Like so many things given to Henry VIII, this title "Defender of the Faith" was given to one not worthy of the honor. Since, Henry was so keen to reject the just and God-given Authority of the True Church in Rome over his quaint little country, he should have manned-up and returned the title as well. Prince Charles should succeed in this return where his ancient, meglameniacal, STD infected, wife-killing, ancestor failed.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Dwight Eisenhower was no Harry S. Truman or Woodrow Wilson was he? Surprisingly, God doesn't seem to pick good Jews or Christians to lead this country. I would hope He will pick ones that respect the traditions of the USA and has a certain fondness for it. But then, God does the picking not I, and it is always according to His plan.

You know he got that title for defending Catholicism, before he split with it.
Jimmy .. Your right, God is allowing the usa to sink, mentally, emotionally and physically to an unregenerate religionist nation. Along with Canada..
Charles' 60th birthday celebration 'we are most amused comedy gala' wimbledon theatre-televised in the uk saturday evening.
Rowan Atkinson who certain 'christians' enjoy as a 'family' entertainer (Mr Bean)likes to do politically incorrect comedy and more particularly has for many years done nasty 'skits' about christianity and the Bible but never one about Allah or his prophet.
Atkinson performed his wicked 'comedy' vicar sketch the 'Amazing Jesus' before the Prince and millions of TV viewers. With much regret I give you the link for 'Amazing Jesus'
I suggest you only listen to the first lines and not all of it then wonder why the future head of the church of England or rather 'Defender of the Faith' has nothing to say in protest? Obviously true christians know the answer.
Then ask yourself what would be the results of Atkinson daring to make a similar comedy sketch about Islam and particularly in front of an Islamic Prince and Tv audience?
It will be interesting how many 'protests' are made in the UK to ITV and the Prince by 'concerned' and 'disgusted' christians.
BBC was also Boldly Blaspheming Christ having presented the Jerry Springer Opera to millions. What is virtuous on TV and do Christians even protest?
There is a series of lectures online right now concerning this very thing -- The Beamable Princes, parts 1 and 2, about 3 hours of lectures, by one Professor Walter Veith, an expert on the Catholic Whore of Babylon and the Reformation.
He explains why everybody around the world is making a treck to the pope to kiss his ring and bow before him. Fascinating, and frightening, series of lectures that covers the whole deal about Prince Charles, also the Queen, and the history of how this all came to pass, going back to the 1200s.
Prince Charles spoke of his "fond and special memories" of meeting the Pope in Rome and Britain in the 1980s.
"The Prince of Wales' wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles has been postponed until Saturday, to allow him to attend the Pope's funeral in Rome."
Charles like his mother is a traitor and is no faithful protestant. Both are friendly to the biggest criminal organization in the world the Papacy!
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
The Monarchs as part of the British law take an oath to uphold the law of God.
They ought to read about King Josiah in 2Kings chapter 22 and 23 to see an example of this in action.
"a person who is a Roman Catholic or marries a Roman Catholic ,is excluded from inheriting, possessing or enjoying the Crown, and in such case the people are absolved of their allegiance"
"every king or queen must make, subscribe and repeat.....that he or she is a faithful protestant, and will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the protestant succession to the throne, uphold and maintain those enactments to the best of his or her powers according to law"
May all who keep the commands of God, resist the beast that is being ridden by the whore!

While it is easy enough to say Charles is impious, note that he is also irrational. One cannot defend mutually contradictory propositions (e.g. those made by Islam & Christianity). Jesus is either the Christ, or He is not.
A past President articulated similar foolishness: "Our government makes no sense unless it is founded in a deeply felt[!] religious faith-and I don't care what it is." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
BTW, "Defender of the Faith" is a title given by a pope (to Henry VIII). Pardon my American lack of subtlety, but why Protestant monarchs also owned this title is a mystery to me, unless "the Faith" means anything the King believes (which would be a triviality).
