Skip to comments.Obama: religious schools block lasting peace in Northern Ireland
Posted on 06/19/2013 12:47:54 PM PDT by Olog-hai
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.

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.
What about Madrassass?
Obama - creating problems with solutions.
Dumbass puts his tongue right on the 3rd rail of Brit/Irish politics.
I thought Obama believes that diversity is a GOOD thing.
Now it's divisive?
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.
If only someone had rebutted with that. It would have been another broken teleprompter moment.
What do you mean, we?
Obama hates the UK.
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?
His goal is division and unrest. His Master demands human sacrifice.
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.
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
Now Obama is plainly stupid in yet another country.
So they teach that war is peace.
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.
Sidwell Friends School is a highly selective Quaker private school located in Bethesda, Maryland and Washington, D.C., offering pre-kindergarten through secondary school classes
what a nut job.
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.
Shhh, that is racist...
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.
The only Black Irish I know was Phil Lynott.
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.
And he lived in Dublin. Crumlin, specifically.
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.
Thank you for the information!!
