Anglican priest brands Boris and Carrie 'the new Tudors' after wedding

Anglican priest brands Boris and Carrie ‘the new Tudorsafter twice-divorced PM was able to re-marry in Catholic church while other divorcees had to tie knot in registry office

  • Twee keer geskeide premier het met die praktiserende Katolieke Carrie Symonds getrou
  • Vorige huwelike word nie as geldig beskou nie, want dit was nie Katolieke seremonies nie
  • Was ses jaar getroud met Allegra Mostyn-Owen & Marina Wheeler vir 27 jare
  • A priest today branded Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie the ‘New Tudorsas she claimed the mechanism that allowed the twice-divorcee to remarry in a Catholic church had effectively ‘made his childrenillegitimate”.’

    Midlands-based Reverend Eva McIntyre, a retired Anglican priest, hit out at religious heads who okayed the service in one of their places of worship on Saturday.

    The Prime Minister was baptised as a Catholic but was confirmed as an Anglican as a teenager when he was at Eton.

    But the Diocese of Westminster said, as iemand wat in die geloof gedoop is, it meant his previous failed marriages were not considered valid because they were not Catholic ceremonies.

    It prompted a row over how Mr Johnson’s ex wives must feel and what it meant for the children he had with them.

    Rev McIntyre said: ‘It’s the using of Canon Law to the benefit of the privileged & at the cost of the Church’s integrity.

    ‘They used Johnson’s RC baptism as an excuse to count his previous marriages void. They made his childrenillegitimate”.

    ‘And we are all serfs at the ‘mercy’ of these new Tudors.

    On Twitter another user asked: ‘If Boris marrying is Westminster Cathedral is true then, as a Catholic, I would like to know why a twice divorced adulterer was able to and my practising Catholic friend who divorced a husband who battered hell out of her had to re-marry in a registry office. ‘

    The baptism meant the Prime Minister could marry for the ‘first’ time in a Roman Catholic church.

    Ondanks verduidelikings oor hoe hul troue volgens die Vatikaan-leerstelling kon gehou word, die onderwerp is gister skerp bespreek deur aanbidders van die Westminster Cathedral.

    Sommige het hulle afgevra of Johnson moes bekeer voordat die huwelik plaasgevind het, terwyl mens Henry VIII se moeilike liefdeslewe selfs as potensiële voorloper grootgemaak het.

    Maar gisteraand het 'n woordvoerder van die bisdom Westminster bevestig: ‘Met betrekking tot geskeide persone, 'n gedoopte Katoliek wat 'n huwelik aangegaan het wat in die burgerlike reg erken word, maar sonder om aan die vereistes van die Katolieke Kanonieke reg te voldoen, word nie in die oë van die Katolieke Kerk as geldig getroud erken nie.

    Austen Ivereigh, 'n Rooms-Katolieke skrywer, kommentator en biograaf van pous Franciskus, op Twitter gesê: ‘Baie sal vra hoe dit die Katolieke Kerk is, bekend vir sy kragtige verbintenis tot die bestendigheid van die huwelik, moet getuig van die huwelik van 'n tweemaal-geskeide premier wat in die openbaar berug is om die teendeel? Watter soort boodskap stuur dit??

    ‘Maar Katolieke het die reg op die sakramente en as hulle aan die wetlike vereistes voldoen, en gaan hulle behoorlik in, niemand kan keer dat hulle daardie regte uitoefen nie. ’

    Mnr Johnson was ses jaar getroud met die eerste vrou Allegra Mostyn-Owen en met die tweede vrou Marina Wheeler vir 27 jare.

    'N Woordvoerder van die Westminster Cathedral bygevoeg: ‘Die bruid en bruidegom is albei gemeentelede van die Westminster-katedraal en gedoopte katolieke.

    ‘Alle nodige stappe is geneem, in sowel die kerklike as die burgerlike reg, en alle formaliteite wat voor die troue voltooi is. Ons wens hulle alle geluk toe. ’
