    Nope, it is mostly done up for the children and most of them don't know what it's about. 90% of it is not religious now days.

    It's not all bad, Bishops being chucked out of the House of Lords is a bloody good idea.

    The fact that a secular society like Britain allows this jurassic remnant of theocracy to exist is beyond my comprehension skills.

    And quite frankly, the entire Upper House is a joke.

    I agree entirely, it's totally undemocratic and a remnant of the times when the aristocracy ruled absolutely. Here in Australia when we eventually sorted ourselves out and created a nation with a federal government we used the US model of the Senate for our upper house(also called the Senate). While our Senators aren't directly elected, they are elected and are not merely appointed as in the House of Lords.
