Interesting quote from that article

Birmingham was led to believe that Catholics were plotting to control all government in the name of the pope. Their parochial schools would destroy the public education system.
Seems like Birmingham was right and everybody else (except the Unionists) was wrong.

Indeed and it makes you realise why the Ku Klux Klan had to murder the priest and why marriage between whites and Puerto Ricans is evil. What a pity that the murder actually caused the Klan to lose some of its influence (because even some of the bigots were shocked.)

Note for young 21st century readers: given the source, it is not entirely impossible that this post is not ironic.
