Thread Name: BS: St Patrick an Englishman ?
Subject: RE: BS: St Patrick an Englishman ?
Believe or not... I have a friend from England, who for some reason (probably insanity) wanted to hear Ian Paisley preach while she was on a holiday to Northern Ireland....... I'd like to point out - she went alone..... but she swears that he preached a sermon to prove that St Patrick was a Protestant.

The basis of the argument being that Patricks father was a priest, and since Catholic priests are celibate, it had to be a Protestant priest. Therefore St Patrick was a Protestant.
