(Biz Pac Review) –The Catholic media is up in arms over comments President Obama made during a speech while in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit. Obama made what is described as â€œan alarming call for an end to Catholic education,â€ in spite of the fact that it is considered â€œa critical component of the Church.â€
In front of an audience of about 2,000 young people, including many Catholics, Obama claimed that Catholic education divides people and blocks peace, according to the Scottish Catholic Observer.
â€œIf towns remain dividedâ€”if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we canâ€™t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to hardenâ€”that too encourages division and discourages cooperation,â€ Obama said.
Those darn Catholics and their terrorist summer camps.
