A spirited statement from the Diocese of Guildford of a case that “the Church” was in the vanguard of human rights by reference to Magna Carta.

No mention of the fact that the head of the Church at that time – the Pope – actually issued a Papal bull stating that Magna Carta was null and void, because he was dead against it.

“No mention of the fact that the head of the Church at that time – the Pope – actually issued a Papal bull stating that Magna Carta was null and void, because he was dead against it.” – Badman –

Just shows the actual power of the papacy. That pope died, but the Magna Carta still lives.
