NORAID's mission statement declares that:
1. Irish Northern Aid is an American based membership organization that supports through peaceful means, the establishment of a democratic 32-county Ireland.
2. Our Strategy: To develop a broad coalition of supporters for Irish Unity through organizing and educating the public, our members, political leaders, and the media.
3. To support the current Peace Process, including the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement which was endorsed by the vast majority of the Irish people.
4. To support a process of National reconciliation and equality for all the citizens of Ireland.
5. Membership: In keeping with the principles of the 1916 Proclamation, Irish Northern Aid is open to anyone who shares these values.

That's their claim, son.

They lie.

They actually funneled funds into the IRA and similar groups, and have been declared a Terrorist Organisation in Ireland.

NORAID
You can huff and puff all you like but facts are facts
NORAID is not affiliated with the American republican party.
Even if it has a few republican from here in this org, it doesn't mean it is supported by the republican party.

From what I gather about NORAID it is mostly the Irish Catholics in the Boston area that support this group. But it isn't supported by
our republican party there either.

The creator would never need an excuse, he is Holy. Maybe you should study the meaning of being omnipotent etc.

An omnipotent, omnibenevolent entity does not exist, otherwise he would do something about all the human suffering out there. Instead we inhabit a universe which acts exactly as you would expect without a god, some and lucky, some have a life of tragedy. As the saying goes nature is cruel.

Another baseless atheist claim.


Wrong again as usual something from your book you should've read

Simple-minded god

"I am jealous over you ... I fear your minds be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
– 2 Corinthians 11.2-3.

"I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace, and create EVIL. I the LORD do all these things."
– Isaiah 45.7.

Puerile God

"If ye will not give glory unto my name saith the LORD ... I will spread dung upon your faces."
– Malachi 2.2,3.

Making "every thought captive."

"For the weapons of our warfare are casting down imaginations ... and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."
– St Paul, 2 Corinthians 10.4,5.

The cost to humanity of fifteen centuries of Christian savagery – of hundreds of millions of lives brutalised and truncated, sacrificed to war, torture, pogrom, burning, pestilence and plague – is incalculable.

Christianity is the worst disaster in human history

NORAID brought freedom in the same way that Boston runners were liberated from their limbs.

Yes and terrorists have been know to lie.

The NORAID version of piece involves financing gun and explosive purchases with US funding. This guns and explosive are used to KILL people

Is this the sort of freedom and piece you approve of?

Honey their actions have been condemned not only by the British government but the US government.

Irish republican party – US Republican Party – different organisations. For the most part all they have in common is the word republican in the title

You err, or should I say lie? King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. You do not understand the"operaton of God" nor do you believe our history, present state and future as told by scripture. This eternal suffering you atheists are always complaining about is a self made hardship as hell is simply separation from the God you fail to have faith in. The one who gave you breath.

"You can huff and puff all you like but facts are facts"

I see there was one republican who was supporting NORAID.
I also see that under the law here now (the patriot act), if he were to support them he could face 15 years federal prison time.
