Martin McGuinness denounces some evils in society

Martin McGuinness has explained that “There are a number of tremendous evils in society. One is racism, the other is sectarianism, and I think an evil also is partitionism.” He was speaking at a meeting of the First and Deputy First Ministers with Taoiseach Brian Cowen, Irish Foreign Affairs minister Michael Martin and other cabinet members at the University of Ulster in Londonderry. They were discussing the current financial crisis.

Unsurprisingly Mr. McGuinness has drawn some criticism from across unionism. It might also be interesting if Mr. McGuinness could expand for us on his views of the evil of sectarianism.
