Barack Obama continued his war on Christianity in Ireland with an attack on Catholic Schools, calling them divisive.. Proving once again he enjoys using a foreign stage to tell people he doesn’t think much of American values, or the United States Constitution… It didn’t go over to well according to the Scottish Catholic Observer
The US President has made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland in spite of the fact that Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education was ‘a critical component of the Church.’
President Barack Obama (above), repeated the oft disproved claim that Catholic education increases division in front of an audience of 2000 young people, including many Catholics, at Belfast’s Waterfront hall when he arrived in the country this morning.
“If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation,” the US president said.
The US politician made the unfounded claim despite a top Vatican official spelling out the undeniable good done by Catholic education in a speech in Glasgow on Saturday and in his homily at Mass on Friday.
I always enjoy looking at the comments after I read an article like that, most of the time you can learn more about what people really think from the comments than the article itself..
There’s a lot of people in Northern Ireland who don’t think to highly of Barack Obama..
Jake Thegezer says:What Obama is suggesting is the Irish should have the American system of “public schools” which have their own more serious problems like students shooting and stabbing each other in school buildings. This shows how ignorant and dismissive Obama is of Irish culture. A good visitor tolerates his hosts peculiarities and sees the good in foreign countries. Like old fish, the longer Obama is around the worse he smells. Obama’s values stink.
Tom McEwen says:A lie is a lie if everyone believes it and the truth is the truth if no one believes it.
Obama is in his actions a enemy of the Catholic Church and Christianity in general. Gay marriage which he supports seeks the end of freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of conscience. He is open about his belief that rights come from the state, not God. He open about taking those rights he has given away. His success is remarkable, his core “Boo’ed” God they are open too about their aims. I hope the Leadership can call a spade a spade and not a soil relocation – hand operated device.
Marie says:Isn’t having a state school equally as divisive? Let parents decide what’s best for their children, whether it’s religious school, homeschool or state-sponsored school.
Why doesn’t he go home to his own country and face the consequences of his administration’s failures? He’s the US president, not any other country’s.
You can check out all the comments yourself, but it’s clear the Irish Catholics don’t want Obama trying to destroy their religion and way of life.. Several commenters had things to say about the way he’s attacking religion in the US and trying to use our school system to indoctrinate our children with his Marxist/Fascist beliefs..
