Re: It's hard to modify Constitutions
Why do your tax dollars support the church of England?
Because in the UK there is no claimed separation of church and stste.
Why can the monarch of your country not be Catholic?
The Act of Settlement is an Act of the Parliament of England that was passed in 1701[2] to settle the succession to the English and Irish crowns and thrones on the Electress Sophia of Hanover (a granddaughter of James VI of Scotland and I of England) and her non-Roman Catholic heirs.

Why do you even have a fucking monarch?
Recent polls show that around 70—80% of the British public support the continuation of the monarchy

Why with less than 3% of the UK being black are they 15% of your prison population?
that's an entire thread, or even discussion board all of its own
Why all the anti-Catholic bigotry? You and many of your countrymen sound just like Faith
apart from the institutional bars on catholic monarchs (which is arcaic and hardly representative of the population), I'm not aware of any anti catholic bigotry.
