Very true. Similarly, I've heard British fundies reciting things that only make sense in the context of having a First Amendment, and not at all in a country in which Christianity is the official religion.
Being a Christian does not imply holding Creationist beliefs.
I would imagine that British fundies have plenty of opportunity to feel that their viewpoint is suppressed in the UK. While it is true that the state religion is Christian, the state religion does not include fundamentalist beliefs such as a belief that the account of Creation or the Flood as described in Genesis is either the literal truth or the Bible is a lie. In fact it is highly likely that the population of the UK is as highly adverse to funding a non secular science education as they would be if they did have a first amendment.
Nobody wants crap nonsense taught as science to school aged children except Creationists.
