To hear Ian Paisley speak of a understanding between Protestants and Catholics in such a way as this was a lesson I could but hope those who have misgivings here would take to heart. Theirs is a long bloody history. I really do not know all that much about all the particulars to be honest but the manner that this was put forth I found endearing.Of course I may just be completely ignorant taking all this at face value. Perhaps some of our friends from that side of the world could give us their thoughts.
Having one of SI's own "voices" put into such a history-making position truly is great news!
