Talk:Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829

|A fact from this article was featured on Wikipedia's Main Page in the On this day... section on April 13, 2013.|
I would like the know what source this article uses when it speaks of the property qualification being raised, and of Catholics being unable to advise the Sovereign about the appointment of bishops to the C of E. My reading of the text of the bill did not show up either of these facts. I am not necessarily doubting that these provisions were made, but not by the said Act. What statute, regulation, etc, if any, made these two rules?--Iacobus 04:38, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
The limitations are in the Act, 10 Geo IV C7, SS XVII &XVIII. The qualification amendment was in the accompanying Act 10 Geo IV C8. Note that the link in the article which purports to show the text of the Act does not, much is elided. It is necessary to consult the authoritative Statues at Large. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:11, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
- One, important, word has been left out in this article. It is Roman. 126.96.36.199 19:10, 27 December 2006 (UTC)JemmyH.
I'm uncomfortable with the wording about Tony Blair "not being a [Roman] Catholic". It's widely considered, here in the UK, that Blair is Anglican in name only, possibly for political expedience's sake. His wife and children are all Catholic (and his kids are educated at the London Oratory, a grant-maintained Roman Catholic school) and many expect that he will formally convert (from Anglo-Catholic Anglicanism) when he leaves Number 10.
But I can't think of a good way to change the current wording:
|“||The current Prime Minister, Tony Blair, whilst married to a Catholic, is not one himself.||”|
Whilst it's strictly true, it's misleading, imho.
Thoughts, anyone? — OwenBlacker 14:29, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
When an 'Islamic' gets to the position of Prime Minister it will be time to emigrate. 188.8.131.52 02:58, 28 January 2007 (UTC) JemmyH.
Should this page be renamed 'Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829'?
When the Act described in this article was passed, it was called the 'Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829', not the 'Catholic Relief Act 1829'. Shouldn't the title of the article reflect this? The article for the Roman Catholic Relief Act 1791 uses the original title.
This isn't to say that Catholics should be called Roman Catholics: it's just that it seems sensible to give the act its original title. The fact that the British Government chose this form of wording gives a valuable insight into the way Catholics were viewed at the time, and helps set the context for the Article as a whole.
Any thoughts? - Parson's Cat 14:45 12 September 2010 (UTC)
