leveller said the ira were started because of the british troops this is pure fiction the troops got sent there to protect the catholics! Also you said the church does not support them why then have there been 2 catholic priests convicted of being members one with guns and the other with bombs?

Spoken like a true "freemason".
Cheers Dave.


By the way. Don't tell lies and try to put words in my mouth. I know why the IRA started and I know why the British Army was sent to Ireland. I never even broached the subject though.

Well Dave, you claim not to hate Catholics either, but you've branded all of those in the US as supporters of terrorism.

So I don't know. You tell me.

Dave, Dave, Dave.
I know the British Army was sent in to defend Catholics. When did I ever say otherwise as you claim? Is your statement above therefore not a lie?

As for your Catholic statement?


THE CTHOLICS OF AMERICA SUPPORT IRISH CATHOLIC TERRORISM AND HAVE AIDED THEM FOR YEARS


It doesn't say some Catholics, Dave. It doesn't even say the majority. It says "THE" Catholics. Now maybe I'm not as bright as you Dave. But to me, the use of the word "THE" indicates that you are talking about all Catholics. It's like anything else. When you say "THE Football League", you aren't tallking about one or two teams are you? Same as when somebody says "THE Freemasons", they aren't just talking about a couple of Freemasons are they?

About 2 years ago I was at a conference and meet a Royal Marine. We became friends and went out one night. He told be the most disturbing story about Northern Ireland. He was stationed there in the seventies. He told me that most of the riots in Northern Ireland where started by the British troops. He said that they started them to either enhance their training or because they where bored.




I have to state that I doubt the guy's credibility. If he was talking about his own Commandos instigating trouble, it's not very plausible. The Marines were stationed in Londonderry, which was a pretty hostile place already. It was hard enough to keep a lid on the place as it was, without trying to stir up more hostility.

If he was talking about elsewhere in NI, then he was referring to Army troops. The Marines are Navy and have never seen eye to eye with the Army and it's quite possible that he was carrying on the age old tradition of slagging off the Army.

I've also got a lot of family and friends who have served in Northern Ireland and even those who I would term as being the hardest in outlook weren't interested in causing trouble. All they were worried about was getting home alive. True, Northern Ireland was looked upon as a good training ground by the Armed Forces, but in reality, the Army and Marines didn't have to go out and start violence as it was already there waiting for them.

When I meet him he was a Colour Sergeant and he seemed to have the credentials. He did tell me that story but I don’t think it happened everywhere. That is just an example of someone saying something then people believing him. Truly I didn’t believe him but for someone to say something like that was disturbing even if he didn’t do it.

I searched the internet and found this site www.nireland.com... it exposes the secret world of the Orangemen.

Now again the point to this message is that anyone can make up something about anyone. Do I believe this site; of course not it was made by someone who suffers from paranoia. It just goes to show do not believe everything you read. Now Orangeman if want to continue your lies (which is a sin) please do. I make my peace with you (like a Christian would).

I'm truly surprised you are still posting here, Orangeman. Still trying to bash the Catholic Church.
The Church is no innocent. But, they do good, in their own way. (Born and raised, disillusioned Catholic here.)
Nothing you attempt to prove will bring the Church one step closer to its demise. It will remaiin longer in existance after you no longer can post here.

Well, first of all, what happened to the topic of your thread. It seems to have gone off on some tangent?

Take a look at this Dave.

www.csmonitor.com...

I abhor the abuse scandals within the churches, but you can't fling mud at one side when the other is just as bad or even worse.

I have no problem with folks speaking up about abuse whereever and whenever it occurs. But, you are not merely speaking up, you are practically raving about it. What good is it doing? In that arespect, you are preaching to the choir in that few here condone abusing children.

The priests/scout leaders/ministers who abuse children make the institutions they belong to look very bad. But, it is not the institutuion that is sinning. It is the individual.
I grant you, the cover-ups were the wrong thing to do. In this day and age, hoping something will not become public is the wrongggggg approadh to take. I'm sure the Church was just behaving the way it has in the past when some of its priest, etc. did wrong. But, you have to admit, cover-ups worked in the Catholic Church for 2000 years. Who would have thought it wouldn't work this time. From what I hav eread, the Church didn't even admit that women posseed soulds until the 1300 or 1400s


You see, I agree with you that the abuse is wrong and the coverup is wrong. But, it is also wrong to blame the millions of faithful who honor God through the Church. What have the faithful done wrong? If any should be appalled and ranting, it is those who call themselves practicing Catholics. (That would exclude me, orangie.)

One more time Dave that oath is fake. You can see I am in the knights of columbus and I never made an "oath" that says anything like that. I never made any oaths at all. Also you have an axe to grind because you keep posting several lies about the orginization I belong to.
