Bigotry Lingers On

English law still provides that a person cannot become head of state if s/he marries a Roman Catholic. We erroneously thought the law had been repealed. The Telegraph is pushing for its elimination. Excerpt:

"Only Roman Catholics are barred from marrying the monarch. Prince William or, for that matter, Zenouska Mowatt (37th in line to the throne) may wed a Zoroastrian or Scientologist without losing the right of succession, but not a member of a Church to which five million Britons belong."
