So you are advocating the protection from prosecution of religious leaders on the grounds that it may incite their followers to further violence .
There`s an interesting U turn !!!
I personally do not care to be honest.
All I have said is it will do more harm to the current peace process than good.
The IRA have sat around a table with British politicians, where we know the like of Adams and Mcguiness have taken part in terrorist activities in the past.
Would that not be double standards to then try and convict someone for similar crimes?
For me the difference here is the fact he was/is a priest.
I do not confess to know a huge ammount about NI,what I do know is currently there is peace of a sort, and to convict a Catholic priest when things are so fragile, would possibly ignite huge trouble in the province.
I am sure that most would not want that.
My personal views are pretty irrelevent here ..... I`m assuming that you`d be happy for the government to sit down and negotiate with members of Hamas or Al Qaeda if hostilities were reduced .
I`m making this assumption because you appear to be happy that negotiations are going on with factions of the IRA while bombs are still going off .
I mentioned U turns because you have made quite clear on numerous occasions your views of muslim religious leaders "inciting" terrorism but you appear to find it acceptable that a catholic priests alleged involvment in a bombing that killed an 8 year old child cleaning her parents windows should be covered up ...
Me .....I`d shoot the fuckin lot of em ...... I `m trying to work out why you have a problem with muslims but find it ok for catholics
Firstly like most I believe I want to see a peace in NI. There are always two arguements in any war/dispute...call it what you will.
Yes you would be right to assume that whilst I may not be happy with this Government sitting around a table with Al Qaeda or whoever, sometimes dialogue is the only way the fighting and the deaths will hopefully cease....you seem to have this notion that I am happy to be at war, which I am not.
My political views on either NI or Afghanistan is a separate issue here.
For the record I have no problem with Muslims, but I do have a problem with the faith. That does not mean that I do not want to see an end to hostilities in Afghanistan.My one and only concerns there are our troops..........nobody else.
Anyway this is all conjecture is it not?
This is all alleged and until charges are brought against anyone, should we not just sit back and see if there is any truth in all this?
