The Telegraph breaks 500 year old news

 "Sorry, but King Henry says your religion, 
which until very recently was King Henry's religion,
as well as our religion,
as it had been for 9 centuries,
is alien and un-English"

Now that no one cares anymore, the English newspaper the Telegraph informs its readers that the Protestant Reformation in England was an unpopular, top-down affair, a sort of religious coup d'etat, which succeeded through violence, bribery and a steady issue of government lies, the Catholic church in England having been a vibrant and very popular institution until Henry VIII and his ministers determined they needed to destroy it for their own purposes. 

Well, better late than never.
