Subject: RE: BS: Grit your teeth, the PIRA boys are out
Paisley's dictum - "A Protestant Country for a Protestant People" has always struck me as a prime example of apartheid. Add to that the pervasive control of the system by the Orange Order, and I don't see how anyone could rationally argue it was not an apartheid system. I recognize that it may be harder for many to see simply because the color factor isn't there.

This has been a good discussion, and I thank yoo, Fionn, for starting it, but now it is perhaps time to move on to something else.
