Act of Supremacy (Repeal) Bill 2016
A Bill to repeal the Act of Supremacy 1558 and revoke Anglicanism as the state religion of England.

BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

1. Repeals and revocations
(1) The enactments referred to in the entirety of the Act of Supremacy 1558 are repealed and revoked.

2. Short title and commencement
(1) This Act may be cited as the Act of Supremacy (Repeal) Act 2016.
(2) This Act comes into force on the day on which it is passed.

Notes:
Spoiler:
Show

Recent studies have shown that almost 50% of the country is non-religious - that is, they do not follow any religion. In light of this, Anglicanism should not be the state religion when most of the country it applies to do not even follow said religion.

The Act of Supremacy is over four hundred years old and relies on an outdated view of the link between monarch and religion. This will have the impact of changing the state religion, but will not restrict the rights of those who are Anglican, nor will it restrict the Anglican Commune as a whole.

Meh

I expect, once again, lots of abstentions and failure.

Probably Aye.

The act it's repealing is rather hard to understand:/ especially because most of it has been repealed already so there is no context.

Probably Aye.
Might be difficult seeing as it's from 1588. I can give you a legislation.gov.uk link if you'd like.

No, I have no strong reason why I think the religious link should remain because I dislike the religious leaders getting involved in politics, however, I do not like the thought of the government not promoting Christmas, Easter, the 10 Commandments, traditional relationships, traditional family unit, and schools not doing their part to promote Christianity, or Catholicism. I feel this bill is the start of a slippery slope where the dominance of Christian values, and teaching in society starts to diminish by a a continual move to removing religion from life.

The country already has few Christian values. We don't put adulterers or homosexuals to death - in fact, being either is no longer (and rightly) a crime. No school outside of explicitly Christian schools teaches the importance of the Decalogue.

Seems like we can abandon socialism then!
