But they don`t burn effigy`s of today`s pope, originally that is what it was all about, anti-Catholic sentiment Smile

Quote:If a few people want to parade around in silly costumes let them.


So long as they don't break any laws, yes why not.

The thing is about all these fascist/ anti-fascist, catholic/ prods groups is that they are the same type people on both sides.

Generally about 5% of any population, they need one another, the one to validate the other and vice-versa. They are symbiotic.

I do have to chuckle at those pompous quotes - statements of the bleedin' obvious couched in portentious terms. They remind of the pope's recent remark that so much tragedy would be avoided if only we would love one another....yes but we don't. We are subject to human nature which no-one has yet found any way to change. And we wouldn't agree among our ourselves what the changes should be even if we could change it.

I don't think anyone doubts their right to have such an organisation, but for one founded on the divisions in Ireland my question is 'why Harrogate'? and assuming that Mr Parkyn is local, what is it that appeals to him.

A good point there Lemmy. I've often felt that "human nature" makes a great excuse for those who don't want to make changes in their own lives our to account for their own actions. In all matters, not this one per se.

I agree with you about Lemmy's excellent points.

I agree with that too. Since around about the 1980's it seems to be the thing to say "I can't help it - it's just the way I am". I think this sort of attitude isn't helped by the fact that a good number of modern scientists seem to me to attach too much importance to the role of genes in our make-up. The shaping of a personality is about making choices and the shaping of a meaningful life is about making meaningful choices (whatever a meaningful life is! Wink.

Oh, I should have added that I still think genes are very important - but no more important than other factors like environment and upbringing, peer groups etc...
