POPBRy, in its proper colours, is so unlike Christianity, that it is in vain-ever to hope to promote it, if it appears in its own shape. It is necessary, therefore, that this Religion be made to look as orthodox as possible. Some things are denied, others mollified, all disguised; and a double benefit is thereby obtained. Popery is to be received as a very innocent, harmless thing; and the Protestants, especially the ministers and first reformers, are to be represented to the world as a sort of people that have supported themselves by calumny and lies, and made a noise about errors and corruptions which are nowhere to be found but in their own brains or books, but which the Church of Rome detests as
