GUEST,Obie Help: Scottish influence in Ireland? (39) RE: Scottish influence in Ireland? 10 Dec 05

Such inflamitory statements are very unfair. Many Scots and people of Scottish descent have great sympathy for the Irish people in the struggle to control their beautiful Island. Highland Scots, both Catholic and Presbyterian suffered much the same fate as the Irish.
Religion is a red herring and not a justification for "The Troubles".
Hatred begets hatred and Paisley deserves to burn in Hell, but still two wrongs never make a right. Music seems able at times to transcend hatred and bigotry so perhaps there is hope someday after Paisley and our friend above are no longer here to fan the flames.
