Banning clerics who preach hatred

I was in Northern Ireland at the weekend, and as ever I skimmed through the local papers to see the news that doesn’t get reported over here. A man was shot in the chest as part of a feud between protestant paramilitaries. A fairly hefty bomb was defused in Belfast. A couple of riots, not many injured. And so on.

I doubt it made the mainland editions, but in one of the Irish editions of the sunday newspapers a columnist made a good point: not all the clerics who preach hatred are based in London, or have brown skin.
