Causing a stir about the Act of Settlement From Fr

Keywords: Religion / Belief

Joseph McMahon SIR Whether one is proor antimonarchy, surely no self respecting Catholic can be happy that their religion is demonised in the Act of Settlement. Now, when enlightened opinion is opposed to discrimination in all areas, there could not be a better time to insist in all manner of ways that discrimination against Catholics must be removed. Surely it would take an unusually determined hypocrite to deny it.

I should like to suggest to your readers one way: by using the device of petitioning the Prime Minister. This was recently brought to public notice with a petition on road charges. There is at the moment a petition calling for the repeal of the Act of Settlement. When I signed it the other week I brought the total up to 24.1f every Catholic in Britain with access to the intemet were to sign it, just think what a stir that would cause.

For anyone not familiar with the process, it is really very simple. You find the website "10 Downing Street" and follow directions for e-Petitions. The one I am referring to can be found by typing "Act of Settlement" in the search box.

Yours faithfully, JOSEPH McMAHON Falkirk
