What an Established Church Means for Britain September 12, 2013
The people of Great Britain have freedom of religion. Yet England also has an established church: the Anglican Church. Its head is a layperson - the reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II - but several of its bishops hold seats in the Parliament's House of Lords. And like the U.S. and much of Western Europe, the country is becoming more secular, making the future of the "established" church unclear.
