Yes I stand corrected on the status of the Church of England....however let us not forget the sectarian violence over many years in northern Ireland which took such a heavy toll in lives lost---all in the name of whether protestantism (ie the Unionist side) or catholicism (ie the nationalist side)should be the dominant power in Northern Ireland. Thankfully the current power sharing arrangements appear to hold and are an example of what can be achieved if both sides are committed to resolve a dispute. There are lessons here too for Israel/Palestine.
