What about the persecuted Presbyterians?

Published 28/06/2012

Much has been made of the Queen's visit to both the Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen and St Michael's Church - the latter being the first time she visited a Catholic church in Ireland, which has been hailed as a significant reconciliatory gesture.

Perhaps she should have visited a Presbyterian or brethren church, or that of any other evangelical Protestant denomination.

Not only would that be in step with the majority of church-going Christians in the province, but it would represent a far greater act of reconciliation - this time towards the descendants of low church Protestants so ruthlessly persecuted by the Queen's ancestors.
