Re: Atheist Ireland starting community outreach group

Great idea! Perhaps getting leaflets to the general /psychiatric hospitals is a start, the legion of Mary is rife in psych hospitals and a secular option should be there!

Re: New logo and website banner

It seems to look like a bit too abstract, The logo should make someone ask what does that mean/stand for. However A.I. just reminds me of Artificial intelligence. That looks like a shape to me? Nice shade of Green!

Replace a religion in a blaspheme sentence for a political party to get a reaction! E.g. that is a catholic child=that is a fianna fail child= Its wrong to label children. Theyl decide when theyr old enough!

The song was hilarious but it was b4 the watershed and was a bit out of order in fairness! The presenter didn't...

The man ( in reply to the question "Do teachers have to believe in God to get a job in your school?")admitted that in the interview process, teachers must follow the ethos of the sch...

Re: Psychiatric hospitals in Ireland

Its well known that alot of psychiatric hospitals were used the same ways as the laundries with pregnant women being sent there and often ended up staying and raising their children there( St Ita's Portrane for 1). As far as abuse goes i sincerely doubt it mainly because of the fact that Nurses ran ...

Re: Evolution in Ireland
