Putting things into perspective

Here is a comment made from Belfast's most senior Orangeman, County Grand Master Dawson Bailie, on Monday in relation to whether the Orange Order condemned the loyalist violence:

"As far as I'm concerned the people to blame for that are the secretary of state, the chief constable and the Parades Commission, fairly and squarely."

"I'm not condemning anything at this moment in time."

Here is a comment left yesterday on United Irelander by Stewart McAfee regarding the Orange Order's despicable plan to parade down the nationalist Garvaghy Road on Christmas Day:

"I think some common ground could be found if the OO were to be accompanied by a band playing Christmas Carols, on what afterall is the birthday of Jesus....who knows, the Garvaghy Road kids, rather than being terrified, might actually enjoy it."

And this is a picture of 22-month old Caleb Finnegan, a victim of the loyalist violence Dawson Bailie refuses to condemn.

Puts it all into perspective, doesn't it? I don't think anything else needs to be said.
