Babington Plot


The new movie “Elizabeth” I believe pertains to the Babington Plot. With that said; my wife was planning on going this evening to see it with some friends. After reading up on it she is reluctant now. I really don’t know much about it but from what I read the Church wanted to have her assasinated because the Church wanted a Catholic to be the Queen. Can someone tell me or steer me in the right direction as to the truth to all this?

Thank you!


I saw the first Elizabeth movie at the theater with my wife and we were on the verge of walking out through the whole movie because of the crass and ignorant anti-Catholicism and historical distortions.

I hear the new movie is even worse, and I have no plans to see it. Here is one link about it.
