Obama to the Irish: Lay off that Catholic education

Yup. Catholic schools. They cause social discord, according to the prez. And Mr. Obama didn't spare protestant schools when he made his remarks in Northern Ireland.

"If towns remain divided -- if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs -- if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division.  It discourages cooperation," said the president as he addressed a gathering of Northern Irish youth.

It appears the president thinks things are much better in America where most kids attend government schools where the state can control the subject and manner of indoctrination.

If Obama's so bold to snip at faith-based schools in Northern Ireland, what's it say about  his view of church-affiliated schools in America. How about home schoolers?

Will those who violate the president's view of universal government education be increasingly targeted as he and his administration (and perhaps subsequent administrations) move forward with so-called fundamental change in America?
