According to the BBC World News Tuesday, some in Britain are upset that Pope Benedict has spoken out against a bill that could potentially force churches to hire homosexuals. Their complaint? He is mixing religion and politics.
Well, first of all, if we're supposed to keep government and church hermetically sealed, then why is the government trying to tell the church what to do? But, more to the point, they apparently forgot that this is a country that has an established state church and which has bishops serving in the House of Lords.
