Our 'peace walls' are unchristian

Published 23/02/2016

Pope Francis' injunction that politicians who advocate building walls between people are not Christian applies in Ireland.

In Londonderry and Belfast "peace walls" separate people, but is that defensible for a Christian? Pope Francis would say no.

Are politicians in Ireland - North and South - who give credence to such walls by their silence Christian? Surely not.
