  1. Comment on Flickers of Hope as churches remain in the firing line

    Interesting peace in my link below, it seems that on-going attacks on a Presbyterian church, cumulating in the latest attack. The painting of the church sign green, white and orange, is not sectarian just vandalism well according to shinners and the PSNI.

    Yet there was no mention of sectarianism given in Chris’ first link above. It is as the PSNI described it a “suspicious fire” at a Roman Catholic church in Whitehead. However, the poster a Sinn Fein supporter is claiming the PSNI described event “suspicious fire” as sectarian?

    Is there mixed messages form the Shinners here at slugger an in Lurgan. The PSNIs “suspicious fire” attack is now sectarian according to the shinners on slugger and the other attack the painting of a Presbyterian Church sign in republican colours is defined as vandalism?

    An shinner Ireland of equals.

    Isn’t “alleged” a much over and under emphasized phrase by republicans.

    Time after time republicans remind us that you can’t make allegations about their dear leader as there’s no proof???

    Then as if by magic “alleged” can be trotted out to defame an innocent Protestant civilian and IRA victim in south Armagh.

    I think we should call “alleged” the “Gerry at Slugger rule”!!!

    In this season of good will I wonder if the shinner members and supporters here on slugger, could inquire as to the health specificity the broken wrist a member of Sinn Fein member suffered when he fell off the roof of Newcastle Orange Hall in 2007. I’m sure we would all agree this was a direct attack on the small Protestant Unionist Loyalist community in Newcastle.

    Has he fully recovered and Is he still a member?

    Did he or Sinn Fein apologise and replace the Union Flag he removed???

    Did he ever get prosecuted for criminal damage?

    Yesterday a simple cross to memorial to Willie Clark a Protestant murdered by the IRA at Mullaghbane in South Armagh was destroyed again. Family members travelled to place flowers at the memorial only to find that the top of the simple wooden cross had been broken off and taken away. The top section of the cross had a small brass plate engraved with his name, date and saying that he was murdered.

    Mr Clark was a Protestant civilian who was working on a digger in an adjacent field when republicans dragged him of the machine and executed him on the spot in 1977. It was part of the republicans ethnic cleansing of the area.

    This is close to the Irish republican Ti Chulainn Centre complete with a large IRA memorial. This is the same centre that children were photographed in paramilitary uniform holding weapons.

    An alleged republican centre for peace, so I’m lead to believe???

    I would also like to add to the list the memorial to 3 Scottish soldiers. The 3 young soldiers were off duty and lured away from a city centre bar by two women and then murdered by the provos at Ligoneil. The memorial has again been vandalized, for the fifth time in recent days.

    It is only proper that we condemn those who intimidate and carry out sectarian damage both physical and in words.

    And to carry on Chris’ theme, we must not forget the isolated and small Protestant communities around Northern Ireland who are bearing the brunt of the sectarian antics of republicans at this time of year, and indeed all year round.

  7. Comment on Rangers’ Downfall and long tail journalism…
    on 21 November 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Here is a wee tune for Phil 4 names.

    4 names news of Rangers FC’s demise was somewhat greatly exaggerated.

    Anyone want to buy a book to hold open their outhouse door or maybe you can use it toilet paper, because that is all it is good for now. Phil 4 names has the perfect book.

    I hope Phil 4 names book is not the book responsible for the “Downfall” of its publishers.

    However it would be prophetic, You can find 4 names book as always in the fiction section, that is if anyone has the balls to stock it.

  8. Comment on Local newspaper reports that Mid-Ulster Christian Helpline can “cure” homosexuals
    on 10 October 2012 at 9:50 am

    have these nuns nailed where the increase in homosexuality in men is coming from?

    “A bizarre new video linking women’s use of birth control pills and other chemical contraceptives to an “increase” in homosexual activity among men is making the blogosphere rounds”.

    “Produced by a group of Roman Catholic nuns calling themselves the Children of Mary order, “You Deserve to Know the Truth: Contraception” pairs some puzzling statistics with generic clip art. The often unintentionally humorous, low-budget clip also cites a 1970s-era study in which a male monkey became “confused” when female monkeys were injected with birth control drugs, and began to have “sexual interactions” with other males in the tribe”.

    ‘Tragedy’ avoided as Belfast bomb found

    A substantial viable device found during a security alert in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast was primed to KILL, police have said.

    “Once again the community of North Belfast have been disrupted and the lives of residents put at risk by an element intent on causing as much LOSS OF LIFE and disruption as they can.”

    He said those responsible showed “A CALLOUS DISREGARD for the lives of everyone in our community”.

    “I am sure the residents in the area and the wider public will be just as angry as I am about this discovery. They have EVERY RIGHT TO BE OUTRAGED however what we need now is information about who left the device there in the first place.”

    “This is a residential area and we could have been looking at serious tragedy here. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT THIS DEVICE WAS INTENDED TO MURDER”.

    Ch Insp Andrew Freeburn.

    I’m glad the only bang heard in the republican part of Ardoyne is the bang from a big drum; at least a big drum has never blown anyone up.
