RE: Catholic Penal Laws
Yup. They called them "Papists" back then.

There is a roleplaying game called "Witch Hunter: The Invisible World" which I write for. It takes place in a horrific alternate 17th century where the Renaissance was mitigated somewhat and the forces of the devil are all too real. I've had to do all sorts of fantastic research to write for this, and the attitudes of religious toward each other is some of the most interesting.

Christians and Muslims, for the most part, had a tenuous but diplomatic relationship. The Crusades were long over. The Muslims had their part of the world, the Christians had their part of the world, but merchants and diplomats would cross over, and they were generally fine with each other. Dust-ups between them were political rather than religious.

On the other hand, Christianity turned on itself. Massachusetts was downright oppressive toward Catholics. France was driving out Protestants. England was driving out whomever the king wasn't at that particular time.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

Muslims don't have any ancient claims in Ireland.

Amazing how different things seem when you include historical context, isn't it?

As the article points out, English suppession of Ireland is older than Anglicism. It was not originally a religious issue. Religion is often used as a banner to rally the troops, so to speak. But it is rarely the original cause of problems. Good old greed and lust for power don't need religion to exist. They just use it to further their aims.

That's horrible!

How does the Catholic Church view all of that now?

The same way a Catholics in 2009 views Pro-Abortion-Advocates
(There is no difference between burning a Witch at the stake, or Aborting a Baby, or killing your Parents for their money)

In 2009 based on penal laws it is still illegal for British Royalty to marry a Catholic based on laws passed in 1701

British Royalty in 2009 can marry a Muslim,Hindu,Atheist - but not a Catholic

British Royalty in 2009 can marry a Muslim,Hindu,Atheist - but not a Catholic

The 1701 legislation, introduced to ensure the Protestant succession to the British throne, enshrined discriminatory anti-Catholic measures into British law. It helped lead to the union of England and Wales with Scotland, and its measures apply throughout the Commonwealth.

Under one of its provisions, the heir to the throne can become monarch if he marries a Scientologist, Muslim, Buddhist, Moonie or even a Satanist, but not if he or she marries a Roman Catholic.
