Any leader that is not elected by popular vote and with the approval of a freely elected government council is nothing more than a tyrant. Any leader that uses religion as a tool in governance is in violation of the basic principle of separation of church and state. Sic Semper Tyrannis.
This is why I say Lutheranism has a poor track record of supporting some of the most despicable things -- like imperialism, slavery, and segregation. Under this Lutheran king of Britain, we saw Britain's entrance into the imperial age. Conquest, rape, theft. He even had a war in his name -- King George's War. What a controlling and arrogant king.
