A Morning Thought @ 1555



  1. They say there is a first time for everything and today it seems there are more people calling themselves Catholic in the occupied 6 than Protestant..Let that sink in Quillers....................

    1. Does not automatically equate to support or likelihood of UI. Not every adherent of Catholicism is a nationalist nor every member of a Protestant denomination is a Unionist. Where do atheists, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Pagans etc. fit into this binary divide. A more accurate barometer of support for UI is declared ethnicity; Irish, British, Northern Irish. Even then where do BAME and Eastern Europeans fit in? I haven't seen the census figures (not that they affect my life) but probably the most important metric is neither Catholic or Protestant or nationalist or unionist are the boxes ticked "neither" which would roughly correspond to the increasing Alliance and Green votes.

      Besides, is not rather ironic that those who profess to seek the unity of Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter (no space for other Irish religions and ethnicities) are the ones most salivating about "usunns " outbreeding "themmuns". More like Orban's brand of nationalism than genuine Republicanism.
