Story: Ethnic and religious intolerance

The Nation journal

The Nation journal

The Nation was founded as a Protestant journal about 1906 and became the outlet for both the Protestant Political Association and the strongly Protestant Orange Order. In 1953 it was still attacking the Roman Catholic church. This article criticised the Pope, who was said to have declared void the marriage of a Catholic and a non-Catholic because the husband had not allowed the children to be brought up as Catholics.
