On this day:
AD 638, First day of the Islamic calendar . May we soon see its last day!
AD 1552, Second version of the «Book of Common Prayer» becomes mandatory in England. The heretics removed all Catholic traces from their liturgy.
AD 1647, Scottish Presbyterians sell His Majesty, King Charles I to English parliament. In just over two years the English heretics judicially murdered him.
AD 1719, Principality of Liechtenstein created within Holy Roman Empire. To my knowledge, it is the only constituent principality of the Empire still in existence. Long life to the Prince of Liechtenstein!
AD 1737 John («The people, Sir, are a great beast!») Hancock, born.
AD 1789 Georgetown, 1st US Catholic college, founded. Too bad it no longer is Catholic!
AD 1924, Ramsey MacDonald forms 1st Labour (Socialist) government in Britain. And Britain begins her descent into totalitarianism!
