think it would be ridiculous to so.

    Did you read the notes?

    With almost half the population being non-religious, it is patently absurd that the state religion is one which most of the population does not follow.

    It's not absurd, it's just you being petty. You aren't forced to follow the state religion, it's an integral part of the history of these isles and it should be left in place.

    Something being part of history isn't an argument for retaining it.

    The appeal to tradition is a well known fallacy.
