“We were brainwashed from birth [in Ireland] to believe men of god were gods, when in fact they were mere boys playing god and controlling people through fear and guilt.”

    I personally like to respond to the godwhiners who think we have “removed god from all the schools and public places”… usually this statement is made along with something bad that has happened. The latest version circulating on face book is a cartoon of a little girl praying and asking god to come back. I point out that prayer is a private conversation taking place in one’s head that can take place anytime any place with or without permission or consent. So therefore, god has not been removed. Then after the pause, ohhh you mean you want to force everyone else to worship your god too? Really, people are so intellectually lazy. Someone gets cancer and they all say crap like… sending prayers.. praying for you…. I offer to do something for them.. cook, take care of kids, pets… – no fear – no guilt – no excuses.

    In Ireland, the number of priests dying of old age and retiring now comfortably exceeds the intake of the priest factories–which is either zero or very close to it.

    Unfortunately, the legacy of earlier generations is still with us here: many politicians are still brainwashed and continue to enforce the dogmas that have been passed into law and practice. It will take more time!

    ” Scotland will not be free ’till the last minister of the Church of Scotland is strangled by the last copy of The Sunday Post ”

    Surely there must be an Irish version of this?

    I hope atheist Irish press their current momentum advantage or they’ll soon be inundated with evangelicals filling the void.
