The Diocese of Clifton and the Diocese of Northampton have both given the A Call to Action dissent movement official status on diocesan websites. The Diocese of Clifton lists ACTA under ‘Services and Commissions’, and states that Bishop Lang attended the 26th November 2013 meeting as an observer, ‘thanked us for our views, and expressed the desire to be kept informed of our progress.’ The Diocese of Northamption lists ACTA under ‘Groups and societies actively represented in the Diocese.

Protect the Pope comment: Apart from showing the official collusion of two dioceses with a dissent movement within the Church both of these website pages make reference to ACTA’s infamous Heythrop meeting held in October 2012. Following their Heythrop meeting ACTA published a document that explicitly outlines the extent of ACTA’s dissent, which they have attempted to hide since Mgr Marcus Stock’s attendance of the Hinsley Hall national conference. It should be noted that the ordination of women was mentioned four times in the summary of the Heythrop meeting, and that withholding money and saying No to Peter’s Pence was also mentioned a number of times. This is the true face of ACTA. The Heythrop document also shows that they are fundamentally opposed to the hierarchical Church instituted by Our Lord Jesus Christ. It also shows a deep antipathy towards, and rejection of, the authority of the successor of St Peter and the Holy See. A Call to Action makes it clear that if the bishops don’t heed their demands, they will take unilateral actions by setting up their own institutions.
