Despite mental images of a no-longer-existent Ireland that was once a bulwark of Catholicism, the Emerald Isle has become the crown jewel of secularist post-modern and post-Christian Europe. Thanks a lot, Vatican II.
Anyhow, to prove how tolerant and progressive today’s Hibernians are, Islam has become the fastest growing religious belief in Ireland, according to IBT (International Business Times).
Like tens of millions of Americans, I’m of Irish blood. Suffice it to say, it pains me to state that the Irish Republic has already past the point of no return.
Since the disastrous Second Vatican Council, Ireland has long since abandoned its Catholicism
Joining the Irish armed forces means you’ve really signed up with the United Nations’ Ministry of Defense
A huge majority of Irish citizens literally danced in the streets to celebrate killing the next generation of Irish men and women
The fond feelings many Americans of Irish lineage have in their hearts belongs more to the likes of Michaleen Oge Flynn of The Quiet Man fame, or Father Charles O’Malley crooning his way through “Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral“.
Well, maybe watching Jerry Plunkett slugging his way through German lines under the watchful eye of Father Duffy could kick-start the heart of any 5th generation Irishman pining for the Auld Sod.
But in all fairness, that Ireland never really existed. With that said, seeing how far Ireland has degraded itself to secularism, atheism and multiculturalism makes me sometimes scratch my head in disbelief.
After all, there must have been at least a kernel of truth to those tales we were raised on. But you’d never know it by looking at Ireland in the 21st century.
Case in point, as reported by Virginia Hale of Breitbart London, Ireland’s first openly homosexual prime minister, Leo Varadkar, recently bemoaned the crisis facing Europe.
No, not the hundreds of thousands of usually illiterate and unskilled so-called “migrants” from the Middle East and Africa. His complaint is with those pesky Europeans who have the bad manners to love their respective nations.
As reported by Hale;
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has declared that the crisis facing the EU is not mass immigration, but European resistance to importing large numbers of migrants from the third world.
“This isn’t so much a migrant crisis as it is a political crisis,” the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister) said of disagreement within the EU over how to deal with illegal immigrants arriving to the continent.
“Europe needs migration,” he insisted, claiming the belief that hundreds of thousands of migrants from the world’s poorest countries arriving in boats and storming the EU’s frontiers is a problem that has been invented by right-wing parties for political gain.
Asserting that “the number of migrants crossing into Europe is a fraction of what it was 3 years ago”, Varadkar said the real issue facing the continent is the rise of patriotic parties which are opposed to endless mass migration from the Global South and demands that every EU country be required to take part in resettlement.
“But we have a political crisis because of the fact that anti-immigration and populist parties have been very electorally successful in Italy and central [and] eastern Europe.
Interestingly enough, Varadkar is also the second Irish PM not to be full-blooded Irish.
Éamon de Valera (his father was Spanish) was Ireland’s PM on three different occasions during the 1940s and 1950s. Varadkar’s father is native to Bombay, India.
With unemployment on the Emerald Isle headed towards the stratosphere, the Irish Ministry for Social Protection has mailed out thousands of notices to those still on Government Punt should literally seek employment elsewhere, as reported by The Independent (of London, England) and the Indian-Muslim centered news portal Two Circles both on Dec. 13, 2013.
With joblessness actually improving to a still unbelievably high 12.5 percent, the central government has sent 6,000 notifications to those drawing welfare payments that they should consider finding a job overseas.
