A Catholic Momarch

The possibility of amending the law so as to permit the Monarch to be or be married to a Catholic is in the news again so I refer those who are interested to my earlier post on the subject A Catholic Monarch ? The Act of Settlement 1701 and Myths about Catholics and the Monarchy

I must admit I find arguments about the rules for succession to the Monarchy which are based based on arguments about "Discrimination" ludicrous. It is perfectly logical to disagree with Monarchy as an institution but to say that you support the Monarchy but then to disagree with certain of the inheritance rules as discriminatory makes no sense at all. An Hereditary Monarchy is of its nature discriminatory
