Praying for the Soul of Queen Elizabeth, RIP, Calling Out Disgraceful SNP Supporter’s Jibeeditor
westminsterfly emailed the following report from The Express, saying, rightly, that “This guy should be called out by all decent Scots people” I agree. Extracts from the Express report follow:
“…shortly before the sad announcement [of the Queen’s death] Scottish independence supporter Sean Currie wrote in a post on Twitter: “The Queen dying in Scotland would be the perfect opportunity for the Scottish Government to unilaterally declare independence and refuse to return her body until the UK recognises it.”
He has since deleted the post, insisting it was nothing but a “political joke”. At Catholic Truth, we can see nothing funny at all in this alleged joke.
“Mr Currie is, according to his Twitter profile, a co-spokesperson for the Federation of Young European Greens.” Ends.
Our initial reports on the Queen’s failing health and subsequent death are posted on the previous thread here.
Please continue to pray for the soul of the deceased Queen and for the consolation of her family.
We should remember to pray, also, for King Charles as he begins his reign. May he find his inspiration in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
What is it with these people and how do they get away with it? If I’d publicly insulted Sean Currie, or these two black people who wrote evil ‘tweets’ about the Queen: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-11196401/Trevor-Sinclair-deletes-tweet-TalkSPORT-sack.html and https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11194501/Jeff-Bezos-slams-Carnegie-Mellon-professor-vile-tweet-ailing-Queen.html I’d be in jail by now for ‘hate crimes’. The latter tweet was particularly vicious – the product of a sick mind. It’s not enough that Twitter has removed these posts. These people should be prosecuted.
Well said. Those tweets are utterly beyond disgraceful. Where are the Tweet-Police now? If we’re going to have hate-crime legislation, then it has to be equally enforced, not just against people who refuse to pretend boys can become girls and vice versa.
Then there’s this news in The Guardian today – showing up the false claims of Meghan Markle about her children being denied royal titles. In line with protocol, on the death of the monarch, they are now “prince” and “princess” respectively (unless, of course, they decide to switch to the opposite biological gender. I’m sure Meghan and Harry wouldn’t object! )
PS Before anyone calls me out for an “inaccurate” headline – I know that Sean Currie is not a member of the SNP, he’s a Green (in more than one sense) but the Scottish Greens are hand-in-glove with the SNP on the matter of Scottish Independence – thus, Mr Currie is, by definition, an SNP supporter. So, memo to my critics, save your breath.
The tweets you posted, plus the one from Sean Currie, are dreadful and I agree with you that it’s not enough for Twitter to remove the posts. Other people are persecuted for a lot less, so these people should all receive a visit from the police. Either that or nobody should receive a visit from the police over tweets or other woke crimes.
Just like the two-tiered system of “justice” – one for the so-called elites and one for the peons who resist them – there is also a two-tiered system of decency. If you’re a leftist you can say or do anything you want about anyone who does not conform to your depravity, and suffer zero consequences.
If you’re a resistant peon, however, you get the fascist book thrown at you, frequently starting with an orchestrated smear campaign by Twitter bots and television teleprompter readers, all reading from the same script.
Not only that, but the smear campaign will use words that describe precisely the behavior of those doing the smearing.
“Two-tiered system of decency”. Spot on. And it seems you either are decent, or you’re not. I’ve frankly been shocked at some of the comments I’ve seen on the internet about Queen Elizabeth today – including a so-called Catholic website (not this one!). I mean, there are people I don’t particularly care for, and wouldn’t necessarily mourn their passing, but I’d keep my thoughts to myself. I wouldn’t go online and hope that their death was excruciatingly painful. It’s inhuman.
I don’t want to introduce a sour note into the discussion, and I have prayed for the soul of the Queen and for the new King, but I don’t think we should forget that she has signed very bad and immoral things, into law, especially the legalisation of abortion.
She can’t be blamed for that, really – she is a figurehead with no real authority. She could have done what the Belgian king did, I suppose, and abdicated for the day while the law was passed, but TBH, I think that was nothing but a gesture without meaning. He returned to the throne to reign over a country which murdered the unborn, so what was that one-day abdication all about, nothing more than helping him to calm his conscience.
I suppose these bad laws would have been forced through somehow, but it’s possible for the royals to make their views known and I remember talk of laws being touted about the royal finances – I am not sure if they were passed in the end, but I think the royals did lobby.
I think these are questions for another time, though – we should be praying for the deceased when the person denies, whether a queen or a pauper, since we all stand before the throne of God to answer for our lives, no matter our station in this life.
I am praying for the Queen and for her son and heir, the new King Charles III.
I just hope he now stops his environmental campaigning. We all know what he thinks by now, so I hope he settles into the role of a politically neutral monarch.
Donald Trump spoke to GB News a few hours ago.
Listening to so many stories and anecdotes about the Queen reminds me of my own encounter… Well, not with the Queen, with the small crowd gathered outside Crathie church near Balmoral Castle some years ago 😀
I lived in Aberdeen for five years, and so when I had visitors staying over I would sometimes take them for a drive to Balmoral. On one occasion, when there were members of the royal family at the castle, and thus they would attend the Presbyterian Crathie church on Sunday, I took a visiting friend to see if we could catch a glimpse of the royals outside the church, arriving and/or departing. We did – we saw a few, including Princess Diana. However, we didn’t get to speak to any of them.
The fun for us came during a short conversation with some Americans in the crowd, who asked how far it was from London to Crathie church. When we said it was around 500 miles one way from London to Scotland, one of them looked astonished and said: “Goodness – that’s a long way. Do they come here every Sunday for church?” 😀
Scotland seems to be way ahead of the rest of the world in public anti-Queen Elizabeth rants: As well as Sean Currie, just noticed these two: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11196825/Outrage-Scottish-comedian-Kevin-Bridges-JOKES-Queens-death-stand-Glasgow.html and https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11197165/Mob-pelt-eggs-ketchup-fish-chip-shop-anti-monarchist-owner-celebrating-Queens-death.html
Those are dreadful anti-Queen Elizabeth rants, as you say. But beware of tarring all Scots with the same brush. It’s noteworthy, surely, that there was strong fightback from other Scots – to the point where the nasty fish & chip shop woman had to be escorted off the premises by the police.
The response of the audience in the Kevin Bridges show is totally disgraceful and I hope the commentators on Twitter are correct in assessing that this will prove to be the end of his career. I have only seen his face “somewhere” – don’t remember seeing him “perform” on any TV show and judging by his performance in that video clip, I wouldn’t spend a halfpenny on a ticket to any show in which he features. Not in a trillion years. “Unfunny”? You got that right!
It’s sad to have to say this, but Scots “comics” seem unable to finish a sentence, whether funny or unfunny, without the F word or other bad language. I’d love to know what gives them the idea that this makes their jokes funny, because it definitely has the opposite effect as far as I’m concerned.
In short, allow me to apologise, most sincerely, for the crude, ignorant and totally unacceptable behaviour of any and all Scots who insult the Queen and her memory, as we all commemorate her passing.
No need for YOU to apologise – I know where you’re coming from. I’d never tar all Scottish people with the same brush. Goodness, how long have I been friends with you and another Scottish Catholic we both know well, and other Scottish friends I have that you don’t know. It’s just that the two most vociferous ‘communities’ that have been reported as making the most disturbing public attacks today about Queen Elizabeth II RIP have been (a) Scottish, and (b) Black. God bless the people who gave that Scottish fish & chip shop owner a hard time. It will be very interesting to note if she (a) publicly apologises for her behaviour, and (b) if she doesn’t, if the local community boycott her or not. We’ll see. As for the ‘black community’ – anyone with any sense knows that ANY criticism of their behaviour, however valid or truthful, is off the Richter-scale in terms of unacceptability these days.
You have other Scottish friends that I don’t know…?
Listen, I have character defects and I’m not afraid to use them so…. spill. I want names, addresses, dates of birth… And I want them before you even READ this!
I personally as i have said yesterday have no Love for the Monarchy, but i liked the Queen as a Person. And we prayed for Her Soul at last nights T.L.M as we should have .
As for Her signing Abortion Laws Etc She was only a figure head and these laws would have been passed anyhow. What we should have been more concerned about ,when Laws against Gods Laws were being passed, is where were our Catholic Hierarchy. As for Charles , He is a fully paid up member of the N.W.O. mob and the Build Back Better garbage. Bridges can be summed up in one sentence on one show that He done i quote ” I was born in Clydebank and was brought up a Catholic ,but now ,well i dont give a F***K ” I was personally disgusted by Him when He said that. Of course if you come from Scotland and have any Principles ,certainly Catholic ones you can probably say goodbye to a Media Career. But Bridges is just another Judas among many .Plenty of money but not an ounce of decency .
I hope this link, with short, embedded video clip reassures you that not all Scots are like that chip shop wummin and her ilk…
It’s worth recalling on this sad occasion the story of Padre Pio’s prayers for the late queen’s grandfather, King George V. It is reputed that Padre Pio asked a number of people to join with him in prayer for the British king, who, said the saint, was about to appear before the tribunal of God. At the time, Buckingham Palace had issued a statement to the effect that the king was ill but that there was no cause for concern. He died the next day, January 20, 1936.
I always wondered why Padre Pio expressly asked for prayers for this particular monarch, then I discovered what I think may have been the reason for that singular grace.
Until the accession of George, every monarch for 200 years had been obliged to recite the same ‘Accession Declaration’ before Parliament. George refused to recite it because of its anti-Catholic wording. One paragraph in particular was a statement deploring Catholic belief in the Mass and Transubstantiation. The Declaration was subsequently altered in 1910 to exclude this offensive passage, all thanks to this good king. I believe Our Lord rewarded him for this at the end of his life.
We must now pray for the repose of the soul of Queen Elizabeth II, a dutiful monarch for 70 years. None of us knows the destiny of any soul but it does worry me that Her Majesty signed both the Abortion Act and “Gay Marriage” Act into law when, as a professed Christian, she should have been prepared to lose all earthly goods rather than transgress the divine and moral law. Still, we can only pray and commend her soul to God’s mercy.
I agree that we should also pray for King Charles; that Our Lord may guide his reign. By his association with the Davos clique and his once-expressed desire that the monarch should be named “Defender of Faiths” rather than “Defender of the Faith”, it’s certainly questionable that he has any serious religious convictions. A religiously indifferent monarch would be about the worst possible state of affairs for both him and the country, so he definitely needs prayers.
That’s a wonderful story about Padre Pio, just incredible.
I’m interested in what you say about the new King and his apparently not having any serious religious convictions, yet he sounds very much like he is conscious of his duty before God. So, maybe inheriting the crown is making him think more seriously about things.
It’s the tragedy of our time that so many who proclaim allegiance to Christianity can so easily speak of equality for other religions. This is the great blindness which has descended even on the Catholic hierarchy. Our Lord make it perfectly clear that unless a man be baptised in His name he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. St. Paul spoke equally clearly when declaring that the gods of the pagans are demons, yet here we have these professed Christians speaking of equality for religions and the King, as we know, anxious to change the Papal title accorded to Henry VIII before the latter’s apostasy, to read “defender of faiths”. So it’s perfectly clear that while these pan-Christians and religious syncretists proclaim adherence to the Christian faith, they actually don’t believe its tenets. In other words, their Christianity is more convenience than conviction.
Funny you should mention George V. I came across an article earlier this year claiming that he was murdered by an injection ordered by his physician (he was gravely ill at the time). I don’t remember where I saw this, but here is a Britannica article about the same thing:
You’re right about that. King George V was dying, but apparently not quickly enough. so his physician hastened his end. I don’t think that is disputed.
Maybe someone should gently remind His Majesty that Pope Leo X bestowed the title of “Defender of the Faith” upon his ancestor King Henry VIII because the King had written a treatise defending the seven Sacraments.
Afaik, none of the Successors of St. Peter from the 16th century to the present ever revoked that title.
So technically he can’t alter that title.
Even though she was the head of the Anglican denomination, at least she publicly acknowledged Our Lord Jesus Christ on various occasions.
Hopefully he will follow her example in that respect too.
The only thing that really irks me is that he has to publicly promise to uphold the Protestant religion. (The BBC just showed it on TV in Scotland.)
Also on YouTube, one of the videos on the coronation of the late Queen in 1953 showed her taking an oath to defend “Protestant Christianity”.
Most of all, he needs prayers.
May he be the instrument of Divine Providence in bringing back England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland back to the Catholic Faith.
England used to be called the “Dowry of Mary”. May it be so once again.
O Holy Martyrs of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, pray to God for the King and his subjects!
My deepest condolences to you, Madame Editor and all the CT family in the UK.
“The only thing that really irks me is that he has to publicly promise to uphold the Protestant religion. (The BBC just showed it on TV in Scotland.)”
Yes indeed! It is still very much forbidden for near royals to even consider marrying Catholics. In fact, I have heard that the appointment of Therese Coffey as the new deputy Prime Minister has caused a bit of a stir – because she is Catholic. Just another little reminder that behind all the rhetoric about Britain being a land of freedom and equality, the hand of Freemasonry controls the levers of power.
On another ‘Catholic’ website much is being made of the fact that Queen Elizabeth was Head of the Anglican Church, and that it’s wrong for Catholics to pray for those who have died apparently not in communion with the Catholic Church. I can’t believe people think like this, as no-one knows the state of a soul at the moment of death. No-one, except God, so no-one has the right to judge with absolute certainty that this or that person is in hell and no point in praying for them. I’d like anyone who thinks like this to know of two incidents – one involving the death of a Jewess – the mother of Ven Fr Hermann Cohen, and the other involving a man who committed suicide. Both incidents involved St Jean-Marie Baptiste Vianney (the Cure D’Ars). The story of Ven Fr Cohen’s mother can be found here:- http://papastronsay.blogspot.com/2011/10/text-of-letter-prophesied-to-father.html The other story can be found in Abbe Trochu’s classic book ‘The Cure D’Ars’ https://www.baronius.com/the-cure-dars.html A woman’s husband had committed suicide, and as far as I recall, was not a particularly observant Catholic. She went to Ars in a state of high distress, hoping to get a meeting with the saintly Cure, even though this was unlikely, because of the crowds. As she arrived, the Cure D’Ars approached her and although, humanly speaking, he couldn’t have known anything about it, told her not to worry because her husband was saved, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He had jumped off a bridge and before he hit the water, he had received the grace of final repentance through Her intercession. This was because of some small act he did during his life in honour of the Virgin. I’m not suggesting for one moment that all suicides and non-Catholics are saved, as that would be presumption. But we just never know.
Just to avoid any confusion arising from my comment above, I want to state that you are absolutely right to say that we cannot know the destiny of any soul and should therefore be willing, as Catholics, to pray for deceased non-Catholics. Having re-read my earlier post, it may have appeared as though I were sayng the opposite. The charity of God is absent from anyone who refuses to pray for any soul under any pretext.
Rest assured I never took it that way from your comment. I was referring to other comments I have seen on another website today. I apologise if you thought I was referring to what you had written. That was in no way the case. As for the other website . . .
I’m relieved. I wouldn’t have wanted to give the wrong impression at a time like this. I have seen some of those other comments you refer to and they are simply inhumane. God have mercy on people like these who seem to have not one ounce of charity in their souls and not one modicum of respect.
Athanasius i thoroughly agree with what you say especially of people who have not been Harmed in anyway by The Forces of The Crown . But again the Queen reigned over The Northern Ireland Troubles and so called Soldiers in Her name done immense Harm and Death. It is not for me to forgive those Soldiers who not only Murdered in The Queens name but stormed into Catholic Homes destroying them with glee against people who had no affiliation whatever to the Provincial I.R.A. They also of course took great pleasure in Harassing Women going to everyday Morning Mass. Especially the now disbanded but Hated Scottish Regiment The Black Watch .
We cannot begin for a minute to understand the terror which especially in the walking season was imposed on young families. Of course we know that the Royal Family suffered their own Heartache during the Troubles with the terrible Death of Lord Mountbatten and His family. Something that must have hurt the Queen and especially Charles in an unimaginable way . Maybe its a good thing that Football this week has been cancelled ,because honestly i couldnt see the Northern Irish supporters keeping a Minutes Silence ,which of course would have brought further trouble.
As with the death of any person, it’s not really appropriate – not “the time” – to raise controversial issues. As you say, the Queen suffered the loss of Mountbatten and was able, thereafter, to make a successful and seemingly very pleasant visit to the Republic, decked out in bright green finery, if my memory serves me correctly, so I think we should settle here for remembering what was good about her reign and, most importantly of all, praying for her soul. As a Catholic neighbour has just pointed out, the fact that this earthly Queen was taken to her Judgment on a Feast of the Queen of Heaven – 8 September, Nativity of Our Lady – has to have some significance and should give us hope for her eternal salvation.
I know we have touched on the concerns about her overseeing the evil legislation of abortion and same-sex “marriage” in the context of her position as a constitutional monarch, but I am reminded of a story I once read, where a great saint whose name escapes me at the moment, one of the Church Fathers, apparently said, speaking of the moment of death of great sinners, that it is as if God has his ear to the lips of that sinner, hoping for even a murmur of repentance. Such is the desire of Our Lord for the salvation of every soul. That always consoles me – and not just when I think of the death of the Queen 😀
After posting my response to FOOF above, I came across this video, querying the significance of the Queen passing away on the Feast of Our Lady’s birthday.
RIP Queen Elizabeth a gracious and dignified lady who lead an exceptional and exemplary life of public service. May she rest in peace Amen.
My prayers are with the King
For those who may have missed it – and for the record here – below, King Charles’ first address to the nations of the UK, broadcast at 6pm today…
Fun fact: The last king named Charles – Charles II – gave William Penn a land grant which established Pennsylvania (literally Penn’s Woods). Philadelphia was founded in 1681. Charles II died on Feb. 6, 1685.
So it’s over 300 years between Charles II and His Majesty King Charles III.
I found the Kings first address very measured, poignant and one of understated dignity. The final prayerful epitaph to his mother was a beautiful conclusion to the memory of his mother.
I agree – I think he is genuinely sad at the loss of his mother and his address to the nation was just beautiful.
American commentator, Tucker Carlson, hits back at those who are attacking the Queen…
I keep hearing the TV presenters remark that King Charles is “Defender of the Faith” but they don’t seem to know that this title was given to Henry VIII by Pope Leo X in the 16th century because Henry wrote a criticism of Martin Luther – i.e., Henry wrote a pamphlet defending the seven sacraments against Luther’s attacks. Some people think St Thomas More either actually wrote it or advised the King, but whatever, it was because of that defence against the Protestant reformer that the Pope gave the title to Henry. It’s ironic to see that title being used to suggest that the “Faith” being defended is the Anglican religion. It’s very sad.
I watched the proclamation on TV and I thought that Charles looked a bit uncomfortable when he was having to affirm the Church of Scotland – it made me think about something I’d read years ago, that when he was Prince Charles, he had been in extended correspondence with Pope John Paul II. I have often wondered if the royals know from the history of the Reformation that they should be Catholics.
All the ceremonial is lovely, I have to say. I am already looking forward to the Coronation, LOL!
Lily, This article is interesting – and revealing: https://religionunplugged.com/news/2018/12/19/hrh-gets-religion-or-does-he
Interesting, revealing, and …. worrying.
Yes, I’ve noticed that as well, but I imagine Dr David Starkey, the well-known historian who has been commenting throughout (although I’ve missed most of his commentary) is sure to have mentioned that – I’ve heard him explaining it in the past.
I agree that the King’s first address to the nation was measured and dignified.
Neil Oliver has also spoken about the Queen and her long reign.
I had to took twice, or “take two” when I saw Neil Oliver in a shirt, tie and jacket. What IS the world coming to, I thought before correcting myself and saying “To WHAT is the world coming?” 😀
I guess we are not used to seeing Neil Oliver in a shirt, tie and jacket. It was fitting for him to be dressed in such a manner as he paid his respects to Queen Elizabeth.

I note that the Scottish fish and chip shop owner (mentioned above) who insulted the Queen’s memory has had her shop window smashed. The inevitable result of the failure of law enforcement agencies to rein in the Left (as pointed out by RCA Victor), so people resort to ‘rough justice’ when they feel they have no other option. I’m not condoning that, I’m just saying it’s inevitable. It will be interesting to see if she can continue trading there, or whether the point has been made and hopefully she would have learnt her lesson, and all can be forgiven and forgotten. Not so, I fear, the so-called ‘BAME community’, especially from the USA, who appear to have doubled down on their insults – the latest I read was by written by a black male who said he was looking forward to dancing on the Queen’s grave. As I said before – these people are inhuman.
Yes, I read that the chip shop wummin had her windows smashed in – it’s one of those occasions when I wish I knew how to insert images straight into the comment box, like I could do, easily, on the old blog before we had this upgrade. What would I post? Well, of course, as you say, we can’t encourage people to resort to “rough justice” so I’d have to look for an image where someone is eating fish and chips and crying…. Or maybe something like this 😀 only a bigger version 😀
The tribute paid by the SNP leader, Ian Blackford, in the Westminster Parliament, is pleasantly positive – he refers to the Queen as “Queen of Scots”.
This is very interesting – the number of voices of dissent against the lockdowns etc are increasing…
Dear Madame Editor,
Did you, Athanasius or any of the CT family get to see in person the procession with the Queen’s coffin ?
The BBC showed the Crown of Scotland on her coffin. Does the King/Queen wear the Crown of Scotland when in Scotland ?
I read on Wikipedia that St. Giles cathedral, like many churches in the UK, was originally Catholic.
St. Andrew, St. Giles, St. Margaret and all the saints of Scotland, pray that Scotland returns to the Catholic Faith !
Margaret USA 🇺🇸
Btw, One Peter Five (1P5) posted this earlier: https://onepeterfive.com/british-commonwealth-catholics-protestant-monarch/
This is a good response to all the idiots who malign the memory of the late Queen.
Somewhat late in the day, I thought I’d post this Ave Maria in honour of Our Lady, this being the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary… As the Queen’s body will soon be leaving Scotland, today being her last day on Scottish soil, we might ask for Our Lady’s special protection for her soul. Ave Maria!
After some nice speeches from Scots dignitaries today, one idiot in the crowd (in Edinburgh) called out to insult Prince Andrew and had to be dragged away by the cops. There has to be one.
He’s one of those who will take the high and mighty road to condemn the prince for his sins but will support the permissive society in general, and even the Scottish Government allowing kids to change gender as young as four. They are truly mixed-up people.
Reading the comment from Athanasius about King George`s death being “hastened” makes me think
how convenient it was for them that she died in Scotland, which allowed all the extras that would have been missing had she died in London. I don`t normally go in for the conspiracy theories but I wouldn`t
put it past those in command to engineer things to suit their own agendas, to put it mildly.
I just wonder what damage has been done to the cause of Scottish independence (hopefully, a lot)
with all the support she, God rest her, got in Scotland.
I don`t normally go in for the conspiracy theories but…”
I’m relieved to see that “but” … Don’t knock the so-called conspiracy theorists – I used to do that until I noticed that they were right about almost everything! As coincidence would have it, I’ve just posted a thread on the topic! https://catholictruthscotland.com/2022/09/13/conspiracy-theorists-or-prophets/
I’m in the middle of watching the arrival of the Queen’s coffin in London and I noticed just after 7pm that in London it was getting dark, with the streetlights already on. Up here (Glasgow) it was still light and it’s still light right now at 8pm.
This is the joy of live TV, LOL! I hadn’t realised that we were light for so much later than in the south of England. I suppose I should have known. with the clocks changing twice a year!
The further North the clearer it gets. That`s the reason the Queen was in Balmoral: to save electricity.
Let’s hope this is somehow a misunderstanding…
I suspect it isn’t. The whole Royal Family – sadly, including the Queen RIP herself, Prince Philip RIP, the new King Charles and his son Prince William and (when it suits him and he’s not gas-guzzling in private jets, Prince Harry) are all heavily involved in the green / climate change movement. And as the King made clear during his first speech, although he wouldn’t be able to carry on with certain works, there will be others who he had entrusted to carry on what he had started, or words to that effect. So even if the King isn’t publicly seen to call the shots, he’ll be busy behind the scenes handing the ammunition to others, you can bank on it. They all need our prayers.
