Malachi O’Doherty and Robbie Meredith have been trying to raise the standard debate on religion belief and disbelief in Northern Irelnad with their Get Thee Behind Me, Jesus show in Derry and Larne recently. Amongst the most interesting questions they ask, is:
“whether Protestants and Catholics, with their very different religious conditioning, arrive at different perspectives on the world, even after they’ve come out of their religious background and shaken off the indoctrination – if they ever do”. Shades of Russell’s Why I’m Not A Christian (the book), particularly his essay on On Catholic and Protestant Skeptics?
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
