Best achieved by sticking to the term in the Act itself, namely
"Papist".

I'm not now and never have been a member of the church headquartered
in Rome, but "Papist" sounds pejorative to me. Do others perceive it
as neutral?

No, but there isn't a neutral term. To use "Catholic" is extremely
non-neutral, since it denies the claims of other Churches to that
description, and "Roman Catholic" is hopelessly ambiguous.
