If anything, it's the lovey dovey, conciliar ecumania that has been a failure.
I haven't seen a lot of "lovey dove" shown to the Protestants by the Catholics in Northern Ireland. maybe I'm missing something.

So, what do you think of this type of project as a means of making the situation better?

I'm against hatred of any kind against my fellow man. Catholics shouldn't hate prots and want to kill them, but should be charitable and pray for their conversion to the one true Faith. That said, not everything should be "let's all just get along" and kumbaya like. We can be charitable without compromising.

I agree.

The only thing embarrassing here is your consistently shallow attempt at being the contrarian.

No American here is pretending that they are a victim group at all.

Yea, you are.

The fight for independance is against the evil, corrupt, masonic, English empire who's entire existance stands on the bloody backs of generations of peoples deemed "less then" themselves. They are the ones who gave up ther faith. They are the ones with the priests and bishops who sold out, except for the few great martyrs they have on their side. But for the most part, the entire group capitulated.

The Irsih are the ones who were slaughted for their faith. A faith they never gave up despite everything taken away from them, including their own language. Protestantism is a cult that sends its followers to hell. It is full of lies and therefore in opposition to the truth found in the one, true, faith.

While I have sympathy for those born into Protestantism, and hope they convert, this does not change the fact of where the lines are drawn in the battle field.

It seems to me that the Catholics in Ireland have to be prepared to be murdered, or worse (i.e. have their loved ones murdered) if they're going to start loving their enemies.

There are Catholics who dread a reunited Ireland because it might mean the extermination of people who were thought to be too sympathetic to the loyalist side.  Who knows how a united Ireland under socialism would treat them?

Is Ireland even Catholic anymore? I have much more in common with the Irish Saints than most Irishmen do, because I'm a Catholic (one who actually believes the faith).

So if this is about truth, and anti-lovey-dovey-ecumenism, and justice, then it's about the Catholic Faith, and not so much about Irish or English. St. Kevin and St. Thomas More and St. Maron are the same family in Heaven, whereas many Irish and English seem to be headed together down the path of apostasy and indifference.

Having an ethnic or historical association with a Catholic culture won't save an Irishman, only the Catholic Faith can.

(Not saying you would disagree, I just don't see why there is any emphasis on Irish vs English at all).
