History repeats itself. Or, an implication of a state-established church?

From Sweden:  

Sweden's Prime Minister says no priest working for the Church of Sweden should be allowed to refuse to wed same-sex couples. . . .  

Löfven, who is not religious himself, said the state church should an "open democratic church...that stands for equal rights of all people. People who love each other, regardless of their sex, should have the same right to marriage."
He favors changes in church law that would make a willingness to perform same-sex weddings a requirement for ordination.
 
Are there any John Fishers in waiting in Sweden, I wonder?
