Nice thing to say, as apparently you are suffering from cancer.
This is a very Strange and Weird statement coming from a fellow cancer sufferer????
I am certain that of all of the poor individuals, now suffering from terminal cancer in Belfast city cancer unit, would be horrified at your comments...

I have noticed what you have also just done in my last post, even though this post was about the murder of an innocent child and the savage murder of an innocent father of eight!

EVIL IS ALWAYS REVISITED BY LIFES REVENGE, IS THIS A GOD?

GOOD NIGHT!!!

Fact is senseless murdering went on by both ridiculous sides
You are correct senseless murdering did go on, in fact every murder was senseless. I have never advocated violence nor agreed with it. EVER.
However I will not sit back and listen to supposed "loyalists" glorify in one hand the murder of innocence, and in the other hand deny that it even occurred...
They do not like the brutal truth, however I feel I have a duty to keep reminding them, of what there also actions done to both our communities.
For years because of the ANTI-IRA media both in the U.K. and Ireland they have constantly blamed the IRA for the murder of innocence, whilst ignoring the often savage and inhumane murders of Irish Catholic innocence.
In fact the loyalist paramilitaries were to murder more innocence than the IRA ever did.
If your happy to stay out of it that is your businness, fair play however it is not up to you to preach or to tell another how to conduct there life.
If you do not wish to partake why make self-centred comments? if you do not care, why make these comments, furthermore these comments could also be offensive to some...
So if you do not care, simply stay out of it...Simple

GOOD NIGHT...

You gots issues man. Let it be.
Who killed more who didn't yada yada yada do Ira people not deny murders. Are you trying to say one side was slightly less wrong than other, laughable. K
You have no reasonable argument man.
If everyone let everyone be, there'd be problem.
You're on a forum talking to people you don't know, spitting out useless age old stuff, how does its help?
It doesn't, the only way to help is to be positive and embrace the differences.

It is you that has issues pal, one serious one which is apparent, you are constantly saying you do not care, yet you are posting your views and opinions.???

I was not talking about the actions of PARAMILITARIES, in reference to denial. I was talking about supposedly ordinary civilians who come onto this forum, whilst also constantly spewing out often sexualised bile about the death of IRISH innocents, whilst they also deny certain evil occurrances ever happened.

If you wish to sit on the proverbial fence were some times you can get a sore a-se, that is your business and fair play.
However as I said before some people are more passionate in what they beleive in, then there are some people who are more laxative to the point of boring. We are all different.

I have lived up here my entire life including the 40 years of the troubles, until you have done same I suggest with respect that maybe your points of view is very shallow and insulting. You have not lived beside these people, who I must say, are not all sectarian, bigoted, and full of hate, although it has to be said, a high percentage are....

I will always, voice my opinion in the right manner, that is me pal, and trying to embrace I have tried, and as per ususal the insults and attempted bullying have been directed at me.
This is another reason why I have stuck around, this forum. I hate bullies.
There is a right wing gang on this website who have dressed themselves up as "LOYALISTS" and they have constantly bullied those who have different views, even first time users in the hope of scaring them away, of which they often succeed, they also spew out veiled threats.
In my opinion, these cowards have to be challenged, I have never been afraid of such people, if you wish to sit back as I said, that is your opinion, and fair play.
But please do not dictate to others, who may I say have more spirit in there hearts and minds...

HAVE A GOOD DAY, ROB...

Numerous Innocent Irish Catholics, whilst walking home from a night out, were to be abducted, then binded, tortured, then mercifully killed, by so-called "LOYALIST" paramilitarys.
After abduction these poor innocent people, would be taken to "ROMPER ROOMS" usually situated in dingy flea ridden bars/pubs in the Protestant heartland, of the Shankill Road or nearby..
Below are two separate definements, of a sexual sadist or sadists...
1.An Individual or Individuals with a sexual sadism disorder have persistant fantasies in which sexual excitement results from the binding of an unknown person, then inflicting psychological or physical suffering(humilation and terror) onto there victim or victims.
Once this process has begun, it is very difficult for the perpertrators or perpertrators to stop, usually resulting in the torture and deaths of many more victims, which was to give the name serial killing or serial killer-killers
(The name serial killer, would be derived by law and enforcement USA, after the activities of such people were to become very prominent, in the latter part of the 20th century)..
2.Sexual Sadism, involves illegal activities, such as abduction, torture, leading to murder. The merciful death of the victim or victims, will often and in mosts cases bring sexual excitement to the perpertrator or perpertrators..
The loyalist evils on this web-site, pay homage and hero worship to sexual deviants and sadists and serial killers....
plently of irish roman catholic priests so called men of god loved 2 indulge in this kind of sick shit although they didnt kill their victims they may as well have these ballroots so called men of god had their own wee romper rooms usally in the grounds or facilities of the catholic church how many 1000s of children did this happen 2 all over ireland? the true number and extent we will never ever know but it happenend but sure we will we all just convienently forget about it sure just like the cardinals and heirarchy of this so called church like 2 do filth is all around us its not just 1 sided ffs

You are talking about peadophilla. Which is different to sexual sadism and sexual sadists, whom receive sexual pleasure from torturing, then killing there unknown victim.
Two different sexual attractions, although both equally sick.
Peadophilla is were people are attracted to children, and then sickly take advantage of these same children to satisfy there sick sexual urges.
Furthermore Peadophilla is across the board, just ask the recent hardline unionist former rubgy player, or the Protestant paramilitaries who ran Kincora, plus there has been numerous Protestant individuals, who have rightly gone to prison for sexual offences aganist children, as well as Catholics.
This is another falicy, coming from within bigoted unionism, similar to, "that all catholics are or were supporters of the IRA".
The Catholic church has taken a battering and rightly so, and I believe the sick folk who helped to sweep it under the carpet, should also be sent packing, or even imprisoned with the feckin key thrown away, along with the sick priests who have committed these foul crimes.
However it has to said, the people within the Catholic church, who on a daily basis, do what it says, on the christian tin, far out number the foul feckers who abused young innocent children and the foul feckers who then covered it up.

oh i know as i said filth is all around us both sides not just 1 sided glad you agree but in the catholic churchs case its not just an irish problem its gone worldwide cases in in third world places such as south america and africa and the phillipines never will find out the true exent of what has went on and is still ongoing i know those young catholic fellas only crime was taking the wrong route home or walkin a girlfriend home from a night out or whatever but these were mostly grown men or young adults they hadda choice in most cases as 2 weather or not 2 venture a certain way they knew the dangers many places were widely known as no go areas i know still no excuse 4 what became of them but they knew the risk manys a time myself ive taken a short cut home from town in the past witha few pints in me and got into a few scrapes just 4 trying 2 get home a bit faster my fault i knew the risks luckily in my case it wasnt more than few digs or boots thrown but i knew the risk but still went ahead with it in in these poor childrens cases they had no choice they were supposed 2 be in a place were they felt safe and cared for and as far as they knew there was never any risk whatsoever weather it was in the catholic church or say kincoras childrens home

You should see what he said on another thread:

Police from the RoI are all innocent civillians while police north of the border are all guilty and deserve death. However if those nice guys in the IRA killed anyone in the gardai, they'd have a hearing and throw out that member for being bad.

Search as long as you like, there isn't a true christian on earth.

E.g you try to justify murder because you covet your neighbour's house and worship the craven image of irish reunification.

Also, the POPE is one of the foul feckers who covered things up. He REFUSED to let paedophiles resign as priests.

According to catholic dogma the pope is gods word on earth so that means you god supports paedophiles too.

Hi SEAN OR IS IT ROB, whats the craic, I see that you have given yourself a good Gaelic/Irish/Catholic username today.......Fair play!

If you do not think that there is a GOD, fair play, do not be getting your knickers in a twist.....LOL
It is more than just religion up here, just happens the two different communities, are from different creeds however the ironic thing is we are both supposedly to be christian.
Simply put..... one side wants to remain British, whilst the native Irish who are a mostly from a catholic background, want to be seen as Irish, and would love our island to be united.

The British contingent are originally from the lowlands of scotland, many were sent to Ireland, by cruel, dominate English lairds, to act as there slaves and gofers. However with the change of time and English help, the British/scottish contingent began to pillage land from the native Irish all over the island of Ireland. As you are probably aware the British came to an agreement with Michael Collins and co, because of IRA actions, that 26 counties would become the republic of Ireland, whilst the 6 counties would remain in British hands.
This was a crafty move by the British because of the demographics of the 6 counties, the majority of the population of the 6 six counties were to be British/scottish, thus they were to then hold the power for the next 60 years, whilst also causing great discrimation aganist the remaining lower count population, native Irish within the 6 counties.

Although these demographics are beginning to change as the catholic native Irish population become more larger in size. This happening has caused great insecurity and fear within the British/Protestant community, thus the recent protests...

Unfortunately and within all probability before it is all finally settled, maybe 20, 50, 100 years from now, many more innocence will die, on both sides. SAD, but I think unfortunately TRUE...

Anyway chillout SEAN, or is it ROB?
P.S. One my sons, is called Sean, fine lad, sports crazy, takes after his auld man, whenever I was his age, which was a long time ago, I might add. lol.
