The Irish Catholic Church in Ireland and in the Irish Diaspora

When the english came they came as protestants l.jpg

when the English came, they came as protestants

  • Many people suffered, and many died, over many years, because they were Irish; and they died as Catholics. In some cases, the English offered special amnesties to Irish Catholics who would renounce their faith and become protestant. Naturally, the dishonor of any such agreement would not wash away; and the honor implicit in keeping the Irish Catholic faith was deep.

  • The beliefs that underlie the sort of strong anti-Catholicism once seen in Great Britain were summarized by William Blackstone (1723-1780) in his Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769):

    As to papists, what has been said of the Protestant dissenters would hold equally strong for a general toleration of them; provided their separation was founded only upon difference of opinion in religion, and their principles did not also extend to a subversion of the civil government. If once they could be brought to renounce the supremacy of the pope, they might quietly enjoy their seven sacraments, their purgatory, and auricular confession; their worship of relics and images; nay even their transubstantiation. But while they acknowledge a foreign power, superior to the sovereignty of the kingdom, they cannot complain if the laws of that kingdom will not treat them upon the footing of good subjects.
