At this point they should abolish the royalty and the CoE in one fell swoop
Not to be rude, but what a foolish, ignorant statement.
The Church of England, like it or not, is England's largest bastion of Christianity left. Probably 1/3 of Church goers in England--and that would be CoE Church goers, are evangelical--in a society where less than 5% attend church. The CoE, as flawed as it is....(and yes, it is very flawed) is the "last best hope" for England.
Now, if by abolishing the CoE you mean, dis-establishment...that may well be a good thing. Part of the reason the CoE is as feckless as it is, is the Archbishop of Canterbury is appointed by Parliment...hence is a political appointment. This makes for the appointment of other bishops as well political...and vast amounts of political correctness ensue (very politely, of course).
As to abolishing the royalty--my ancestors saw to that here 230 years ago...
The republic is hardly any worse than a monarchy. It’s just as corrupt and moribund.
Having a monarch wouldn’t be much worse than the system we already have.
also, it will cause a lot of political tension as technically the Queen is not only Queen of England-Scotland-Wales-northern Ireland but also of Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc.
And the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are only joined by the Crown -- what happens to them?
At this point they should abolish the royalty
Monarchy is an entirely natural and human form of government. The rationalist hostility to it has almost always been driven by demogogues wishing to control nations by stripping them of their historical and cultural identity.
No Christian can be opposed to monarchy as a principle.
