Hrm. The reason he objects to Darwin is because
|his presence on the 10-pound note is an inappropriate endorsement of that materialist religion and its related anti-religious ferment.|
The Queen is also (as he points out) on the £10 note, as she is on all British currency.
The Queen has amongst her titles "Supreme Governor of the Church of England" and "Defender of the Faith" - the latter, ironically, was granted to Henry VIII by Pope Leo XI, and refers to the Catholic Faith. All British coins bear the legend "Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor" ("Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen and defender of the faith"), or some abbreviation thereof.
Does that cancel out the anti-religious sentiment of having the picture of a divinity student who became an avowed agnostic and was buried in Westminster Abbey on one of the notes?
I think maybe it does.
