Check this out.
Why didn't they just insert the Word "Catholic" between "Irish" and "Fest"?
Catholicism is as immutable to the Irish culture and character as the freckles on our faces.
Do you think for a nanosecond that the offering free admission at an African festival to attendees of ancient cultural dance would draw civil rights activists?
This is really getting ridiculous.
Next year pull the rug out from underneath the pagans and religious bigots. Make the whole darn thing Irish Catholic. Let them take their cans of soup to the food pantries and other places that feed the poor, like the rest of us.
Better yet, look around your own community and see who is suffering and spend your own time and money taking offering them nutritional substance or shelter. Those of you sitting on your duff at swanky hotels gorging yourself on fine foods, smitten because you've paid a penny on your tax dollars thinking this is social justice - here's a 411: Some of use the money in our own wallets to take care of the poor - something you will never know, have no right to know.
The poverty the government keeps our enslaved to, has gone on generation after generation. It isn't enough money to live on. They need more. It time we give them more.
Irish Catholics have every right and duty to pass down to the next generation our immutable Catholicity that to the next generation.
Folks, we can't be giving away our freedoms like this. Grow a spine. Think smart.
