GUEST,Glasgow Green How Many BHOYS/GHIRLS (38) RE: How Many BHOYS/GHIRLS 05 Apr 07

Hi Nynia, I take it you grew up in nice safe, West of Scotland, Protestant town; went to a nice, well supplied Protestant school. You don't see yourself as a bigot, but by God you are - and the worst type: you don't even think you are one.

I too grew up in a nice Protestant town, but I was a Catholic. As a child I was regularly called a "Fenian Bastard" long before I knew what either word meant, but I knew they hated me. I was regularly beaten up, coming from school, by older boys from the Protestant school. Even adults called me names when they saw my Celtic scarf.

Don't dare talk about bigotry when you know nothing about it - have never suffered physically or mentally, from it.

I support a team that were formed to looked after the poor Irish, who were treated far worse than I for their religion. We (Celtic) were formed to look after the under dog in society. Any time there was a pit disater or fishing boat lost, Glasgow Celtic were the first to raise funds for the relatives regardless of their religion. Always helping the under dog - the East End Jews, European and Commonwealth Immigrants. But still we are vilified by the Scottish,protestant media and establishment.

There is great need in our time to get rid of the institutional sectarianism that plagues Scottish society. Rangers and Celtic never were the problem - they are both proud football teams. The real problem is the Scottish people's willingness to bury their collective heads in the sand and ignore the sectarian bigots who can ruin a 7 year-old girl,s First Holy Communion by screaming "Fenian Whore" and other obscenities. This crowd of thugs wore Rangers' colours and were off to an Orange Church Parade. What church would want this kind of scum as part of a congregation? Glasgow Rangers were not responsible for these morons - they are a proud club. This incident happened in Maryhill , Glasgow last May.
