The monarchy is hereditary. Religion isn't. Saying the monarch must be an Anglican promotes the blatant lie that one's religion is inherited genetically.

It's a little hard for me to feel sympathy for someone born into such immense undeserved privilege, but I do a little bit, in the sense that they've had their philosophical upbringing twisted by being told that their religion is a matter of national duty.
