A Romanist Attack On The Protestants Of Scotland

Composer James MacMillan, in a lecture to the Edinburgh Festival on Scottish Catholicism, has launched a venomous attack against the Protestants of the land of John Knox.
Professor Arthur Noble

In a concerted attempt to widen its field of assault, the Church of Rome and its agents are now intent on stirring up strife in Scotland. Composer James MacMillan, in a lecture to the Edinburgh Festival on Scottish Catholicism, has launched a venomous attack against the Protestants of the land of John Knox. [See, inter alia: "The bigotry that shames Scotland", The Independent, The Tuesday Review, August 10, 1999, p. 4.]

Accusing the Scots of "sour anti-Catholicism" and "religious bigotry", MacMillan employs all the familiar tactics and allegations common to the Romanist conspiracy against the Protestants and Unionists of Northern Ireland, where, he claims, only the bombs and bullets are seen as making the difference - conveniently forgetting that the bombs and bullets were instigated in Ulster by his own Church of Rome and the Pope's specially blessed crucifixes which he sent to the IRA hungerstrikers.

The strategy begins with inventing discrimination ("Catholics are not really full citizens"). Then you need to allege that it is "endemic" ("in the workplace, in the professions, in academia, in the media, in politics and in sport"). Add a persecution complex and intensify it to the point where you must speak in "hushed voices" when dining in public to avoid divulging your religion, lest you "suffer the consequences" of a "backlash". Next, you must blame the whole situation on Protestant "sectarianism" and the "extreme nature of our anti-Catholic past". Then you attack the country's constitution for its "Protestant Presbyterianism"; and finally, you recommend that it be changed to reflect the "genuinely pluralistic democracy" and "enriching multicultural pluralism" with which we should "move together into the next millennium".

MacMillan advocates a return to pre-Reformation times in Scotland. Is he ignorant of history, or, like his Church, attempting to cover it up? Is he suggesting a revival of the treachery of the Romanist Mary Queen of Scots (who had her husband murdered), or of the burning of Patrick Hamilton and the Reformation martyrs, so that the system of the Dark Ages can be restored?

Carefully avoiding a description of those times, MacMillan overlooks the persecution of the Protestant martyrs by the Church of Rome which hunted and pursued them like wild beasts and forced them to hide in dens and caves - destitute, tormented and afflicted - only to be bludgeoned or burned to death because they refused to bow the knee to Popery. He makes no reference to George Wishart, the fire of whose martyrdom cast its light all over Scotland and prepared the way for Scottish liberty. He bypasses the story of Wishart's much-loved friend John Knox, who lopped off the branches of the apostate Church of Rome, struck at its very roots, and dragged Scotland from gloom and superstition into the enlightenment of the Reformation.

Confined for two years on a Papist French galley, Knox and his fellow-prisoners resisted every means deployed against them to force them to renounce their Protestant faith. Refusing to kiss a large image of the Virgin, he threw it into the sea and said: "Let our lady save herself; she is light enough; let her learn to swim!" No wonder that Mary Queen of Scots (whom he faithfully admonished) declared that she feared Knox's prayers more than a regiment of soldiers!

These are no doubt fine examples of what we might expect from MacMillan's so-called "enriching multicultural pluralism", which expresses itself in Northern Ireland through ethnic cleansing of Protestants and intrigue to stop them from walking home from church on the Queen's Highway. In Vatican terminology, the term really means its exact opposite - Papal tyranny.

Is it not also revealing that, having preached non-sectarianism, MacMillan then attacks the press for championing a non-sectarian system of education which would do away with church schools? He himself, of course, and his views, are a typical product of those schools. Their existence ensures that the Church of Rome can continue to exercise her sectarianism, a right which she claims through her so-called 'infalliblity'. Throughout her history she has used her sectarian education system to brainwash her adherents into accepting her boasted 'infallible' authority. She has proclaimed in her schools the lawfulness of persecution - a proclamation never repealed to this day, when it is only through lack of power, not of will, that she cannot openly perform the atrocities of the past.

Meanwhile, whither Scotland - a return to the mediaevalism of Mary Queen of Scots, or a revival of the Biblical enlightenment of John Knox?
