Obama: religious schools block lasting peace in Northern Ireland
Catholic World News via CatholicCulture.org ^ | June 18, 2013

US President Barack Obama has argued that parochial schools are an impediment to the establishment of a lasting peace in Northern Ireland.

Speaking to a crowd in Belfast, during a trip to Northern Ireland for a G8 summit meeting, Obama said that “segregated schools” block the path to full reconciliation. “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," he said. …

Alas, how obtuse.

Does he also want to get rid of such schools in the USA?

I think the dumb ba$turd is trying to reignite the long simmering, but currently dormant, feud and blood bath.

But . . . but . . . but . . .

I thought Obama believes that diversity is a GOOD thing.

Now it's divisive?

This asshole goes around the world, dictating what OTHERS should do, while lowering the once-great America to a level amongst the whale dung....in the eyes of the rest of the world.

Has he ever gone ANYWHERE that he did not degrade the American Presidency? Most times, he apologizes for America's past greatness, trying to bring us down to the "enlightened" status of his African roots.

Obama spreads chaos and conflict wherever he goes. The man has the Midas touch in some bizarre world.

He works so hard to divide AMerica racially and play golf, who knew he had time to stir up divisiveness and bigotry against Christians in other countries?

Yes, divide and destroy the west.
Plus we need more white terrorists in the world, as an excuse for TSA to keep groping Irish grandmothers.

I believe it is obvious from what has been going on in the Defense department, with regard to expressions of religious Faith, that he is quite hostile to religious schools everywhere.

By the way, has anyone noticed how ending segregated schools has actually worked with respect to promoting better feelings between the races? (People having schools they can take pride in, whatever the basis for enrollment, is positive. Forced association is not.

Madrasa's don't confuse and obstruct peace.

They teach that you just kill your enemy, or your perceived enemy, or someone you think MIGHT BE your enemy, or someone you WANT TO BE your enemy

Why even discuss this. The catholics are not going to do a single thing about it. Pointless to argue it...

If there are any Northern Ireland Ulstermen reading this thread, please, please, disregard this man meddling in your affairs. He’s an embarrassment to us yanks.

obama (satan’s son) blames churches, white people, GOD and bush... but never himself or the failings of the left.

This man is so fortunate that the major media won’t report this...any other politician saying something this stupid would get crucified in the media.

Once again, the Communist saying that God is the problem, not him!

By the way, how many Irish black people are there, that would have to be trolleyed out to one of his ‘epipheneal visitations’???

I’ve never been there, so I am really asking this, in the true sense of being curious.

I am sure Northern Ireland appreciates the advice of this CS’er who has so far managed to crap on everything he has touched.

They would be better served listening to a dony braying in a field than listening to this vacationing turd.

In Northern Ireland, the population of black people (African descent) is a little over a thousand. In the Republic of Ireland, there are about 43,000, IIRC.
