Although Northern Ireland has been relatively peaceful for quite a while now, it looks like TFG has some words of advice on, um, how to keep The Troubles form breaking out again or something:
Likening religious schools to segregation–a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South–President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division.
You know, I can’t help but think that this message of interfaith tolerance–albeit in a slightly altered form–might have a little more resonance in, say, certain parts of London. Or Cairo. Or Damascus.
