to the Queen
reader of this site wrote the following letter to HRM the Queen.
Please excuse the
clumsy salutation - I'm not sure how to address you.
I am aware that you
are a very busy person, so therefore I do not expect a reply.
I am writing to
express my concern about the state of the Commonwealth in general, and the
monarchy in particular.
First of all, I am a
catholic, although I was baptised High Church of England as a child.
Secondly, I am not a
republican. I'm a member of the 'Ain't broke, don't fix it' school of thought,
and therefore more than happy with our monarchy.
My concerns have been
raised because of happenings over the past few years in a number of countries.
. The bombings and other terrorist atrocities over the past few years all seem
to have Islamist activity as their common denominator.
They are also
described as 'extremist' activities.
I personally don't
agree, but that's the beauty of our society - freedom of thought and speech.
Recently, it's been
all over the internet media that HRH Prince Charles will be talking to Mr.
George W. Bush about the importance of tolerance towards Islam during his visit
I find this an
appalling breach of good manners.
I also find it very
disconcerting when a man who is supposed to become the Head of the Church of
England is extolling the virtues of a religion that decrees women to be worth
less than men in all ways, and has a history more bloody and violent than
anything in the Christian tradition.
I am sure you are
aware that there have been rumours circulating for years that Prince Charles
secretly converted to Islam years ago.
Those rumours show no
sign of abating, and there is a recent essay on a website for ex-muslims on just
The essay can be found
and raises some uncomfortable questions.
Please take the time
to read it, or at least have somebody you trust read it. There are questions
raised that can't be ignored - questions regarding the future of the Church, the
Realm and the Commonwealth.
All we need to do is
, and the
, for starters. There are many other countries after those.
Thank you for your
time, and God bless,
