  • We don't need no stinking Irish.
  • The Irish wholeheartedly support abortion for the English.

  • "We knew we couldn't sit back and live in a country where unborn babies were being violently destroyed every day," says Bernadette Smyth, founder of Precious Life, a Northern Irish pro-life group


    Yes, because when I think of the top guardians of the sanctity of life, my mind naturally goes immediately to Northern Ireland.

    I should add, this comic doesn't work when the colorist fails to make the guys gingers.
  • I was expecting a screaming match in the Irish parliament (again) after seeing it on some American news a few years ago - I've been assuming that's all the Irish parliament does is yell incoherently at each other about how disorderly the other side is being and they're baby killers and I'm not etc.
  • Smingleigh: The Irish wholeheartedly support abortion for the English.



    Most of the people I know who are actually from Ireland are proud that they are Irish, but in the rare instances they do speak of England have never said anything negative about it. On the contrary actually.

    We've been watching too many movies.

  • The emerald isle has been predominantly catholic since St. Patrick drove all the snakes from Ireland 1500 years ago. In all of that time; Ireland and the irish have been invaded, subjugated and persecuted by the Protestant/ Anglican authorities. That hasn't stopped the Irish from supporting catholicism. I don't think a little thing like abortion will change that either.

    / I don't care if a young lady chooses to get an abortion; it is her choice; just saying that Ireland will probably go with the church on this one

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one.
  • If we are ever going to get our country back, we must close the border with Ireland and deport all the drunken, violent Paddies that infest our cities today.

    Except the hot redheads.

    Hot redhead thread!

    How many snakes were there in Ireland before Paddy went there? What sorts were they?

    I happen to live near a ferry-port that serves southern Ireland - a significant number of travelers to the mainland are visibly pregnant. Those returning, less so.

    I think there's a saint in Britain driving fetuses from Irish ladies.
  • Hell, for that you can just watch my Uncle Dan this thanksgiving.

    This is in Northern Ireland which isn't Catholic, it's part of the UK.

    Me too!
  • Of course the Irish Church opposes abortion. If it were legal, there would be fewer kids to beat abd bugger.

    As you probably are aware; that, in all likelihood, is a farie tale told by monks in the 11th-15th centuries to explain why Ireland didn't have snakes. It is more likely that Ireland never had snakes to begin with.

    Like I said; I don't care if a young lady has an abortion; but, Ireland has gone with the church so long that they will probably go with the church this time to

    / think about it a different way; you can figure out which ones put out by paying attention to the comings and goings around the ferry

  • I wonder how many women would choose to keep the kids if they knew that churches would actively pitch in to help her in her time of need...


    Wait, that'd be following Christ's example. Nevermind.

    Technically, both the republic of Ireland and northern Ireland are both part of the UK. The difference is, the republic has autonomy. The reason England hasn't granted autonomy to northern Ireland is out of concern for the protestant population.

    FTFA: "In the south, the Catholic Church held sway over the majority of political decisions through the 20th century; but a series of scandals involving the sexual abuse of children by priests has weakened an institution that was already facing challenges to its authority in a less reverential age."

    Don't know about you, but I don't think I'd be handing my kid off to a priest for babysitting.

    I love to watch UK politics. They yell, they throw stuff at each other, and sometimes a brawl breaks out. A British Farker once suggested that footage from Parliament should be watched with Yakety Sax playing
