Do people from Britain generally have an inferiority complex stemming from Elizabeth I?

Because Elizabeth I was queen and made everyone attend Protestant church services where they had to say things like, "we are miserable offenders" and, "there is no health in us"..... It was different for Catholics whose services were in Latin!

    No. It was Henry VIII.

    He established the Protestant religion and slaughtered anyone who went against it.

    I don't think so.  The majority of British people are completely ignorant of history, look to soap stars and footballers for standards and are more inferior than they think they are.

      ... also read the same thing happened in South Africa. They "self corrected" before apartheid ended, but all it did was keep it white still by ingratiating critics. Strange situation.

    Church of England isn't a Protestant denomination.

    The way life was back then, I would consider this a case of applying modern sensibility to people who had other things to worry about.
