The years 1603 to 1714 were also a period of intense religious debate and radical politics with a civil war breaking out between the House of Stuart and Parliament. Much like with Trump today, the English Parliament was influenced by the Crown Beast and Jesuits, and was used to attempt an overthrow of the ruling power. This civil war came to a climax with the Parliamentary victory of Oliver Cromwell, and the execution of King Charles I in 1649. There is testimony of a Catholic Priest who said that Cromwell was associating with the Jesuits. This Priest was subsequently minimized as a Catholic Church hater, even though he was a Priest. Protestants of the time, and later years, claimed that Cromwell, though a Protestant himself, was in fact a stooge of the Church, and intentionally undermined the House of Stuart. Regardless, this was a major win for the Crown Beast and its subsidiary, the Catholic Church, and the Churches subsidiary, the Jesuit Order.
