    Explanation
    All of the options provided in the question are examples of special protection or privilege that humanists and secularists believe should not happen. The first option, the Queen being the Head of State and Supreme Governor of the Church of England, suggests a close connection between the monarchy and a specific religious institution, which goes against the principle of separation of church and state. The second option, the presence of Anglican bishops in the House of Lords, grants religious representatives a privileged position in the legislative process, which humanists and secularists argue is unfair and undemocratic. The third and fourth options highlight the influence of religious groups in advising and making decisions for the government and the state, which humanists and secularists believe should be based on secular and rational considerations rather than religious beliefs.
