The Act Of Settlement, where it refers to Roman Catholics (of the popish religion) is offensive, discriminatory and has no place in a 21st Century democracy.

In a country like the United Kingdom, with our equal opportunity and anti-racist laws, it is an embarrassment to have an act like this on our statute book. Try explaining it to a foreigner, and see the look of incredulity on their face.
