Democracy ... arises out of the notion that those who are equal in any respect are equal in all respects; because men are equally free, they claim to be absolutely equal.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC)

I feel sorry for her because she was married to a brute undeserving of the name "king".

It was Henry's fault that he could not produce a male child. Those were ignorant times.

I feel sorry for her because she was married to a brute undeserving of the name and the title "king".

Catherine of Aragon one of the six wives of Henry VIII who decided to break away from Rome just because the Pope refused to annul his marriage and set up his own church, the Anglican Church, with his majestic figure as the Head of the English Church.- How sad! How preposterous! To set up a new church not basing your decision on healthy beliefs but on your insane, unreasonable whims.

The myth of the English Reformation is that it did not happen, or that it happened by accident rather than design, or that it was half-hearted and sought a via media between Catholicism and Protestantism; and the point at issue is the identity of the Church of England. The myth was created in two stages, first in the middle years of the seventeenth century, and then from the third decade of the nineteenth century – in either case, by a, 'High Church' party within the Church: first, the Laudians or Arminians, later the Tractarians or Anglo-Catholics. These parties largely consisted of clergy, with the particular motive of emphasising the structural Catholic continuity of the Church over the break of the Reformation, in order to claim that the true representative of the Catholic Church within the borders of England and Wales was not the minority loyal to the Bishop of Rome, but the Church as by law established in 1559 and 1662. The nineteenth century growth of Anglo-Catholicism amounted to nothing less than an ideological revolution in the Church of England, which involved radically reinterpreting its history.
