Im talking about the conflict in the North Alan for the millionth time. Dont jump on another posters quote to bail yourself out. If the problem all along was religion why doesnt The Good Friday Agreement mention the two different religions in anyway answer me that? Why has any potential threat to the Good Friday agreement always been a political disagreement and not one on religious grounds?
The religious aspect was ethnicity in disguise.
Have a read of this article as it explains it better than I could, and it’s from the BBC.
'The goal of the unionist and overwhelmingly Protestant majority was to remain part of the United Kingdom. The goal of the nationalist and republican, almost exclusively Catholic, minority was to become part of the Republic of Ireland.
This was a territorial conflict, not a religious one.’
