Welsh religious right wing

Although the religious right wing does not seem to be as powerful in the U.K. as it is here in the U.S.A., the U.K. does have a religous right wing.

In Wales, there's a new political party called the Welsh Christian Party, whose first big issue is to change the Welsh flag to get rid of the traditional dragon emblem, which, to these folks, symbolizes the Devil. See WELSH and SATANIC...

If you're interested in religious right wing in other countries as well you should look closer for present polish government. Maybe Poland is not so important on international political scene but there is much spicy news. I'm not sure how much of it is available in English.
Just to mention some more or less recent ideas:
- "Improving" of antiabortion law in a way to delete all exceptions where abortion was allowed.
- Making Jesus as the right king of Poland (sic!)
- Once again "small improvement" of paragraph to prohibit promotion of Satanism and homosexual way of life (understood as complete ban of any public friendly statements on that topics and throwing homosexuals out of areas where they could have contact with kids or teenagers).

Luckily those blatantly stupid and shocking attempts where fruitless (not counting the last one which is still in progress) but what is very disturbing that religious right wing has now more power than ever and no one is really sure if some of mentioned above “ideas” could not become finally horrible reality.
I think that you can find at least some English news about recent polish government actions. Below are examples I quickly googled:

Now one can consider if so common place right wing domination or growth of its importance in various countries at the same time is just freaky coincidence or it could be influence of conflict with Islamic extremists?
