“I Charles do solemnly and sincerely in the presence of God profess, testify, and declare that I am a faithful Protestant and that I will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the Protestant succession to the Throne, uphold, and maintain the said enactments to the best of my powers according to law.”

“Do you believe in and will you faithfully strive for the eternal maintenance of white supremacy? …

According to the [1915] revived Klan’s new code, ‘only American citizens who believe in the tenets of the Christian religion and owe no allegiance of any degree or nature to any foreign government, nation, political institution, sect, people, or person are eligible.’ The foreign person referred to was, of course, the pope, the foreign government, the Vatican. [The KKK] had codified American anti-Catholicism.”

“The [1915] revived Klan…expressed the defensive reaction of white Protestants in small-town America who felt threatened by … the large-scale immigration of the previous decades that had changed the ethnic character of American society.”—

Notice the similarity between King Charles’ pledge and the KKK’s pledge to exclude Catholics … No moral difference between Protestant Supremacy and White Supremacy. All people of faith, and those of no faith, but of goodwill, must surely condemn these twin evils of the world—racism and sectarianism.

However, lest people, and especially Catholics, not fully understand the meaning of ‘Protestant succession to the Throne,’ King Charles’ very own website bluntly lays down the anti-Catholic law:’ “Parliament, under the Bill of Rights [1689]and the Act of Settlement [1701], also laid down various conditions which the Sovereign must meet. A Roman Catholic is specifically excluded from succession to the throne.”

The usual old canard given to excuse the anti-Catholic hatred and bigotry of the British constitution—that the Monarch cannot be Catholic because the Monarch is the Governor of the Anglican Church. That is not an excuse, but proof that Church and State should be separate, as in the First Amendment of the American Constitution.
