Pádraig Ó Tuama, poet, theologian and mediator

Ireland is divided between people who worship Jesus in two slightly different ways. To solve this, let’s ask Jesus by turning to a story about him that isn’t in the Big Book of Magic Stuff.

  1. As a child and teenager I never understood the religious aspect of the partition of Ireland. At secondary school in the 70s we enjoyed missing the occasional lesson as some joker put on an Irish accent to phone our school and say they had planted a bomb. The joke wore very thin as the troubles grew worse and more bombings happened in England.
    So why couldn’t the all knowing supernatural IMF make its message so clear that all humans (who it designed, apparently) could understand what it wanted from them? Imagine all the lives that could have been saved?
    As religions pass away there will still be arguments and wars over nationalism and other human idealistic differences, but getting rid of the religious differences would be a good start.
    Unfortunately, in Northern Ireland pretty much all education is still undertaken by religious affiliation. The same happens in much of the rest of the UK. Removal of Catholic or C of E church affiliation would help.

      Definitely.

  2. The churches will fight to stop this happening, we can be sure of that.

    But on the other hand, despite the number of schools the CofE has heavy influence over, it doesn’t seem to be doing anything to stop the constant decline in the size of its congregations, so perhaps the religious element of education is just highlighting to most kids just how ridiculous it all is!
