Church of England
Church of England Since the Reformation, the Church of England or Anglican Church has been the established branch of the Christian church in England. Throughout the medieval period, English kings tried to limit the power of the church and the claims of its independent canon law. All of this was without success until the reign of Henry VIII. Parliament's acts between 1529 and 1536 represent the beginning of the Anglican Church as a national church, independent of papal jurisdiction. Henry VIII,

The king, Charles the First, actions were legitimate, under the ideology he ruled with, absolutism. Though never stating it Charles the First, justified by his wife, was an absolutist. So from his perspective his practices are not at fault, and that is the bias this editorial will be written from, the viewpoint of someone who believes the king should be an absolute Monarch. What Oliver Cromwell, a majority of Parliament, and the Parliamentary forces did was a direct violation of the King's power

‘Abortion is always wrong’ Do you agree? Section C I agree with the statement that ‘Abortion is always wrong’ to a certain extent because a Roman Catholic believes that abortion is murder. He or she would quote ‘Do not kill’ from the Ten Commandments. Roman Catholics believe life begins at conception. In 1968, Pope Paul VI wrote in a human vitae that it was an absolute rule for Roman Catholics that abortion was wrong. In 1970, Pope Paul VI restated that abortion had always been considered murder
