"Like this if you oppose both racism and SEDITIOUS CONVENTICLES and would join a HOLY SACHEVERELL MOB against them as LOYAL ENGLISHMEN did in 1710!

Saw a new one recently...
I just thought you'd all like to know that your memes are coming in handy debating a group of papists on Instagram. If our church doesn't seem superior to them already, it certainly will after they see these bad boys

I have to say that one struck me as being a bit surly, and as someone who is a fan of the traditional Anglican monastic orders like the Order of the Holy Cross, I didn’t get a huge chuckle there. However, this was more amusing:
Only buys facsimiles - the Chad 1611 Anglican knows that almost illegible old fashioned fonts enhance ones understanding of the Scriptures, and that the letter J is of the devil.
