WASHINGTON — President Obama may have picked up a few scratches after he ventured into the political thicket that is Northern Ireland this week.Division is a bad thing indeed but I have the solution. Pagans should reject their heathen superstitions and demonically inspired false religions, Protestants should renounce their errors and man made churches, and everyone should formally join the one true Church of Christ founded by our Blessed Lord Himself, the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. That's what Obama meant right? Right? Oh...
Some Catholics were offended by remarks Obama gave at a town hall meeting in Belfast Monday, in which he called on the regions often deeply divided Catholic and Protestant populations to integrate.
“Issues like segregated schools and housing, lack of jobs and opportunity — symbols of history that are a source of pride for some and pain for others — these are not tangential to peace; they’re essential to it,” Obama said. “If towns remain divided — if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs — if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division. It discourages cooperation.”
