King Charles III, “in the Presence of God”, Professes Himself to be “A Faithful Protestant”…Prayers!

Extract from the Coronation Oath…

“I, Charles, do solemnly and sincerely, in the  presence of God, profess, testify, declare, that I am a faithful Protestant, that I will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the Protestant succession to the throne, uphold and maintain the said enactments to the best of my powers according to law”…

Editor writes…

No ecumenical pretence that we are all “Christians”.  Isn’t the honesty contained in the Coronation Oath better than the fake “dialogue” of ecumenism?

At one time, I believe, Prince Charles was in regular correspondence with Pope John Paul II, so we might hope that he has some grasp of the truth about the claims of the Catholic Church.   Then, too, he must, surely, know the history of the Reformation and the origin of the title which he has inherited – Defender of the Faith.  We discussed that title here.

We ought to pray for the new King – as one commentator pointed out during the TV broadcast of the ceremony, he looked worried throughout the service.  Who knows what was going on in his mind… But, certainly, isn’t it true that those who know the truth about the claims of the one, true Church of Christ and yet remain outside, should be worried?

Before everything else, fidelity to the Church: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. Jesus did not found several churches, but one single Church.”  Pope John XXIII

    It seems to matter little to them that the monarchs in Britain where, until Henry VIII, Catholic servants of the Church and the Pope. 1000 years of Catholicism wiped out because Henry was an adulterer and a murderer. Adultery, it seems has come down the line along with the same apostasy from the true religion founded by Our Lord. It’s actually tragic. One day the monarchy in Britain will return to the fold. In the meantime, we look on with sadness at their folly.

    My understanding is that the oath was looked at with a view to revising it. It was soon realized that, in the present climate in Britain, any revision would have opened the door to a multi-culti deluge. It was decided to leave it as it is.

      I seem to recall reading somewhere that revising the oath would mean changing a whole raft of laws which would have opened too many cans of worms, so any revision was dropped for that reason.

        Exactly what I heard. I just wonder what the oath would have been prior to the Protestant Reformation. I must take the trouble to find out.

        Yes, it would be interesting to learn that. But I suspect that if revising the oath would have been easy and not caused constitutional havoc, Charles would have done it. Even the Americans are onto his NWO / WEF eco-mania: Worth seeing even if just for Michael Matt’s hilarious mimicry of Charles.

        I did laugh at Michael Matt’s mimic of the King. I tried to copy the video to embed here so that it would open out but it’s saying “Premieres in 9 hours” so we have to just view it on The Remnant page. Thanks for the alert though – comical plus the rest looks interesting as well. I’ll catch up later.

      Well it would not have raised any concerns if they had just changed Protestantism to Christian. I know some strict Protestants would have objected but nobody else, IMHO.

    I was perplexed to see the Hindu Rishi Sunak reading the Epistle. It makes you wonder how much these people believe in the truth of their own beliefs, if you see my point. If I was asked to read from Hindu equivalent of the Holy Scriptures at a public event – even if I wasn’t required to believe what I read – the answer would be a firm ‘no’.

    This is an interesting piece on Rishi Sunak’s reading from St Paul at the Coronation yesterday.

    The following has arrived in my inbox from WF. Please – as many of us as possible should submit a complaint to Ofcom about this disgraceful report…

    To be clear: the original offence took place on ITV on Coronation Day, and was repeated and defended on BBC4 the next day. Outrageous.

    WF complained to OFCOM:

    I am complaining about Adjoa Andoh’s description of the Buckingham Palace Balcony appearance as being ‘terribly white’. Please explain to me what is ‘terrible’ about being white. Being as the balcony appearance was for working Royals, who just happen to be white, why should this be a cause for Adjoa Andoh to state it is ‘terrible’? She MUST be reprimanded for this, and ITV should not use her for any future public events. But of course, I doubt my complaint will be taken seriously, by an organisation which values political correctness over fairness.

    Thanks Editor. As I say, the original offence took place on ITV on Coronation Day and and it was repeated and defended by the liberal sap Paddy O’Connell on BBC Radio 4 the day after. Ofcom can only receive one complaint at a time, for each offence, so two complaints would have to be made. I think it more important to complain about the original offence on ITV on Coronation Day. Everyone knows how biased the BBC is already. This woman obviously has some kind of chip on her shoulder: Let’s just call her out for what she is: a racist.

    Ofcom has been flooded with complaints about this…

    I’ll submit mine later. It is sickening to see how commonplace it has become for “liberals” to bemoan “whiteness”. The sheer nerve of it.

    I do wonder about the claim that there were lots of people of various races in England/London before the Windrush era. I doubt that; does anyone have any facts to support this claim? It would be interesting to know.

      I’m skeptical about these claims. I’ve just done a Google search but a Wiki article said that the claims it made ‘needed verification’. The other dubious ‘facts and figures’ I noted came from known liberal / far-left sites or sites with an obvious race agenda. While no-one is saying there were no ethnic minorities in London prior to Windrush, I don’t believe that they were present in the numbers – and certainly in the social positions – that you would see on your average TV costume drama these days. Channel 5 even had a film recently where Anne Boleyn was played by a black woman (with lesbian tendencies, to boot).
      I’m 62 and have always lived in a suburb, about 10 minutes train journey to Central London. I wasn’t brought up in a multicultural environment (although few would be concerned about any cultural sensibilities I may have . . .). Even in the mid 1960’s through to the early 1970’s, from my personal experience, I rarely, if ever, saw ethnic minorities where I live. There was only one black child in my primary school. I remember him well. I even remember his name – Theodore. The reason I remember him so well is that he died (we were never told why). He was the first person I knew who died. Then a couple of years later, there was one Asian boy at the primary school.
      In my secondary school (which I left in 1977) we were the last year of the grammar school, before it was closed down. In my year, there was one Asian male and I also remember one Hungarian male. There were no other ethnic minorities. It was only when I entered the world of work at 16, that I started to be around ethnic minorities more regularly, but even then, not that many. This is why I am skeptical about these claims. If, as has been claimed on Wiki “by the middle of the eighteenth century, African people comprised somewhere between one and three percent of the London populace”, I’m sure that by the 20th century there would have been a much greater presence of ethnic minorities in the nearby suburbs. There simply wasn’t.

    And so, it seems, over-representation of ethnic minorities continues:

    Simon Webb’s site History Debunked has much to say debunking claims of longstanding black communities in Britain.

    This says it all: “Immigration added around seven million to the UK population in the two decades up to 2020 – accounting for over four-fifths of total growth (par. 11)” So the real problems started around 2000, under Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’ Government. Basically, in 23 years we’ve now got to the stage where we’ve got to apologise for being white. I see Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has been up to her divisive antics again, making accusations of racism against the Royal Family, but got caught out and had to retract, but did so very ungraciously:

      Yes, it is this business of having to apologise for being white that is really seriously offensive, if one were given to being seriously offended. One really is blankety blank off’d about it. For sure.

      Seriously, it is disgraceful. I think making charges of racism for years now, and finding a meek apologetic response from the UK population, establishment etc. has given these arrogant so & so’s the neck to take their own very real racism to another level.

      As I’ve said many times, if I were to find myself living in a country where I felt I was being treated badly due to my race, nationality, whatever you want to call it, I’d do the obvious thing and move to live somewhere else – preferably where there was a large Scottish population… such as Scotland! I would not remain abroad and spend my days moaning about people treating me like I was a Scot – DUH!

    Good news: but the actress will still get away with it, because she’s black.

    This is the mindset we’re up against, personified by Shola Mos-Shogbamimu

    Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a regular guest on ITV shows such as Good Morning Britain, tweeted a supportive message in favour of the stance the Ghanaian actress (Anjoa Andoh) held.

    She wrote: “#AdjoaAndoh told no lies in factual observation of ‘terribly White’ (literal & symbolic) Buckingham Palace balcony at #Coronation in contrast to tokenism of race diversity at Westminster Abbey & got branded ‘racist’.”

    “White people’s false equivalence of racism is laughable,” she continued.

    “For me, it’s the lack of critical thinking re why the contrast is terrible… even if Adjoa Andoh spent 99.99 [per cent] on TV adulating King Charles & British Monarchy, that one observation of White Balcony erases it because for racists she doesn’t know her place.”

    So in Shola’s mind, we are ‘racist’ for saying Anjoa Andoh’s comment was inappropriate. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu is dangerous and divisive and probably worthy of a thread about her own widely-aired issues. She even humiliated a TV presenter because she had difficulty pronouncing her name:

    I meant to add – and these people want to stop racism? Trouble is, they’re fuelling the fires of racism. Big time. And they know it, and revel in it.
