The No vote on Lisbon was two steps backwards for this little Vatican outpost. Every article I read now about a rerun or renegoation or how to fix the problem of the No vote mentions abortion as one of the conditions that this country would have to have guarantees on before going ahead.

The thing is the Inhumane "pro"-Lifers, while they are very vocal and fanactical, are not necessarily in the majority. Yet their agenda is seen to be a fundamental stance of everybody on this island.
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.

From the first link above (ClericalWhispers):

'But last night the Catholic Primary School Management Association (CPSMA) said [...] "...the "one-size-fits-all" approach would deprive parents of the right to send their children to church schools. This was already happening where there was no choice but Educate Together multi-denominational schools."'

Can anyone tell me of a part of the country where the only choice is an Educate Together school? I find this claim very difficult to believe.
