Charles just does not care

Reader comment on item: Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: Bonnie Prince Charlie: Keeper of the Faith?

Submitted by Terry (United States), Apr 17, 2007 at 17:42

I have read a lot of the posts on this topic, and they all seem to skirt round the real problem. Our so called Prince Charles has not converted to Islam. However he has openly stated that he wants his title if and when he becomes King to be defender of faith, rather than defender of the faith. That one missing word 'the' says it all.

As long as he has the top job, then who gives a damn what the prevailing religion of the country is? Certainly not organic Charles. That is the real reason he panders to it. I suppose he has a point in a way.

Henry the Eigth began his rule as Roman Catholic, spat his dummy out and founded the C. of E. because the Pope would not grant him a divorce. So although Charlie is a Windsor, and not a Tudor like Henry, it seems that he too is prepared to embrace whatever suits at the time. Mind you, what can you expect from certainly one, of if not the most, dysfunctional family in Britain.
