Several hundred people have linked arms to encircle Belfast City Hall during a five-minute prayer vigil in response to trouble over the past two weeks in Northern Ireland. The event on Saturday morning was attended by several churchmen. Organisers said afterwards that they were delighted with the turn-out.
They said that it sent out a powerful message that people supported peace. A whistle sounded to begin and end the short vigil. Andrew Masters, who was one of the organisers, said: “The last 10 days have reminded us that while we have come so far we still have a journey ahead of us. “We wanted to do something really positive and just pray for peace and hope.” The former Methodist Church president Harold Good, who witnessed IRA decommissioning in 2005, was one of several clergy who attended. He said the time for ending street protests had “long past”.
Really? So this meddling Methodist has decided that legal street protests are no longer tolerable? How very liberal. Good is also the SAME guy that the IRA chose to “witness” their alleged “putting beyond use” of their arsenal. He had their confidence. Good has also conspicuously failed to tell the public what he saw…we have to take it on faith.
Rather than holding hands and chanting Kumbaya, these well intentioned clowns should realise that the road to hell is PAVED with good intentions. The truth is that they no moral legitimacy since they support terrorists in government.
