Hi lovely! Very glad to see you. Things have been massively strange since you left. Finished the degree, bought a flat, got married, just started a new job a few weeks ago. Pretty much everything is different!

How have you been?

Don't make us take off our belts and strap you silly again. Go pull you pod over your "portfolio."
Typical Americanized crap, I don't see they have altar girls in Vatican City. I'm too old to play the belts and strap you need to stick with the 8 yr old boys.

Close, but wouldn't it be more accurate to say
"Some American Catholics offended by Obama's remarks about segregated schools and housing in Northern Ireland."
There doesn't seem to be much (any?) UK sourced outrage. I'm a news and commentary addict, but would have missed the whole teaset-ready tempest if not for folks here directing me to US based niche commentary.
Your right. Thanks for the correction. And the story should have a photo of Paco in shorts and a wife beater sittin in a lawn chair in the front yard in Hilliard drinkin a Schlitz.

Proof that tranp isn't a terribly observant "news and commentary addict":

"So the President of the United States flies half way around the world to inject himself into sectarian politics with a bizarre attack on religious education. Perhaps next week he’ll go to Israel and have a pop at kosher food.“If only we could live in a world where everyone eats pork…”"

US President undermines Catholic schools after Vatican Prefect praised them

The US President has made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland in spite of the fact that Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education was 'a critical component of the Church.’

President Barack Obama repeated the oft disproved claim that Catholic education increases division in front of an audience of 2000 young people, including many Catholics, at Belfast’s Waterfront hall when he arrived in the country this morning.

The US politician made the unfounded claim despite a top Vatican official spelling out the undeniable good done by Catholic education in a speech in Glasgow on Saturday and in his homily at Mass on Friday.

Are you really that dense? The man said nothing of the sort. I can't figure out if you are so stupid that you can't read that speech and understand it (a real possibility) or that you are so defensive over your religion that it overrides your intellect (most likely).

“Meh.”

This is rather my point, that aside from some pretty mild mehs from a commentator and a Scottish Catholic news site, there's not much compelling evidence that anyone here is much offended.

It seems to be a US thing, the being taken aback by the speech.

I see two articles and a video from over there that support my position. They're a hell of a lot more qualified to judge than you, little girl.

And for good reason...the speech was aimed at the US audience while cloaked in the alleged problems of Ulster.
As I said before, US presidents make speeches that address their own and/or the US's agendas, no matter where in the world they're speaking. Neither Obama nor this nation have a vested interest in the alleged effects of religious education on Northern Irish unity. Before 1995, it was a different story.

Except that there has been a massive reaction to the speech in the UK and specifically N. Ireland. There are masses of written and broadcast reactions to the speech from in country.

...

Just not negative ones.

I don't think you can claim offense on the behalf of folks out here and then claim that they're not targeted by the same speech you credit them with finding offensive. It seems a rather strange, circular attempt to find some level on which to be outraged.

It's similar to the concept of collateral damage. Surely such an academic heavyweight as you can figure that out.

Have you noticed that every time you show up at a dinner party how quickly that phrase starts getting tossed around like a football in Wisconsin in mid-October?

RCC needs to segregate the closeted male homosexual priests from the altar boys, pronto.

It would be a good thing too if Obama were to do something similar; separate the closeted male homosexuals in his administration from America's sphincter in Washington DC.
