    I think it's important to have institutions in a democracy that don't need to please the public such as the established church. The churches role is that it doesn't have to please anyone or the press and it can basically do what it wants.

    I dont think the established church is a good idea. In a democracy, why should the church be allowed to interfere with politics which effect everyone? Christian or not.

    I think the fact that it's an established church means that it HAS to please the public. If it doesn't then it will find itself eventually disestablished.

    Protestant denominations run the risk of turning into exclusionist sects. America is striven with them.
