As part of the lead up to the Skyfest at the Rock of Cashel an RTE reporter asked some junior schoolchildren about their knowledge of St. Patrick. From their replies it was obvious that the children’s indoctrination in the superstitions of Christianity was progressing apace.
If they’re lucky, most of these students will not suffer too much from this State/Church child abuse. This is because, for the moment, Christianity is a dormant religion unlike Islam which is militantly active.
But should circumstances change in the West, should the church regain its power, the malignant seeds of superstition implanted in innocent minds will be activated and used to deadly effect just as they are in the Muslim world today.
