A bearded sky wizard raped a middle eastern woman, then raped the daughter concieved in the attack so his grandson/son/himself could preach anti imperialist socialism, be executed, become a zombie, then die again to save a bit of our bodies medical science cannot find from eternal sexual torture in a part of the planet we cannot find so we can go to a place in space we also cannot find to live happily ever after. To help this we cannibalistically eat the zombies flesh and drink his blood to telepathically communicate with the bearded guy, who also is his own grandon/son. The custodians of this religion, who now preach dogma that suits wealth and power, live in fabulous wealth in Rome, having moved from Turkey for political reasons, off the teat of a Dutch offshore company and have waged war and organised rape, murder, human trafficking and medical experiment rings.

Yeah, definitely not alien to Ireland.
erm, other than that, how did you find the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

I'm entirely with you in opening the Croker up for Eid or any other bit of nonsense that will help there being a cup for some county by the end of this year, but, you know what...I'm beginning to suspect that that aint your primary motivation.

Because it matured in Arabia and North Africa. Anyone who ever worked in Arabia or North Africa would know that. This fact has nothing to do with value judgement.
It is based on the
It's totally alien to Irish culture in a way that many forms of Christianity just aren't. This is really obvious too

My motivation is simple. There is a group of foreign extremists paying Irish extremists to whip up racial tension. The same arseholes complain that muslims won't integrate. When they do, they show up protesting and abusing people, and specifically the Gardai. This shit needs to be dealt with before they kill someone. They are getting bolder and bolder.

There are plenty of public field areas they could have gone to for this. It is all about symbolism. Shame on the GAA for falling for it.
Do those fields have gates to restrict numbers, clearly marked out social distance spacing, toilets, food and an area for the guests they invited?

What symbolism?

Falling for what? It was a commercial transaction.

I guess That Ireland’s a progressive country that respects religions and is mostly filled with people and organisations who will try and facilitate reasonable religious gatherings.

Totally irrelevant. The religions are completely different. Different liturgy, moral values, religious texts etc

That is a statement without out any supporting evidence. If you wish to put forward that argument could you please give the supporting evidence in this particular case.

Looking forward to hearing something like this in the years to come 'And its Ablahram with the initiative, Wayne Murphy hasn't stopped his run, he points it high, and he points it well.' Another point for Tipp and now they only trail by a goal and ten points.:)
Meh, Tipp don't trail by one goal and ten points ever. What's the name of the planet you're on?

What part in particular? Do you not understand how different Islam and Christianity are? It's very obvious. Just look at the Eid shindig for example. Christians don't celebrate Eid for starters...

"Eid marks the end of a month of fasting from dawn to sunset, as well as spiritual reflection and prayer. ."

Wikipedia

Lent (Latin: Quadragesima, 'Fortieth') is a solemn religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends approximately six weeks later, before Easter Sunday. The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, and self-denial.

I'm no fan of any religion and thinks it is all ridiculous superstition, but as long as we're stuck with it I see no harm in allowing a few lads to do their rituals on one of theur holiest days (as I understand it Eid is as big a deal in Islam as Easter is in Xtianity, and only actually going on the Hajj would be more important) in an empty stadium.

Besides give it 20 years and this simple gesture will see the old fella weeping for joy into his pint of Guinness as Abdul Og takes the field for Gaillimh v Tipp in the 2040 hurling final

Great to see the GAA opening Croke Park to the Muslims for their festival, big change from The Bishop throwing in the Ball on All Ireland Final Day.


watch out for a big sponsorship coming from a wealthy Arab Country.
