    I wonder how many other ridiculous laws are on the English books.

    Good grief I could be in trouble if I went to England with my modern interpretation of the scriptures. They might spank my butt. LOL

    I know some Anglican priests and bishops that could be in trouble as well. oooo that smarts.

    Shalom

    Yah, but England isn't one of those countries centered around civil rights. As long as the Queen is also the Head of the Church of England, England is theoretically a theocracy (although it may not be enforced).

    Does this justify the Muslim reaction? On the contrary, it just shows English laws are just as antiquated.

    Do we really need Jerry? Should we protest?

    I didn't offer it as justification, I offered it as established and ongoing precedent.

    We're a Constitutional Monarchy, not a Theocracy.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    But what else is a state where the head of the state is also the head of the church?

    In this case, a Constitutional Monarchy. There are textbooks on the subject.

    I'm surprised you're surprised about religion and its tendency to react strongly to criticism.

    You're beating about the bush, Spot. A theocracy does not need to be proclaimed officially in order to exist. Of course, I don't believe England is a true theocracy, but I do find it unsettling that the separation between church and state is blurry.

    I think he should go back into politics myself. He'd be an ideal independent-ticket president of the USA.
