Petition Legislation to dis-establish the Church of England and remove any other privileges held by churches and faith groups
Historically the Church of England has enjoyed a highly privileged status in the UK and continues to access power and authority within what is now a secular state. Other faith groups do not have such extensive benefits within the state, and nor should they. This petition calls for the dis-establishment of the Church of England and the removal of any rights and privileges enjoyed by all churches and faith groups beyond those that apply to all individuals and charities.
