When they made Henry VIII the head of their church. Or rather, Henry made himself head of the church. That's a theocracy, an explicitly satanic one in Henry's case. This guy was as unfit a person to head a church as has ever walked the earth. They looted the monasteries and established a ruling class of ruthless satanic Freemasons. To this day they are the world's biggest problem.
A lot of Masonic writers claim Francis Bacon as their own; this is absolutely absurd, but not everything they say about Bacon is to be dismissed out of hand.
