Full emancipation of Roman Catholics

Comment 17th July 2010

There are a wide range of historical leftovers in our society and laws at every level relating back to penal times against Roman Catholics. While most are dormant they irritate. They range from arcane rules against heraldry for Catholic bishops to who the sovereign can marry. I think also much nonsense is generated on the subject so I would like to see a thorough review exercise of just what still lies on the statute books.

Why does this matter?

I think in a country where our diplomatic service can make offensive memos about a Papal visit it does illustrate how there is a discrimination which is still live. This process would undermine that kind of sneering with the same energy we protect other groups
