RC: I have a question that I hope is not too impertinent: Do you expect to modify your views on monarchy if you join the Roman Catholic Church?
No, I don't see why I would have to, since I know traditional Catholics on this forum and elsewhere who agree with me. I am convinced that my support of the British monarchy is compatible with Catholicism--and in fact obligatory for any Catholic living in Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or the other countries of which the British monarch is head of state.
I really do think that your protestant Anglican background seriously influences your views.
What "protestant Anglican background"? I have never been a Protestant or an Anglican or any other type of Christian. I was brought up Unitarian Universalist but rejected that for a variety of reasons. It is pretty clear to me that if
Christianity is true, the Roman Catholic Church has to be the true church. The obstacles to my conversion lie with Christianity and faith in general, not with the differences between Catholicism and Protestantism, regarding which I am already in the former camp. Hope that clears things up.
