Guy Fawkes and how Catholics saved the British Empire

Today is Guy Fawkes Day - a day that commemorates the fateful events in 1605 when Catholics saved the British Empire.

On November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes and the rest of the Gunpowder Plot were ready to blow up the British Parliment and kill King James I in response to the mistreatment of Catholics at the time. Fawkes and Company, of course, warned the Catholic Lords and Members of Parliament to stay away and save themselves.

Rather than doing that, though, those Catholics warned the authorities. Because of this, the conspirators were captured and their bombs were discovered. As a result, one can legitimately say that that on November 5,1605, Catholics saved the British Empire.

Granted, they saved it from another group of Catholics who wanted to blow everything up.However, let's focus on the positive.

My point here is that you're welcome, England. You're welcome.
