On the surface this all sounds good, BUT

Condoms provide the safest protection against STI’s if used properly.

How is this going to be percieved, and recieved, by most of the Roman Catholic community, and some of the Protestant community.

Or have attitudes towards Condoms changed since I left Ireland. ???

One of our Famous Premiers, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, made this statement in Parliament  "the Government has no place in the bedrooms "  you could also say the same for Religion.

More deaths and misery has been committed  " in the name of religion" than any other cause.

There is nothing wrong with "most" religions, it's the [censored] that believe in, and twist it, that causes the problems.
Especially the ones who believe that the others who do not believe as they do, will "BURN IN HELL".

Religion is man made excuses for their way to God , The bible is the inspired word of God  ,read it and  then be directed as to how it  teaches . There is no one religion mentioned in the bible . I'm thankful for at least one thing each day I wake up ,breath, means He's given me another day to live . We don't answer for religions we all have a choice  believe in God or don't.

just to get back to the short strand. anyone remember the short strand the way it used to be ? b4 it was rebuilt. spend many aday playing around it as some of my m8 from school came from down there. streets i remember was thompson st, anderson st, clyde st, beechfield st, woodstock st. alot of folk from there moved to downpatrick and over to twinbrook around the years between 1972 and 1974. plenty went to craigavon as well.
