King James II was a Catholic............ The English Crown, since the Reformation was, indeed still is, very biased towards Protestanism.
Yes, By the "Glorious Revolution" financed by the pope and Jewish dutch banking houses who finally got their charter to create the Bank of England.
\n. \nHe was a Protestant. His wife was Catholic. Many people accused him of being a catholic because he wore extravagant clothing and Catholics were known to like extravagant things.
Roman Catholic Answer There was not an "official" Catholic Bible until the fourth century, when Pope St. Damasas asked St. Jerome to produce the Vulgate. Before that it was just different Old Latin translations, and various manuscripts in Greek. The King James Version wasn't produced until the sixt…eenth century, so timewise, it is behind by about a millennium and a half. The Bible has a long and interesting history. The Bible used by Jesus and the Apostles was the Septuagint. This was a Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures (the Old Testament). It contained all the books of the Bible that are found in modern Catholic Bibles. The Jews of the first century used many different "Bibles". They were not bound in books as we know today. The Sadducee's rejected all but the Torah (the first five books of the Bible). The Septuagint was the widest used Bible during that time. Many years after Jesus' death and resurrection, the Jews met and decided to standardize the Hebrew Scriptures. The disallowed any book that they did not have a Hebrew copy of. These would be the books that were removed from the Bible by the Protestants in the sixteenth century. We now have the original Hebrew of most of those books. Anyway, the original New Testament was in Greek, and the entire Bible was translated into Latin as this was the standard language of the Empire. Later, St. Jerome was commissioned by the Vatican to produce a standard, good Latin translation, this is what is known as the Vulgate. This was the translation used by all Christians until the sixteenth century. At that time, there was a movement to have translations in the common tongue, as the printing press had just been invented and people wanted to read it themselves. The Authorized Version (the King James Version) as produced by translators under King James I of England for the Anglican Church. In addition to numerous errors, it also did not contain the Deuterocanonical books that St. Jerome had objected to as there was no Hebrew Version of them. (Please note that St. Jerome, obedient to the Holy Father, did include all of them in his Bible) About the time of the Authorized Version, there was a translation for Catholics called the Douay-Rheims version (from the name of the two colleges that translated it - Douay did the New Testament, Rheims did the Old Testament). Recently, the Holy Father commissioned a revised Vulgate Version in Latin, this is the "official" text of the Bible for Catholics, which is why the readings at Mass can not be found in any particular translation on the market right now. from Radio Replies , by Fathers Rumble and Carty, 1942 . 560. To whom am I indebted for my English Bible? You are indebted to many collaborators. Between 1525 and 1536 William Tindal translated into English various Greek and Latin copes of the Bible which had been made by Catholic monks, copies which could be traced back to the original Scriptures. Cromwell was not satisfied with Tindale's translation, so commissioned Miles Coverdale to make a new one. Coverdale used and perfected to some extent Tindale's version, and published the "Great Bible" in 1539. Not satisfied with this, a committee of Anglican Bishops revised it, and in 1568 published what is know as the "Bishops' Bible.) This was also faulty, and King James 1 st of England ordered a new revision.

Yes, James was Catholic and that caused many problems with the mostly Protestant English Parliament.
No king James wanted to get away from the Catholic Church and started his own church the church of England.
Catholic Answer There is no "Protestant Bible". The Bible translation most commonly used by protestants is the Authorized Version, commonly known as the King James Version, which is the name of a translation of the Bible. The Bible is a whole collection of books, and as such does not have a name. …The early Church used the Septuagint for their Old Testament, and had many different scrolls in Latin and Greek for their New Testament Scriptures. The first "official" Bible, as in one continuous book was The Vulgate which was a translations of all the Scriptures by St. Jerome in the fourth century. The closest thing that the Catholic Church has in English is the Douay-Rheims translation, which was made about the same time as the Authorized Version. (MORE)
Charles II was himself a liberal and tolerant Protestant until he converted to Catholicism on his deathbed. He died on the 6th February 1685.
The people of England were all Protestant, and they disagreed with having a Catholic King, so they overthrew him so the heir of the throne, who was a Protestant, would rule.
the group of catholics wanted to assassinate him because he was a catholic but Gu Fawkes was innocent because he was set up by king James' servant!

James II Stuart , (born 14 October 1633) succeeded to the title 'King of Great Britain' on 6 February 1685, and crowned 'King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith' on 23 April 1685. However, as a Catholic Monarch in Anglican England, James' position was somewhat incongruou…s and uncomfortable. There was much opposition to the fact that he was appointing Catholics to key posts, and his position became extremely tenuous. Consequently he abdicated from being King of Great Britain on 11 December 1688, and fled the country. In due course the British Parliament offered the role of sovereignty to James' eldest surviving daughter, Mary, a protestant, and she officially succeeded to the title Queen Mary II of Great Britain on 13 February 1689, and was crowned 'Queen of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith' on 11 April 1689. She was already married to the Dutch protestant, 'Prince William of Orange' (The Netherlands), her first cousin. William's mother was Mary Henrietta Stuart, the daughter of King Charles I (Stuart) of England, so Parliament was happy to appoint William as joint sovereign of Great Britain with his wife. So, by blood (by line of descent), King James II was succeeded by his daughter, Mary, (who became Queen Mary II), and by the simultaneous appointment of her husband, William, as ' King William III of Great Britain ', the joint sovereignty being known as the reign of ' William and Mary '. And thus the congruity of a protestant monarchy over a protestant country was restored. For more information, see 'Related links' below. (MORE)
King James didn't "find" North Carolina. Kings gave land grants to people for various reasons and that is what happened in North Carolina. He did name it after his father Charles.

Phillip II was known as the " Most Catholic King" because he had extreme control over the catholic church, he even had more control then the protestants did. He was also given this name because he controlled more of the church then any other country had.
The political ineptitude of James is clear; he often showed firmness when conciliation was needed, and weakness when resolution alone could have saved the day. Moreover, though he mismanaged almost every political problem with which he personally dealt, he was singularly tactless and impatient of ad…vice. But in general political morality he was not below his age, and in his advocacy of toleration decidedly above it. He was more honest and sincere than Charles II, more genuinely patriotic in his foreign policy, and more consistent in his religious attitude. That his brother retained the throne while James lost it is an ironical demonstration that a more pitiless fate awaits the ruler whose faults are of the intellect, than one whose faults are of the heart.

Depends on your definition. Henry VIII broke with Rome but Edward was the first Catholic king.
Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi ( SINCE THAT DAY WE DIDNOT SEE AHAPPY DAY ) HE IS IN POWER FOR 40 YEARS NOW AND HE MIGHT STAY FOR ANTHER 40 YEARS .
He didn't. There were many rifts between the 'Catholic' Church - especially the Great schism between the Church in the East and the West - long before Henry VIII.. As for the Protestant Church , even this had little to do with Henry, but began long before Henry mostly by Martin Luther, a German mon…k, who quarrelled with the Church over corrupt practices, especially the doctrine of purgatory and the selling of indulgences. This culminated in his publishing his 'theses' against the Church by nailing them to a church door at Wittenberg. As a result Martin Luther was excommunicated but he, Calvin and Zwingli between them began the Reformation and the formation of the Protestant Church - so called as it 'protested' against Rome.. As for Henry, there was already a great sympathy for the Protestant movement in England not least because of the corruption and power wielded by the monasteries. The refusal of the Pope to grant an annulment of the marriage between Anne Boleyn and Henry (for political reasons as far as Henry was concerned) was the last straw and resulted in Henry yielding to public pressure and forming the Church of England, with Christ (not the Pope) as head of the Church, with Henry himself (and subsequent monarchs) as 'supreme governor' on earth, and the Archbishop of Canterbury as spiritual leader. He subsequently dissolved the monasteries in England, seizing their treasures, allowed the Bible and Prayer Book to be written in English and not solely in Latin, and tried to ensure that the Protestant line would continue through his descendents, an effort in which, with the exception of Mary I, he was successful.. Henry VIII is regarded as somewhat of a tyrant king by modern historians, but this is a little unfair. While there is no doubt that, when riled, he was not to be argued with (after all he did arrange the execution of two of his six wives), he was generally liked by the populace as a whole, was a clever and astute ruler, and a first class musician (he wrote the tune 'Greensleeves' among many others), and it is a shame that he is remembered solely for 'starting a fight' between Catholics and Protestants, when he was not to blame for such a rift or arguement.

It contains theApocrypha ( a set of extra-biblical writings, not inspired of God but some are useful for historical purposes like Maccabees's the first 1611 kjv edition contained this as well, but was quickly pulled from all editions following the first edition. It is also translated from the Vulgat…e, originally translated from a different variant set of Greek manuscripts. The KJV is translated from the Western Syrian texts, where it also translates from the Latin, it is the Latin that preceded the Vulgate line of Latin manuscripts. Roman Catholic Answer It was Protestantism that removed these "deuterocanonical" books from the Bible, many centuries later. And contrary to the myth, the early Church did indeed accept these books as Scripture. The seven disputed books are: Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus (or Sirach), and Baruch. Catholic Bibles also include an additional six chapters (107 verses) in Esther and three chapters (174 verses) in Daniel. According to major Protestant scholars and historians, in the first four centuries Church leaders (e.g. St. Justin Martyr, Tertullian, St. Augustine, St. Ambrose, St. Cyprian, St. Irenaeus) generally recognized these seven books as canonical and scriptural, following the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament, following the Council of Rome (382), and general consensus, finalized the New Testament canon while also including the deutercanon, in lists that were identical to that of the Council of Trent (1545-1563). There's a scholarly consensus that this canon was pretty much accepted from the fourth century to the sixteenth, and indeed, the earliest Greek manuscripts of the Old Testament: the Codes Sinaiticus (fourth century) and Codex Alexandrinus (c. 450) include the (unseparated) deuterocanonical books. The Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran did not contain Esther, but did contain Tobit. According to Douglas and Geisler, Jamnia (first century Jewish council) was not an authoritative council, but simply a gathering of scholars, and similar events occurred afterward. In fact, at Jamnia the canonicity of books such as Ester, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon was also disputed. Since both Protestants and Catholics accept these books today, this shows that Jamnia did not "settle" anything. The Jews were still arguing about the canonicity of the books mentioned earlier and also Proverbs into the early second century. And St. Jerome's sometimes critical views on these books are not a clear-cut as Protestants often make them out to be. In his Apology Against Rufinus (402) for example, he wrote: When I repeat what the Jews say against the story of Susanna and the the Hymn of the Three Children, and the fables of Bel and the Dragon, which are not contained in the Hebrew Bible, the man who makes this a charge against me proves himself to be a fool and a slanderer; for I explained not what I thought but what they commonly say against us ( Apology Against Rufinus , book II, 33) . Significantly, St. Jerome included the deuterocanonical books in the Vulgate, his Latin translation of the Bible, (And he defended the inspiration of Judith in a preface to it.) All in all, there is no clear evidence that St. Jerome rejected these seven books, and much to suggest that he accepted them as inspired Scripture, as the Catholic Church does today. But St. Jerome (like any Church father) does not have the final authority in the Church. He's not infallible. The historical evidence, all things considered, strongly supports the Catholic belief that these books are inspired and thus indeed part of Holy Scripture from The One-Minute Apologist by Dave Armstrong; Manchester, NH: Sophia Institute Press, 2007 (MORE)

At first glance many people think a Catholic Protestant is a contadiction in terms. However there are Protestant (or Reformed) people and churches that identify as Catholic but not Roman Catholic . Catholic means 'universal' or 'general', so some Protestants regard themselves as catholic in the… sense of being part of the universal church of Christ. There is also an Anglican church not centred on the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Anglican Communion called the Anglican Catholic Church. The Anglican Communion itself points out that a Catholic that follows the Bishop of Rome (usually called the Pope) is a Roman Catholic where-as they identify as Anglican Catholic. To quote the Anglican Church of Ireland website: "The Church of Ireland is Catholic because it is in possession of a continuous tradition of faith and practice, based on Scripture and early traditions, enshrined in the Catholic Creeds, together with the sacraments and apostolic ministry." . Catholic Answer A Catholic Protestant remains an oxymoron as there is only one Catholic Church - by Our Blessed Lord's own definition - and a protestant, by definition, is someone whose religion is protesting the Catholic Church. Redefining terms and saying that all truth is relative helps no one, and doesn't make any sense anyway. (MORE)

I don't understand what the question is supposed to mean.
