Four Decades of Deepening Royal Apostasy and Vatican Intrigue

The Romanization of the House of Windsor is something very few people understand; but it has very grave consequences.  Let it be clearly understood that in no sense is Anglicanism a true church; nor does the true Church of Christ need the protection of a country’s monarch; nor is all that is “Protestant” Christian; nor is the British monarch truly “the Defender of the Faith” or the head of a denomination of Christian churches.  The idea of a “national church”, ruled by a political sovereign, is entirely contrary to the New Testament.  Anglicanism is a corrupt, worldly, Popish system, a daughter of the Mother of Harlots (Rev. 17:5).  But it is certainly true that a country, knowing the awful nature of Popery, can and should pass laws forbidding any Papist to ascend the throne.  And there is no doubt whatsoever that this prohibition was a great blessing to true Christians in Britain ever since the Reformation, for it meant that no persecuting Papist could ascend the throne and wage war against true Christians.  The Vatican, of course, has always hated this prohibition.  And ever since the Reformation Rome has done its utmost to destroy the British throne, and to once again subjugate the people of that once-blessed land to the feet of the Roman pontiff.  What has happened to the British Royal Family over many decades is the culmination of centuries of Vatican intrigue, and this article, published in 1993, is extremely valuable for revealing Popery’s intrigues with regards to the British Royal Family.  Just how successful the Vatican has been can be seen in all that has transpired in Britain since 1993, politically and religiously.


“… And whereas it hath been found by experience that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant kingdom to be governed by a popish prince or by any king or queen marrying a papist… Every person who is or shall be reconciled to, or shall hold communion with, the See or Church of Rome, or shall profess the popish religion, or shall marry a papist shall be excluded and be for ever incapable to inherit, possess, or enjoy the crown or government of this Realm and Ireland… and in every such case the people of these realms shall be and are hereby released of their allegiance…”

…Act 1, William and Mary, cap.2.sec.8/9.  Bill of Rights and Act of Settlement, 1689 and 1701…



  In 1567, Pope Pius V sent two Jesuits (Parsons and Saunders) to England.  They contacted and stirred up the Roman Catholic minority in their opposition to Queen Elizabeth I.  Parsons and Saunders were executed, for being traitors not Roman Catholics (they faced a civil, not an ecclesiastical court), and are now official Vatican “saints” to whom deluded catholics “pray”!  Three years later, 3 May, Pope Pius V issued his “Damnatio et Excommunicatio Elizabethae Reginae Angliae”, which is self explanatory!  The decree added, “…and those who shall do the contrary, we do strike with the like sentence of Damnation…”  In 1580, Humphrey Ely arrived in Spain from England, seeking papal nuncio Sega.  He represented certain English noblemen, influenced by the two Jesuits, who desired the pope’s advice.  Would Pope Gregory XIII consider them sinful if they plotted to kill Queen Elizabeth?  The pope replied (the letter is in the Records Office in London, the Roman transcripts 77 to 105), “whosoever sends her out of the world… not only does not sin but gains merit.”  The letter to Ely ends: “…in case you have incurred any irregularity, the Pope bestows on you his holy benediction…” (Albert Close, Rome's Fight for the British Throne, p.69)  In April, the pope sent a message to the secret society in England led by Anthony Babington, encouraging his people and promising them protection and maintenance for the spies.  Four days later, twenty Jesuit priests left Rome for our shores.  Edmund Campion was one of the leaders.  At his eventual trial, it was proved he had “received money from the pope.” (ibid., p.94)  In 1583, plans were laid in “most Catholic” Spain for an invasion of the British Isles, but were shelved because of Spain’s internal problems.  Five years later, King Philip II of Spain sent the Armada to invade Queen Elizabeth’s Realm, and Pope Sixtus V promised a million ducats once success had been achieved.  Praise God, the cash was not required!  At the commencement of the 17th century (1605) a Roman Catholic gang, led by Robert Catesby, sought to assassinate King James I and members of his family.  Guido Fawkes was the “fall guy”!  The Gunpowder Plot failed.
