Yes, there certainly are. Of course, the one who can, or could, put is best is
himself of Presbyterian persuasion so less than likely to be sympathetic to the
Anglican cause. however, there is one thing on which Eddie and I will, I suspect,
agree, and that is that the causes of such events or series of events as the
killing times run much deeper than the "foisting" of one set of religious beliefs
on those wanting to adhere to another. Don't bring religion into it, Jim. Too
many people already have!
To get the Covenant and the killing times, and a hundred othr historical events,
in perspective requires a study of history rather than of religious dogma, so at
this point I'll hand over to our resident historian
