Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829 and the Jews Relief Act 1858 make it an offence for Roman Catholics and Jews to advise Her Majesty on matters to do with ecclesiastical offices which is a disability not suffered by all other non Anglican religions.  We should either remove the disabilities or rewrite them in a way that includes all non-Anglicans.

Why is this idea important?

We should recongnize that Britain is more multicultural than ever and when trying to protect the estabilshed churches we should look beyond the treats of the past and word our laws in a way that does not discriminate unnessacerly on grounds of religon.
