Repeal the Act of Supremacy and disestablish the church

Comment 6th July 2010

The 1558 Act of Supremacy gives the Church unprecedented powers within the State. This should cease and the Church can stand on it's own feet.

I have no problem  with the monarch being head of a church but the power of the Church, through inane limitations on my consumption of the special Lord's Days … (ie Sunday Trading, Easter, Christmas) .

Easily remove it and let it stand on it's own feet, have it as a preferred religion but not an institutional one.

Why does this matter?

This underpins civil liberties, the Church plays no part in MY life so this is a personal (i would say crusade but that has religious overtones) plea to just remove the power the Church has and let belief become a private matter for individuals.
