cmunic8r99: Republicans and clowns?
sendtodave: <i>Cahill's book, which could just as well be titledHow St. Patrick Saved Civilization, contends that Patrick's conversion of Ireland allowed Western learning to survive the Dark Ages. Ireland pacified and churchified as the rest of Europe crumbled. </i>I was told that the Church caused the Dark Ages.

ArkAngel: Lsherm: Ireland's Protestant minority, by contrast, denies that Patrick was a bishop or that he was sent by Rome. They depict him as anti-Roman Catholic and credit him with inventing a distinctly Celtic church, with its own homegrown symbols and practices. He is an Irish hero, not a Catholic one.Outside Ireland, too, Patrick has been freely reinterpreted. Evangelical Protestants claim him as one of their own. After all, he read his Bible, and his faith came to him in visions.Protestants can be delusional.You Catholics support a child molesting church and you call us delusional?
GAT_00: I suppose I can understand, but I still think it's hilarious that the concept of zero scared the fark out of people and all knowledge of it was suppressed for years.
