No to Popery!

I am disgusted that our prime minister is seeking to end the Act of Settlement and therefore free the heirs to our throne to marry Roman Catholics.

We are a Protestant nation with a Protestant nation with a Protestant heritage that we must defend.

I am particularly disgusted at the way our weak and incompetent prime minister is trying to curry favour with Rome and Catholic voters. Just look at how keen he is to have the Pope visit the country.

Hi Matthew,

I agree!

But then I would ... wouldn't I?

I had to write a thesis at Bible College in order to graduate. My proposition was that The 1689 Act of Settlement is a solid foundation for civil and religious liberty.

No one is saying that any member of the Royal Family cannot marry a RC - they are just saying that they cannot do so and take the British Crown.

Before the PC mob get in on the action, particularly from the RC side - let them consider that the Head of the Vatican State cannot even marry! Cannot be a woman (notwithstanding the continued controversy over one Pope Joan) at all, at all and certainly cannot be a Protestant. Sometimes the pot calls the kettle black. And gets away with it.

I think it is an attempt by Gordon Brown to divert attention away from himself and his government which must go down as one of the worst in recent British History.

Roll on the next election!

Right: No to popery - AND: never forget what they did to our bretheren and forefathers in the faith - of wich they never repented until today:

ColinI thought you might share the sentiment.

Mae, good to see you again.

I am afraid with only 1 GB a month of internet, I can't view You Tube.

Hi Matthew,

ist's a video about the Inquisition. Millions died because if a so called "infallible church". As far as I know, the roman-catholic church has never repented or asked for forgivness for this terrible time. Until today, the rcc does not accept the protestant churches as churches. It was Ratzinger, before he became pope, who wrote a new enzyclica, in wich it's said, that there is only one true church, the rcc, and all other churches are only "churchlike fellowhships" (Enczyclica Dominus Iesus).
Haved you heard about the troules we had with Ratzinger here in the last months? After he accepted four Bishops of the ultratraditional Pius-Bretherenoder back into the rcc, it became public, that one of them was a well known holocaustdenier. While in Germany, Bishop Williamson, said in an TV-Interview, that "only 300.000 jews died under Hitler" and "there where no gas chambers"!
After german law, this was a criminal act. And he was fully aware of it, because he said so in this interview! After this became known by the media, the vatican said nothing. Days and days went by. Finally, our chancellor, Mrs. Merkel, God bless her, insisted publicly on a clear word of the vatican and than it came. Now, while Germany is only some moths away from its next election for a new government, the catholic bishops speak more and more against Mrs. Merkel, making politics against her, calling her a "protestant who don't understand", calling her to "excuse herself for her wrongdoing to the holy father" (!) A religious power with the want to rule the politics of another state. They haven't changed - and they will not.

Greetings,
MAE

You know, I actually cheered when the conclave chose Ratzinger to be pope.

The thought of an old-school, nasty, ultraconservative pope sounded much more fun than some trendy left-winger from Latin America.

He certainly has turned out to be a lot of fun.

Sermon titles relating to his elevation to whatever he claims to be include:

The Rat in the Vat
Beware of German Shepherds!


Mine was a lot more simple:

Does the Church need a Pope?

Yeah, one more time we germans are a fun to the whole word ... but what do we expect when we sow such "rat to the vat". :-) ;-)
Matthew, did you pray for this pope's election ....?

I don't recall doing so, but I might have done.

Too bad Her Majesty doesn't refuse the royal assent. I'm in the mood for a good row.

Solameanie, we are not at that stage yet. There a lot of hurdles before a bill goes through parliament.
