The Orange Order of Scotland, supporters of the DUP and the Tory Party in Scotland

The Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland Grand Master Jim McHarg, in a speech in 2017 said:

“The bulk of the Lodge’s estimated 50,000 Scottish supporters are Tories, and more members of the Order are now serving as elected officials across Scotland than at any time in the past two decades.”

The former Deputy Chairman of the Scottish Conservative & Unionist Party stated:

“I believe deeply in our party, its membership and in the need for a centre right party to represent the hundreds of thousands of Scots who believe in the same things we do.

Putting it bluntly, our General Election results were not good. In all but a few seats the people of Scotland turned out to stop…

The Scottish Tory & Unionist Party and Glasgow Rangers

Links between Tory Party MSP’s and other Individuals, Glasgow Rangers, the Ulster Democratic Unionist Party (UDUP) and the Orange Order are an unhealthy manifestation of the hard line Unionist approach to politics in Scotland adopted by the Tory Party under the Leadership of Ruth Davidson. It is time Scottish Rangers supporters, (the bulk of the fans) voiced their views publicly making it clear that the sectarian views of the largely foreign minority have no platform with Glasgow Rangers. Politicians are expert at exploiting division to their party’s ends and fans should reject any political mischief.

Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-1587)

Open Book

“The daughter of debate that discord aye doth sow”
Elizabeth I, from her sonnet ‘The Doubt of Future Foes’
referring to Mary Queen of Scots

During her lifetime Mary Queen of Scots was a highly controversial monarch and she continues to divide opinion today. When we consider her reign, we often focus on the tragedy of her captivity and execution. These events tend to colour how we view her life, as if its trajectory was an inevitable journey towards the executioner’s block. This is not helped by the two melancholy portraits of Mary which are the most well-known: Clouet’s portrait of her in her white mourning (‘deuil blanc’) after the death of her first husband, Francis II, and the posthumous portrait showing the Queen as a Catholic martyr, now in the Blairs Museum. In the early years of her personal reign in Scotland, however, her success and personal popularity were…

Mary Queen of Scots was a Saint not a sinner!

The lengthy process towards canonisation for Mary and the other 250 (English and Welsh) candidates began to move forward; it took until 1970 for 40 of the English martyrs to be canonised. Queen Mary’s cause, to save time and improve its chances of success, was handed over to the hierarchy of Scotland, and there it apparently remained. Although her beatification had the public approval and support of Pope Benedict XV (1914-22), whether for reasons of political sensitivity or simply the absence of miracles, it remained unresolved and was allowed to slip quietly into oblivion.

The late nineteenth century movement to canonise Mary Queen of Scots was a curious episode in Scottish Catholic history. Initially, this had all the hallmarks of yet another public relations triumph on the part of the Scottish bishops. Then, as quickly as the question of her beatification had arisen, the supporters of Mary’s cause melted away.

If Abbotsford was at the core of the Scottish Catholic cultural psyche, the Church’s association with Mary Queen of Scots gave Catholics added legitimacy through this connection with royalty. The Catholic bishops of Scotland were the guardians of a number of important relics of the Queen — who also featured in Sir Walter Scott’s early novel, The Abbot (published 1820); these relics included her prayer book, crucifix and the ‘Blairs Portrait’, all in considerable demand for national exhibition.1

Mary Queen of Scots was a Saint not a sinner!

The late nineteenth century movement to canonise Mary Queen of Scots was a curious episode in Scottish Catholic history. Initially, this had all the hallmarks of yet another public relations triumph on the part of the Scottish bishops. Then, as quickly as the question of her beatification had arisen, the supporters of Mary’s cause melted away.

If Abbotsford was at the core of the Scottish Catholic cultural psyche, the Church’s association with Mary Queen of Scots gave Catholics added legitimacy through this connection with royalty. The Catholic bishops of Scotland were the guardians of a number of important relics of the Queen — who also featured in Sir Walter Scott’s early novel, The Abbot (published 1820); these relics included her prayer book, crucifix and the ‘Blairs Portrait’, all in considerable demand for national exhibition.1

Nearly ten years after the restoration of the hierarchy, the Scottish bishops welcomed the opportunity to cement their relationship with the British royal family (as well as the Anglican establishment) by participating in the celebrations for the tercentenary of Mary Queen of Scots in an exhibition mounted ‘with proper honours,’ as the Stonyhurst Jesuit, Reginald Coley, put it — Coley even offering to loan Archbishop William Smith a small prayer book traditionally thought to have been used by the Queen at her execution.

The exhibition was planned for the autumn of 1887 at Peterborough; it would feature portraits, rings, manuscripts and missals associated with the Queen; a later showing at Holyroodhouse was proposed.

The celebrations appealed to a significant cross-section of the British public but it also inspired some excessive adulation from less mainstream religious quarters, notably the Countess of Caithness in her spiritualist rhapsody, A Midnight Visit to Holyrood (1887).

The Scottish bishops (encouraged by moves to canonise more than 250 English and Welsh martyrs who were put to death between 1636 and 1679) went a step further by testing support for Queen Mary’s beatification.

Opinions were, however, divided. One of the first hostile reactions came in September 1886 from the Marquess of Bute, who wrote with thinly-veiled distaste: ‘it is not a subject which I have specially studied, and it is one of which I am rather afraid, as it seems impossible to handle it without losing one’s temper’.

Pressed by the bishops, Lord Bute elaborated his views with ominous finality: ‘To enshrine such a person as a Saint, it seems to me that more is required than to regard her as one purified by affliction nobly endured … I do not think anything could justify her marriage to her husband’s murderer.’

In similar vein, Bishop John Macdonald advised that ‘perhaps it would be inopportune to seek for her Beatification. I should somewhat fear that it might tend to bring discredit on canonization and the cultus of the saints generally in the eyes of many of our prejudiced fellow-countrymen, and the question suggests itself, is it worth while incurring this risk?’

When they heard of the Scottish bishops’ campaign, the London newspapers were also scathing, accusing the bishops of fanaticism and of trying to distract attention from the dubious nature of Queen Mary’s candidature by associating her with more illustrious English causes, such as those of Sir Thomas More and John Fisher.

Elsewhere, however, there was unqualified approval for Mary’s beatification: Cardinal Herbert Vaughan took ‘her case up warmly’; John Monteith of Carstairs asked ‘Will not the Church exist in Scotland more nobly when she has recognised Mary as a Martyr …?

‘Ralph Kerr of Newbattle referred to what he saw as the bias inherent in previous historical interpretations of Mary’s career: ‘my feeling is that she has been so villainously handled by adverse or bigoted historians that it is due to her to do all that lies in our power to clear her fame from the depth of prejudice which exists against her.’

The Scottish bishops were, however, very active in collecting material for the forthcoming exhibition (notably the Blairs Portrait of Mary) and in promoting her beatification. In this, the network of influential Scottish convert aristocrats made the bishops’ efforts easier. Mrs Maxwell Scott of Abbotsford, for example, advised Archbishop Smith on how to market Mary’s cause:

I think you will like to have the result of my talks with the Duchess [of Argyle] and Lady Lothian about the Tercentenary. They are both interested and keen about a celebration in Edin. and are quite ready to patronise it …The Duchess says that Lady John is very keen — She possesses many Stuart relics … With regard to Holyrood, the Duchess says that Lord Lothian (as Secretary of State for Scotland) is the right person to ask the Queen for permission … we feel sure he would be glad to ask, he is himself anxious that Scotland should have its own celebration. Lady Lothian thinks the Lord Provost of Edin. should be asked to co-operate in the Movement.

The Duchess suggests that if your Grace liked to put a notice in the papers to invite contributions of pictures … The Duke of Norfolk is I think sending his Queen Mary Rosary to Peterborough with the proviso that it shall go on to Edin. if desired.

No time was lost: an Edinburgh Mary Stuart Exhibition Committee was formed, comprising the Duchess of Buccleuch, the Marchioness of Lothian and Mrs Maxwell Scott, with the artist Sir Joseph Noel Paton (the Queen’s Limner for Scotland) as secretary; the Earl of Hopetoun promised support, as did Lord Rosebery.

Then, unexpectedly, the venture came to a halt — the bishops learned that an international exhibition (to be held in Glasgow the following year) had already made arrangements to show the same relics of the Queen; reluctantly, the Edinburgh exhibition was postponed.

Nevertheless, the move to have Mary beatified continued. Early in 1893, James Campbell, rector of the Scots College, Rome, assured Archbishop Angus MacDonald that Queen Mary’s name could, without any difficulty, be inserted into a forthcoming address to Pope Leo XIII, then celebrating the 25th anniversary of his episcopate — the Pope was already known to be strongly in favour of Mary’s cause.

The Queen’s cause was argued in the archdiocese of Westminster from 24 August 1888 to 13 August 1889.15 The outcome was a decision to proceed: Campbell’s successor in Rome, Robert Fraser, was instructed to forward the petition for Mary’s beatification to the Sacred Congregation of Rites.

The lengthy process towards canonisation for Mary and the other 250 (English and Welsh) candidates began to move forward; it took until 1970 for 40 of the English martyrs to be canonised. Queen Mary’s cause, to save time and improve its chances of success, was handed over to the hierarchy of Scotland, and there it apparently remained. Although her beatification had the public approval and support of Pope Benedict XV (1914-22), whether for reasons of political sensitivity or simply the absence of miracles, it remained unresolved and was allowed to slip quietly into oblivion.

You are victimising me because I defend Mary Queen of Scots and the Catholic and Christian faith. You give me no chance to reply to your blocks maryqueenofscots1587.wordpress.com yet you allow people to call me an idiot or racist and insults. I also defend Jews as we are under constant attack from Islamic sites and comments. I suppose the complainers are from the fake Monarchist fb or BBC World News fb are being used by Islamists.

Islamic ideology is the persecution of Christians and Jews and women treated as slaves and slavery in Pakistan also that Islam should rule the world.

By supporting Islam she is radical. The theft of the Hagia Sophia by the war criminal Erdogan of The Satanic Republic of Turkey is a war crime supported by Turkish defenders of ISIS as a travel hub and sanctuary.

There are no Christian terrorists only Muslims are suicide bombers.

Since 632ad when muhamud was eradicated he ordered the son of Satan Abu Bakir to spread the plague of Islam by force, rape and murder and contaminate the minds of the unwashed Arabs.
