    Portugal to "suspend" four Catholic public holidays for 5 years.

    Post by Campbell Brodie on Wed 9 May 2012 - 17:01

    In a bid to get the economy moving, Portugal has been in talks with the Vatican about which 4 religious holidays to cut from the current 14. I wonder if Spain will go down this route as well...they have about 75 public holidays a year! (Well, it seems like it...) lol!

    Strange innit, it's only Ireland that REALLY celebrates their patron Saint's day. George, Andrew and David...nobody gives a hoot.

    I think the "Irish" in America have made it into the massive commercialised event it has been this past 30 odd years.

    Its only the "Irish for a day" wannabies and pissheads/students that celebrate it. Anyone with a family might go to a parade and then home after.

    Nationalise all churches. Use them as schools and hostels. Break up all the pews and give it away as firewood. Sell off church property and use the proceeds for counselling all the kids they abused. Lock the pope in with a gay masochistic rapist and let him feel the pain that he has aided and abetted over the last 25 years. Even now, he is silencing some of the few good priests over here because they have been critical of the way the Catholic Church has refused to help investigations into the abuse.

    Sorry for the rant, but somebody should shoot the kent!!

    Hang on a second, not that I agree with Catholics coz I don't but you were having a big dig about us having a dig at Muslims. as was far less severe. Not all Catholics are child molesters in the same way that not all Muslims are terrorists.

    All religious heirarchies like the Vatican are Fascists.
    I am not saying all Catholic lay people are child molesters...far from it.
    But here in Ireland they have told certain priests that anything they write must be cleared by them,and if they don't like it the Vatican won't let it be published in the national papers...that has Fascistic tendencies all over it.
    Again TD my ire isn't aimed at the flock but the sheperd,so to speak.

    Was reading about that gang. They were trafficking the girls for other perverts as well as abusing themselves. Absolutely they were racist, they insisted the girls were white. Lock them into the next BNP meeting, that should do the trick.

    You would rather have a Nazi run your country?
    After all your country sacrificed fighting Nazism you would give a scumbag like that your vote?
    That man hasn't changed a bit from his NF days and he still denies the holocaust,he thinks a large proportion of the British population are second class,including Blacks,Asians,Gays,Jews,Catholics and he has views thta women are inferior to men.
    Don' let the new image and populist crap fool you,thats what Fascists do...change image and language to suit their warped views.
    God help England if that lot ever got power.
