GUEST,Ireland Are lyrics offensive (69* d) RE: Are lyrics offensive 30 Sep 02

Fields of Athenrye (?) is a song that is anti-English, but it is about how people were sent to Australia both Catholic and Protestant met the same fate, so I understand the anti-English songs, but hate the way people hijack it for political reasons.

I have said the Wolftones bug the *&"^ out of me before, but when I consider what has been said about the songs you sing and why, it has changed my opinions a bit.

I agree that the anti-catholic songs of the orange order are very offensive, it shows an ignorance and ingratitude that does nothing but stir it up.

I know I started from an Irish perspective I'm interested in songs that offend in general, I do not want to relate every thing to Ireland.

Religous songs can be pretty near the knuckle.
