Just read through the detail on this together with aspiring Primary teacher and daughter. This makes it possible for non-religious pupils to get a qualification in Ireland, something that was impossible before.

With the way the wind is blowing in Irish schools, a Hib College qualification could be something really worth having.
Thank you M and J for a great job. Full marks.

Daughter also wants to be a rock star.

Listening to Mick vs Vincent Twomey on Newstalk. Well done Michael. Vincent is slippery and good at wriggling and confusing. All those years of studying theology were not totally wasted, but I think he lost credibility. Pity that he managed to finish off by sounding like a reasonable human being when in fact his written words have shown him to be an unreconstructed bigot. Well done again, Michael.

Yes. I heard the 2nd half. Well done Michael. I liked your retort saying that Hibernia College don't agree with him as they have removed the sections from the course.

He's slippery alright. Even after Michael had said that Hitler invoked The Lord in Mein Kampf to justify his atrocities, Twomey simply repeated that Nazism = Atheism. I was disappointed the host didn't take him up on that.

Also his assertion that all Catholic schools are inclusive and are sympathetic to the beliefs of all parents is clearly nonsense.

The church complains of persecution when it's not allowed to persecute.

I don't understand how some people still believe Hitler was an Atheist considering the amount of evidence that suggest otherwise; and even if he was, he did not commit the atrocities he did in the name of Atheism but due to his anti-Semitism which was propagated by Christianity for centuries and the decades before Hitler.
