The faith-schools thread on the general forum has got me to thinking recently about the issue of Sectarianism in Scotland. It's been over six months since Jack McConnell 'cracked down' on Sectarianism and held his wee summit with all the relevant bigots in charge of the bigotry. Now, as far as I can see (and I'm perfectly willing to be corrected) absolutely hee-haw has happenned as a result of that meeting. The Daily Record blamed it on Catholic schools, The catholics came up with some catchy wee soundbite about not teaching bigotry on the syllabus and everything just seemed to continue as before. So what I'm wondering is this: 1) In your opinion, what's it going to take to stop catholics and protestants in this country to stop kicking the shit out of each other (and doing much worse) on a regular basis? 2) Are faith schools the reason why Sectarianism is so prevalent? 3) What are your experiences of it? 4) Why is this a typically Scottish (and Northern Irish) problem? 5) Who's going to win the SPL this year?
