The Pope was 'that anti-Christ, that man of sin and son of perdition, who glorifies himself as opposed to Christ'. Criticism ofthe Pope's absolutism was incorporated into an attack on Anglicanism, which was supposedly Romanism in disguise, and on the English Crown, which had supposedly moved its theological loyalty to Rome and advocated political absolutism in the form of 'the divine right of kings', for which Charles eventually went to the axe. That the English Civil War was raging at the time, and Cromwell had landed in Ireland, sharpened any criticism of political and theological absolutism.
Presbyterians were subject to this as much as Catholics, even though they avoided the economic exclusion enforced on Catholics (see Allen, 1994: 125). People within positions of authority locally were required to be Anglicans, including schoolmasters. Public banding was made unlawful, whether in the form of public meetings of five people or more, or signatory to new covenants; no person could abjure the unlawfulness of taking up arms against the King. Ulster Scots were thus forced to make their covenantal oaths of loyalty less conditional, at least in the King's eyes if not God's, and the King rejected an attempt by the Presbyterian Church in Ireland to declare a new covenant in which Charles atIirmed his grandfather's loyalty to Presbyterianism (on which, see Loughridge, 1984: 10).
Catholic separatism as a survival strategy thus begins very early in Protestant-Catholic relations. The Pope forbade Catholics from attending any divine service in a Protestant church, even for the sake of outward obedience to the law. Anti-Protestantism was strong amongst priests, causing many to find it difficult to avoid confrontation. At open-air mass, many priests urged resistance, in politics and theology. A Friar McCrudden, at an open-air mass one Sunday in May 1613, drew down the wrath of Heaven on this 'English service' which had replaced the mass, arguing that it 'proceeded from the sediment of the devil' (quoted in Rafferty, 1994: 20).
