Queen to be Ousted as Church Head?

Queen Elizabeth II may be ousted as the ceremonial head of the Church of England.

With growing calls for separation of church and state in England, Williams’ comment has gained support in Parliament, with pressure coming from the Labour party to “disestablish” the Anglican Church.
