      "And this may be thought the less strange, when persons chargeable with most of these sins, are admitted, and continued to be office-bearers in the house of God. Persons, and even teachers maintaining most dreadful blasphemous errors connived at, patronized, or but slightly censured, and still kept in communion, without any open renunciation of these heresies. Play-houses, the seminaries of vice and impiety, erected in the principal cities of the nation, and stage players, commonly among the most abandoned of mankind, escape with impunity. Yea, this pagan entertainment of the stage is countenanced by the members and office-bearers of this church, and that to such a degree, that one of the ministers thereof has commenced author of a most profane play, called The Tragedy of Douglas, wherein immorality is promoted, and what is sacred, exposed to ridicule. Oh! how astonishing! that a minister in the once famous church of Scotland should be guilty of such abominations, and yet not immediately sentenced to bear the highest of all church censure!"  (Part II http://www.covenanter.org/RefPres/actdeclarationandtestimony/actpart2.htm#part2 Do a search for "stage.")
       
      There's another reference to theater attendance which I can't find at the moment.

      Which part of the Act, Declaration and Testimony?  I can't find this section.  Can you provide the context?
       
      Thanks,

      Martin

      Hello Dan,
       
      The A,D and T is a document and subordinate standard that historical RP's are bound by (in regard to its contents). Around page 95, it forbids attendance at Theatres. As I understand it, actors are thought to be "pretenders" [the greek word for actor is hypocros (sp?)], and are to be avoided by RP's. Not all RP's agree with this document, although it is indeed part of their historical heritage.
