Repeal of anti-Catholic legislation

I propose that the Act of Settlement 1700 (c.2) is amended to remove the anti-Catholic elements of s.1, amendment of s.2 to remove the ban on Roman Catholics taking the throne (and corresponding amendments of the Coranation Oath to remove the need to uphold the Protestant line) and amendment of s.3 to remove the requirement for the monarch to be in communion with the Church of England.

Why is this idea important?

Repeal Anti-Papal Act

Contained in the Statute Book is the Papal Jurisdiction Act 1560. ( http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/content.aspx?activeTextDocId=1519038 )

The Act explains that should any Scotsman become Bishop of Rome then he would be automatically banished from Scotland and any public office or titles he held would be removed from him. 

I have contacted the Statute Office, and my former local MP (Willie Rennie) in relation to this act and both have concluded it is still enforce, and nothing can be done about it. This act must be repealed in respect of the rights of Britain's Catholic citizens.
