Obama tells Northern Ireland its Catholic and Protestant insitutions are divisive
Comparing religious schools to segregation in the American South, Obama told the Irish they should not have separate schools for Catholics and Protestants in the historically divided region.
Obama referred to painful episodes in American history including the Civil War and segregation to drive home his point that separations can be harmful to society and that unity is better.
However, President Obama omitted the fact that even in the United States, divisions remain. There remain Catholic and Protestant schools, as well as secular for example. Would Obama break these schools?
President Obama has been one of the most hostile presidents in history to the Catholic Church. His healthcare plan features a provision that directly affronts Catholic (and all Christian) moral teaching, and despite the protections promised by the First Amendment, he insists on imposing his will on all Christians.
At his order, Catholics are expected to bend the knee and pay for contraceptives, abortifacients, and ultimately abortions, despite their incredible moral cost.
In Northern Ireland, Christian education is entirely laudable, be it Catholic or Protestant, if it properly forms the mind of a child. Moral Christians do not murder, do not discriminate, and do not impose their inhuman will upon others.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Obama.
