Paddy’s Day on April Fools

St Patrick wears a dunces hat

So you’ve heard about this dilemma that the Catholic church are facing? It’s a clash of dates between between an early Easter bunny day and Paddy’s day (2008). The next available day for Pat was April 1st, but they’ve decided that isn’t suitable either. If you ask me, April Fools day is spot on. I don’t know why we celebrate a man who was one of the first missionaries to come over to us fine pagans, and infect us with such heavy-handed Christianity. He was one of the first bishops in a church that continues to interfere with our lives in these seemingly dark dark ages.

I know I hold some unpopular views, and this collection of thoughts is right up there; I’ve never been very patriotic, it’s all just random birth. The weight that some people give to that random event is beyond me but the more I think about Paddy’s day, the more I think how much of a farce the whole thing is. There’s such an anti-English attitude in this country because the ruling classes of England invaded our country many moons ago, yet when an Englishman comes over and tells us what to believe, what do we do? We make it our official day to celebrate being Irish!

I’ll take my day off work thank’s very much, but personally I won’t be celebrating Patrick’s day. I’m sure junior will get to enjoy the parade. Just like he’ll get an Easter egg and Christmas presents. Until he’s old enough to decide for himself, I won’t be spoiling the better things that come with all this religious mumbo jumbo, by forcing my beliefs on him, unlike the children of the brainwashed who continue to brainwash their own, in billions all over the world.

    Oh. Thanks!! 🙂

    As for Paddy, it was probably Wales but most academic sources say West Britian is all they can be sure of. Where’s he’s actually from is less of a concern and more of an amusement for me. The main thing is that he came over here and plagued our country with a religious fervour that ended up in the establishment of the Catholic Church. I definitely won’t be celebrating that.

    Cheers for the comments!
