Ukraine is governed by an illegal military coup that overthrew the rightfully and legally elected government of Ukraine. Obama/hillary/ Mccain cabal was behind the illegal coup that raped democracy in Ukraine. It was a shameful interference with democracy that was sickening to watch. it is still oppressing the people there. Check it out.

Not Likely...the Anglican Church served Henry the VIII and Chubby Boy did just fine. He may have been hated by large numbers of his countrymen, be lived a long life and Church never seriously challenged The Crown’s domestic and foreign policy.
