Well, the Catholics consider themselves as the Irish and want to be a part of the Rep of Ireland; the Protestants want to be a part of the UK. That is more about a political division than a religious one per se. Religion doesn't play too significant role in today's Europe. But historical and political disagreements do.No , I think you have it the wrong way round. But I would be interested to hear your reasoning.The division in Belfast isnt so much about the religion, but a way more about the ethnicity.Bullshit. Check out Belfast if you want to see the effects of sectarianism.As the religions wane and the bad things of it you do not like are less relevant, so do the good things. The good things that kept the prices of everything to do very low.As religion becomes less relevant the sectarian tensions will lessen. The world will be a better place for it.In the early 20th Century, they mocked Catholics. But I think thats what I noticed that they still hate Catholics. Or maybe not Catholics but the Pope and the Catholic Church. They mock the Catholic Faith. Joe Biden is only the second Catholic President of the USA, and one was assassinated before J.F.Kennedy.
That is how I perceive it, at least. I can't offer more reasonable explanation, I am afraid.
