ALL these acts of course disqualifies her see (b) from the Crown and affords Citizens the ability to absolve their allegiances from her.Yes I hear ya we are in an age of anti-discrimination Britain –not quite as NO NON CATHOLIC MONARCH gave the ROYAL ASSENT and the Prime Minister – Blair or Brown NEVER repealed it by following a Statue of Westminster – the Houses of Parliament cannot just undo it has to go round the commonwealth… .I say bring on the Royal Prince William! Although my MP favours a Republic!

K. Chesterton, former Anglicans converted to Catholicism, but he is quite bright. I attended one of his talks and was very impressed — as were my colleagues. He is excellent speaker and quite sharp.

I attended one of his talks and found him facinating, as did my colleagues. He is quite sharp!

It is certain to be a most gracious and productive meeting so far as these matters are concerned.

The Eccclesiastical Titles aof 1851 (which favors the Established Anglican Church) denies legal existence to territorial Catholic sees. That is, no Catholic diocese can have the same name as an Anglican diocese even though (according to recusant Catholics) those dioceses have been borrowed.For that reason, there is no Catholic bishop of London, only an Anglican. It’s would be illegal for Catholics to have one. Such is life for Catholics in England.

And the Queen should take appropriate care at all times. I fail to see, however, why Her Majesty should suspend the rules of international diplomacy for this or any other state visit.

But that still leaves two cardinals for Mario! :-)
