    Default Protestant Churches attacked

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/4800710.stm

    Funny how it's "vandals" when they attack a Protestant church, but it's "sectarian" when it's a Catholic church.

    Willie McCrea had a chance to say it was sectarian and didn't so maybe it wasn't sectarian.

    Either that or some loyalist drug dealers (who are only defending their peepil) probably though it was a Catholic Church.

    You think the BBC reported his every word?

    Typical republican response. Of course it was the loyalist, 'cos republicna don't do crime, especially sectarian crime, right?

    Correct, Republicans by definition don't "do" sectarian crime.

    In September 1975, for example, the IRA machine-gunned an Orange Order Hall in Tullyvallen, killing five Protestants.

    On January 5 1976, an IRA unit in Armagh shot dead ten Protestant building workers at Kingsmills, in reprisal for Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) killings of six Roman Catholics the previous day.

    Teeban?

    The fact that this sort of thing doesn't happen in the South shows NI is a failed state whereas the Republic in terms of intercommunal relationships and other ways, is the success. NI has a dysfunctional society and a dysfunctional state. It's existence separate from the rest of Ireland perpetuates sectarianism.

    The fact that unionists don't see the Brit govt as their enemy says it all.

    They've allowed themselves be the pawns and foot soldiers that is the failed British political experiment on this island.

    They have allowed themselves to be the minions of the Brit Govt. Time to rise up fellas and ackowledge who your real enemies are...

    your enemy is not the culturally diverse, successful, well educated prosperous 26 counties.
