Toleration of bilge

As Zoe Williams writes, it does seem rather un-Christian for the Queen to refuse a mention of Prince Charles' new wife in Church prayers for the royal family:
I had this argument once with someone who said tolerating ambiguity was the sign of a civilised society. It shut me up for a bit. But here, as in so many cases, ambiguity is just another word for bilge. Tolerating bilge is the sign of a lazy society. They're skating along on the carapace of our sloth, this family. I'm sure that's not what the divine right of kings was supposed to be about.
