As part of his enthronement ritual, Japan's new emperor will have an overnight dinner date with the sun goddess Amaterasu. Many Japanese are appalled by this breach of separation of religion and state under Japan's postwar constitution. Others are wondering what the Emperor will actually do with Amaterasu during his overnight visit. The government is saying it's just dinner, but there will be a bed in the room.
Whatever constitutions say, every monarch in the world is a religious figure. The sooner we get rid of this superstitious medieval nonsense the better.
