 FWIW Dundee signing World cup winner Caniggia is the biggest wow signing in Scottish football. IMO

 

One of the great myths.

Cannigia signing for Dundee was indeed remarkable.  However, he's not won a World Cup.  He was suspended for a final which Argentina lost anyway.

What’s wrong with hating the head of state exactly?

She’s not exactly a protected minority, although she does like to protect some questionable characters.

Nah, you’re either telling lies or wilfully ignorant.

Next you’ll be blaming the schools 

You're obviously right here.

Substitute 'Roman Catholics' with any other minority and such scenes would rightly be regarded as absolutely outrageous.

Weirdly, though, there seems to be a tolerance in Scotland for intolerance of this nature.  Hoose Rice's attempts to draw an equivalence that doesn't exist are ludicrous and shoddy.

Personally, however, I don't think segregated schools help.  They're an unnecessary anachronism these days, that accentuate scarcely relevant difference.

I hear this a lot when it comes to catholic schools

First to bust a few myths.

They’re not only for Catholics, they’re open to all and you’re not forced to participate in anything religious 

My class had a mix of Catholics, Muslims and Sikhs. 

They do teach tolerance and respect towards people of other faiths, You’d be encouraged to show respect to all

I don’t believe they’re unnecessary, simply because in this country we have annual anti catholic marches.

If you want to discuss closing down catholic schools you’d need to first stop the hate marches 

I went to both catholic and a non dom schools, take a guess what schools I got abused in for my religion

It wasn’t something I experienced before I moved schools, but as soon as they hear what school you attend or your surname, it can make you a target for abuse.

It wasn’t nice, and it’s totally tolerated in this country.

so yeah one of the reasons catholic send the kids to catholic schools is so they don’t need to suffer the abuse they suffered.

No child deserves that.

Catholic schools are highly regarded in England - waiting lists etc - and funnily enough, no serious sectarian issues there. Why is that, if it's teh schools that are the problem, surely England would have the same issues as Scotland?

The problem isn't the schools / segregation, it's intolerance of others / ignorance and a "great wee country" scared to actually tackle the problem.

I went to a Catholic school also and although you had to do some prayers and hymns and that it was pretty mixed apart from Protestants.  Any **** in the school got absolutely tortured as a dirty smelly orange *** bassa and it was tolerated as it wasn't racist to do so like it would be if it was someone of another religion in the school.   Being a Hibee I was alright apart from being patronised  but there was definitely religious hate towards rangers and their fans, not so much jambos but there was some abuse of them from time to time also.

Thanks, but I wasn't actually harbouring any of the myths you seem to think I need busting.

The Catholic  secondary school in Dumfries, for instance - the one with the grounds in which Brother Walfrid whiles away eternity - has a non-Catholic intake of around 72%.

The bit about people being targeted for abuse on account of the school they attended, surely supports rather than challenges what I'm saying, no?

It really it is a dose of karma for the Rangers fans considering how much fun they had torturing Duffy last year.

Ramsey however has to be the most expensive and high profile failure ever to play in our league whoever at Rangers sanctioned this needs their baws toed 

Ramsey missed a penalty in a Europa league final 

Duffy was running into his own players and being made to look like a total diddy by St mirren players at parkhead 

The two players are not really comparable  . If anything Celtic could have probably been doing with Duffy being as injury prone as Ramsey

Intolerance and ignorance are of course the problem. The issue here is what in our society fans the flames of this problem ?  Faith schools that by their very nature divide children along religious lines really have no place in a supposedly modern, forward thinking Scotland. The state should only fund secular schooling.  It is not the purpose of a school to do the job of a church, synagogue or mosque.

IMO

If my tax money is to go towards giving kids a good education, then that is exactly how I want it to be spent. By them all going to a high quality schools and having a quality education. 

If you want to teach your kids about religion or bring them up following your religion, do it outwith school in your own time and at your own expense.

You do know the pope is a head of state aswell and the queen is also the head of Church of England . 
 

So where is the line drawn . Why is it perfectly ok to be against one in your opinion and not the other ? Or is it ok to be against both in your honourable opinion ?

I taught at a Catholic School in Dundee which was weird (not being one). 

It all went rather sour when I said to another teacher…

‘You don’t believe in all this bollocks do you!?’

‘Yes I do. I go to church every Sunday’.
