From where I stand, more power to Westminster for having the right to live in the 1600's, just as science has the right to live in the twenty first century.

I never quite got this part. Why is it that religious loons are obsessed with living in the past? Muslims (many, not all) live in the 10th century. Christians seem determined to live in the 18th and 19th centuries (see, for example, the FLDS and Amish for two obvious examples...plus apparently the Westminster). What's the deal? Where in the Bible does it say you have to live 200 years (or more) behind the times? Where does it call for Colonial dress in that ridiculous tome?
