    No, William Laud was not right to believe in Divine Right, because each person on earth is a human. It is wrong to thing that one person is better than another human. Each human is created on the same playing field, and saying that some are better than others only leads to oppression. There is no Divine Right.

  • Divine Right is an inappropriate justification for Earthly law.

    Archbishop of Canterbury William Laud was known for his fervent support of King Charles II, for whom he served as advisor. He believed that Charles ruled by the will of God, and those who opposed him were sinful. The separation of church and state is an essential part of any functioning social system, and Laud's beliefs were harmful to Britain.
