What I find amazing is that this kind of sectarianism exists within western Christianity. And then you find Protestants that hem and haw when Catholics argue that the Garvaghy Road parades should be banned. Protestant scumbags li ...[text shortened]... d celebrations are fueled by religious racism.
Any takers? I'm up for a good fight today.
I'm surprised you're amazed! Many of the bitterest conflicts in Europe have centred on religion. The conflict in former Yugoslavia was in part sectarian between catholic and orthodox christians. The Irish are famously sectarian but if you talk to German's you'll realsie that they have a mojor sectarian divide.
Closer to home for the christian bigots who post on here are the view of the Southern Baptist Union who view catholicism as equivelent to devil worship in much the same way as Paisley does.
The relationship that christianity has had with all other world faiths does not look good in term of anti semitism, anti islam etc etc, the list of atrocities is endless.
Religion, particularly christianity is a wellspring for hatred. If your mot with us then you're damned, and if you're damned then we can treat you like dogs....bigots, all of them.
