    I can only imagine the mental gymnastics being endured at the DUP, TUV, UUP and others of their ilk breakfast table this morning.

    After all his promises of "No Irish Sea Border", "No Border Checks" and every other conceivable bit of unionist plámás uttered by the man whilst he has been in office...

    He has taken that ultimate step of betrayal and not only outed himself as a Catholic, but married one too :pac:

    I'd be there are parliamentary researchers being tasked to dig out any still active penal laws and ensure the treacherous Turk is hurriedly barred from office!

    Seriously though, congratulations to the Jacobites on playing the long game and 320yrs later...
    Finally managing to get a Taig PM ;)

    All we need now is to somehow sneak in a Catholic Monarch and the long, long game will be finally complete ;)

    I thought the CC refused to marry divorced people?

    If I recall, he was raised a catholic from his mother's side. He converted to the Church of England when he was young, though.

    One step at a time. A non-German monarch would be a start :pac:

    Christened Catholic and confirmed CoE iirc.
    It's the auld once a Catholic, always a Catholic clause.
    And as he wasn't ever previously married in the Catholic rite, he gets a pass on the divorces and is technically free to marry in a Catholic church.

    That ruins my poke fun at the DUP approach however and is being ignored ;)

    Apparently he's third in line line after the Duke of Bavaria. The legitimate Stuart line died out in 1807.

    It seems Boris likes 'em young, a true Catholic indeed ...

    Easy know they're not too fond of the catholics, the Catholic Westminster Cathedral is the worst looking church in the world. An atrocious looking monstrosity.

    just highlights the double standards within the catholic church...

    if divorced within a "catholic marriage" you can't remarry in a catholic ceremony but outside you can :confused:

    wtf is that about?

    Isn't It obvious. The Catholic Church would view same sex Marriages and other faith Marriages the same way. Not Marriages. So, they could get married for the first time in a Catholic church, in their view.

    I’m in love with him and I feel fine.
