The UK to allow Satanic prayers in local government meetings

The UK unlike the USA retains a close connection between Church and State, for instance Christian Bishops vote and pass laws in the House of Lords, which impacts all the British citizens regardless of their outlook.  Recent attempts by atheists to kick Christian prayers out of local government meetings has resulted in Christians sponsoring a law through the UK Parliament to make it lawful for prayers to take place at the local government level.

One of the UK legislators in the Parliament, James Arbuthnot, publicly declared his atheism and his opposition to the law, pointing out that it would allow Satanists to legally insist on Satanic prayers in local government meetings.  Satanists in Britain currently do not enjoy a British version of the Satanic Temple, since it would be interesting to see Satanists insisting on Satanic prayers if the law is passed.
