 Northern Ireland enters new power-sharing era

Not being particularly fond of politics in general happened upon C-Span and recognized the voice of Ian Paisley whose messages are available here, and many would recognize with the words; [i]"The church of Jesus Christ is largely sleeping"[/i] that is heard at the onset of The Revival Hymn.

This is a particularly momentous occasion the joining of two foes, arch-rivals into one formalized government. 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!
