UK gov act of settlement 1707

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/176818/sponsors/ixRgN3N0xvQeVPz8SO3 settlement act 1707 for British royal family

Due to act of settlement 1707 anyone who is Catholic cannot inherit the throne of British royal family this is to exclude the Scottish Stuart's to inherit the British throne

P the act of settlement 1707 is an age old rule that today would be viewed as anti religious that wouldn't be tolerated at any other work place or society

Was not the Act of Settlement passed in 1701 and not in 1707?
The Succession to the Crown Act 1707 replaced the Regency Act 1705.

Yes it would be - e.g. would anyone really expect the Pope to not be Roman Catholic or the Head of the Orthodox churches to not be Orthodox etc etc???

Why then would anyone expect the Supreme Governor of the Church of England to be anything other than CoE? That is why there is an insistence of the monarch of the UK being in communion with the CoE because they are also the Supreme Governor of the CoE.

Seems like I remember the King or Queen of Sweden has to be of the Protestant faith and a few more countries have a similar rule as well.

The Queen of Denmark is also the Head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark and as such she and her heir and their spouses have to be Lutheran. I remember when Mary married Frederick she had to convert from Presbyterianism to Lutheranism.

Amazingly it is only the BRF who are condemned for having this rule - whereas it applies in most monarchies in Europe one way or another. Sweden removed the position of 'state church' from the Lutheran church in 2000 which probably makes it easier for a non-Lutheran to marry into the SRF.

Yes, the Swedish throne requires you to be a member of the Lutheran church (even though they don't have a state church)

Denmark has a state church like the UK, requiring the same of monarch and heir.

The Dutch pretty much require a protestant. Maxima didn't have to convert but her kids are raised protestant. Princess Irene caused a huge issue when she married a Catholic. Technically no law stating that they cant marry a Catholic, as seen with Maxima, but an expectation for a protestant monarch.

I don't think anyone would find it too odd either if very catholic monarchies like Spain, Luxembourg and Lichtenstein required at least their heir to remain catholic and raise the kids as such.

Actually religion can be a deciding factor in a job if you can show why it is necessary. Having a Jewish person apply for a job as a catholic priest? Catholic schools usually require their teachers to be catholic. I guess Muslims should be allowed to be nominated for Pope, or it would be discrimination?
