Fun with the Royals

    I am not making this up
      -Dave Barry
Okay, let me see if I've got this straight:

The British monarch is the symbolic leader of the Church of England.
Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles in a civil ceremony because the Church of England he will eventually lead would not permit a religious ceremony.
The Church of England would not permit a religious ceremony because the couple are divorcees.
The Church of England was created by Henry VIII so he could get a divorce.
In creating the Church of England, the British monarchy severed ties with the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope.
Charles and Camilla posponed their wedding so that Charles could attend the funeral of the Pope.

We had been discussing this at lunch one day. I thought it was kind of funny....
