The year 2017 is the 500th anniversary of what is called the Reformation. One Church that emerged from the Reformation was the Anglican Church. Of all the traditional forms of Protestantism, I loathe Anglicanism the most. I feel this way because the Anglican religion was founded on lies and theft.
A good example of this theft is the looting of the monasteries by Henry VIII, and the stripping of the altars by Edward VI. After a brief recess under Queen Mary where she tried to punish the thieves and heretics who helped cause this chaos, Queen Elizabeth assumed the throne and conducted a horrific persecution of the remaining Catholics in England, and they were driven underground for hundreds of years.
The other crime of Anglicanism is the falsification of history. The best example is John Foxe and his ridiculous Book of Martyrs which is cheap propaganda at best and not worth the paper it’s written on. One would think that this is a thing of the past and doesn’t go on today but you’d be wrong. I’ve come across two recent examples. On Twitter, recently the Church of England posted this humorous picture:
Reformation martyrs? They were Catholics who were made into martyrs by the Reformation. Not only is the Church of England trying to claim these two Catholic Saints as their own, they’re trying to dump King Henry VIII and label him a Catholic!
Recently on Twitter the Anglican Michael Coren said that Henry VIII died a Catholic and persecuted Protestants. This is completely absurd. Yes, he persecuted Protestants but he was a Protestant himself. Another Anglican named Maple Anglican wrote:
I’d say Independent or “Non-Papalist” Catholic is a better term for Henry VIII.
Coren then responded:
Yes, I’d agree.
