I WELSH CHURCH FOURTEEN POINTS. To the Editor, Amman Valley Chronicle. Sir,—Under the above heading, the Rev. D. J. Llewelyn, Beaufort Vicarage, published fourteen points against the Disestablishment and Disendowment of the Established Church in Wales. Without answering the famous fourteen points, every student of history knows that every one of his points are misleading and erroneous; only artificial clouds to blind the Welsh people. The best thing we can do with the past history of the Church, estab- lished by Henry VIII. is to forget it. The Established Church of England was established to justify the immoral life of King Henry VIII., the worst character in English history. Read how this head of the Church robbed the monasteries and religious houses of all endowments and all other properties belonging to the Roman Catholic Church, and gave the spoils to his own Church. So please do not squeak when you have got to give some of the spoils up to the nation. The Welsh Church Act gives the Welsh Church justice and equality. We know how the Churchpeople treated the Nonconformists over the tithes; how they sold furniture, and even sold Peggy Lewis' cow—a poor old widow's property. This is sufficient proof, and every schoolboy knows history. Every Liberal and Labour member of Parliament must see that the Welsh Church Act is not tampered with. Churchpeople must maintain their own Church, as Nonconformists maintain their chapek. This is only justice, and what was needed.— Yours, &c., NONCONFORMIST.
