DUP man: “No Pope here…”

Interesting piece in the Irish News about Wallace Thompson, Nigel Dodds’ Special Advisor at Enterprise got himself into an hour long row with the callers on Joe Duffy’s Liveline phone in show when he called the Pope the Anti Christ… Not subtle, but that’s what it says in the Westminster Confession… It seems the ‘we’ refers to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Protestant Society of which he is secretary, and not the DUP. It’s not a distinction that is that’s going down well with Sinn Fein, the SDLP and the Alliance.
