New Campaign Launched In The House Of Commons To Destroy The Williamite Revolution Settlement


The Revolution settlement which guarantees to all citizens their civil and religious liberties without fear of a Roman Catholic Monarch’s interference is under attack yet again.
Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley

Another Early Day Motion to this effect has been tabled by Kevin McNamara and his friends in the House of Commons on 11 April 2003.  It reads:

1018 ACT OF SETTLEMENT 1701

Mr Paul Tyler, Nick Harvey, Dr Vincent Cable, Mr Mike Hancock, Andrew George, Mr Kevin McNamara, Norman Baker:

That this House recognises that the Act of Settlement 1701 is widely accepted to be discriminatory and is arguably in breach of the Human Rights Act 1998: and urges the Government to give full urgent consideration to repealing it.

The motion utters the great lie that the Act of Settlement is discriminatory and in breach of the Human Rights Act 1998.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The Act is a Charter of Civil and religious Liberty for the subject and safeguards him or her from interference by the Monarch both in the Religious and Civil Spheres.  What it set out to do, it has done.  No other piece of legislation has lived up to its declared definition and objective.

It laid the axe at the root of the interference of the Pope to the governance of the United Kingdom and gave liberty to every British Citizen from an entanglement, which imprisoned the nation for centuries.  It was a triumph of Parliament against pope and king.  The Act was called an ‘Act of declaring the Rights and Liberties of the Subject and Settling the Succession of the Crown’.

Clause 9 is one of vital importance to our present throne -

‘And whereas it has been found by experience that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant Kingdom to be governed by a popish prince or by any King or Queen marrying a papist the said Lord spiritual and temporal and commons, do further pray that it be an act that all and every person and persons that is, are, or shall be reconciled to, or shall hold communion with the SEE of the CHURCH of Rome or profess the popish religion or shall marry a papist shall be excluded and be forever incapable to inherit, possess, to enjoy the crown & government of this realm in Ireland and the dominions thereunto belonging or any power, authority, or jurisdiction within the same and in all and every such case or cases the people of these realms shall be and hereby absolved of their allegiance; and the said Crown and Government shall from time to time descend to and be enjoyed by such a person or persons being PROTESTANTS as should have inherited and enjoyed the same, in case the said person or persons so reconciled, holding communion, or professing or marrying as aforesaid, were naturally dead.”

This Protestant Kingdom has learned!  What had it learned?  That the safety and welfare of this Protestant Kingdom was put in jeopardy by a Papist King or Queen or by any King or Queen marrying a papist.

They had learned that in the blood shed in Queen Mary, the Papist’s reign, (called in history the Bloody Mary) and in the bloodshed in King James II’s reign.

They had also learned that this Protestant Kingdom had been put in jeopardy by Charles 1 marrying a papist French Princess, Henrietta Maria, youngest daughter of Charles IV of France.  Henrietta planned to bring French soldiers into Gt. Britain using Ireland as the back door and so subvert the nation.

The freedom of Royalty to become Roman Catholic was not called into question but their freedom to keep the throne was.  The freedom of the subjects of this Kingdom not to be ruled by a monarch manipulated by Roman Priests was paramount.  This was not discrimination.  This was plain common sense and a charter of liberty for all British subjects.

It follows the practice of Rome itself.  The poor King of the Vatican is not allowed, under Vatican law, to marry any woman at all, Roman Catholic equally excluded, and if he dared to do so he forfeits his right to be King of the Vatican.

The signatories to this motion should start at the Vatican itself if discrimination is really being practised and human rights denied the Pope!

True Protestants call for civil and religious liberty for all, even the Pope himself!  As the Bible states, “let him marry and not burn”.

The battle of the Reformation has to be fought in every generation and this generation of ours cannot escape it.
